Marriage and Wedding Services

As an Ordained Minister and Wedding Officiant, Reverend Bruce conducts a variety of wedding ceremonies and offers several pre-marital services 

Interfaith--Intercultural Weddings

When two people from different faiths  or cultures come together, it represents the opportunity to celebrate by honoring the traditions of two families, their beliefs, traditions, their music, food and ways of worshiping. In Reverend Bruce's ceremonies, a bridge of interfaith love is built not only between the marrying couple but also between their families and friends. There is no better way to inspire a beautiful and lasting marriage other than through an inspired interfaith-intercultural ceremony.

Reverend Bruce is happy to also co-officiate ceremonies with members of clergy from all religions such as Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism , Islam and Hinduism.

Spiritual Not Religious

Many couples want a meaningful and "spiritual" ceremony, not necessarily focused on religion but one that celebrates the deep love the couple share and invokes the blessings of family, friends and the Divine Light underlying all religions. Reverend Bruce specializes in spiritual ceremonies that uplift the souls of all involved.

High Involvement Ceremonies

Traditionally, family and friends observe the ceremony in quiet. Alternatively, Reverend Bruce can conduct a high-participation ceremony in which family and friends are actively involved in the ceremony, openly sharing their blessings and support for the new married couple through prayer, poems, heartfelt words and music.

Laying the Groundwork for a Successful Marriage

When two people come together in marriage, they bring the own beliefs, assumptions and ways of communicating.  It often requires conscious communication and mutual sacrifice to make a marriage work. Acquiring time tested principles for marital success can make or break the first year of a marriage.

"Living together happily as one beautiful family with total love is God."

Swami Satchidananda

“Whether you worship Christ, Krishna, Kali or Allah, you actually worship the one Light that is also in you, since It pervades all things.” 
Anandamayi Ma

"Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other."

Dalai Lama
