Sacred Wedding Alter Ceremonies


A beautiful way to add a sense of the sacred to your wedding ceremony is the addition of a wedding altar. The altar can be a table placed near the ceremony site. Items such as statues, the family bible, other sacred books, memorabilia like feathers, sea shells, crystals, photographs and any objects that have meaning to you can be part of your wedding altar.

A sacred altar provides a hallowed space to exchange your weddings vows. The wedding rings can be placed on the altar before the ceremony, the blessing of the rings and the exchange of rings can be performed at the altar. Guests can be invited to bring a small item to place on the altar before the ceremony begins. This wedding altar can be used for the unity candle ceremony, the sand ceremony, or any other unity ritual you would like to incorporate into your wedding.
