"I have discovered that most people want more than a civil ceremony at the courthouse to mark the beginning of their new life together. they may not be sure what they believe about God, or may not want religious terminology; but they do want to frame their commitment in spiritual terms. Some couples want a traditional ceremony and others want less tradition. It is my belief that everyone has the right to be spiritually supported in the way they feel most comfortable regardless of their present or past affiliation." Rev. Ethel Porter
This was sent to me after the wedding couple came back from their honeymoon. I have her permission to share. "Dear Ethel, Everyone I know says that ours was the most intimate,meaningful wedding they had ever attended. People called my parents,& wrote cards & emails to me and my family to tell us so & to thank us for inviting them. Thought you might want to know that"-Michele B.
