My philosophy of marriage:
As a Reverend, I don't just perform weddings, I preside at wedding ceremonies which I believe are of God. It's a spiritual act of worship. I believe that a bride and groom should gather in the sight of God as well as with their friends and family to celebrate and to ask for God's blessing. That does not mean that my wedding ceremonies are "long and super spiritual". As a matter of fact, most of the ceremonies I officiate are only 20-30 minutes long (It all depends on what is included in the ceremony). It means that there is an acknowledgment of God and moment of prayer during the ceremony. I like to think of marriage not just like a “Beautiful Duet” but more like a “Holy Trio” made up of a man, a woman, and God.
