The above ceremony is a typical wedding ceremony events outline for my Premium wedding ceremony package. My wedding ceremonies are described as Romantic/Contemporary, non secular. The final wedding outline and content is up to the discretion of the bride and groom. Wedding readings, wedding music, unity ceremonies or other special wedding elements can be interspersed throughout the Wedding Ceremony.
