Ceremony

CELEBRATING 11 YEARS IN BUSINESS!

10yrinbusanniversarylogo

It is important to choose a ceremony that is right for you. So how do you pick one? Keep these three simple things in mind when deciding on the words that will unite you and your beloved. Choose words that reflect what is important in your marriage. Be in tune with your beliefs, character and personality. Be creative. Dare to be fun, silly and unique… if that is who you are. Remember this is “your” ceremony. Words and trends that may be important to another bride or family member may not necessarily have value to you. The right ceremony speaks to your heart. I look forward to sharing your I DO’s…. Sheri Thomson

THUMBTACK SPOTLIGHT

I DO Weddings by Sheri
(5 ***** reviews)
What do you love about your business?

I love performing weddings, because no matter how big or small, we are celebrating the magic of the couple. I get to help them find fitting words to express and share what love means to them. I get to be present in the moment when emotions take hold and love, in its raw beauty, takes place and lights gently on all who are there to hear. Who wouldn’t want to do this? I love being a wedding officiant. .

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Working at the courts I spoke to many people going through the divorce process. It was sad and soul-sucking. Then on Valentine’s day, I got to help marry people and fell in love with it. Unfortunately, most courthouse weddings end with the couples asking if they are married, because it is so generalized and short. I thought I could make it feel special and romantic. Ten years later, I am still doing just that while meeting some truly amazing people along the way.

 

How does your service stand out?

This business is personal to me. It is not just about making oodles of money as is sometimes conveyed in the wedding industry. No, I cannot afford to do it for free and weddings are an integral and necessary part of my income. But I treat each bride and groom as special individuals. I create and perform interesting, memorable and unique ceremonies that speak to the individuality of my couples. I provide tools to my couples to get to know them better and understand their connection. I also try to establish a bond of confidence and friendship. This is an important life event and I am honored to be chosen to be a part of that.

 

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I like that I get to meet some truly amazing people and families with extra ordinary lives and stories. I like getting to be in different places and learn new customs and traditions and as I have stated many times, I love cake.

Tips to make your ceremony heartfelt, memorable and unique

  • Creativity and originality is always encouraged. Your ceremony doesn’t have to be traditional or by anyone’s rule but your own

  • Choose to write your own vows or rearrange pre created ceremonies to fit your personality, beliefs and your views on love, commitment and marriage

  • Encourage your family, friends or bridal party to participate in unity traditions or readings and poems that are meaningful and uniquely special to you

  • A religious or non denominational ceremony does not have to be a church sermon, but can still honor your faith and beliefs in a romantic wedding

  • In addition to speaking with you about your expectations for your ceremony, I utilize other tools to help get a better understanding of your relationship and how I can make it shine through the words you choose for your ceremony.

  • A Secular or Civil wedding can be fun, romantic and heartfelt

  • Many times, the love I see shared by the couple, inspires me to create brand new ceremonies

  • There’s no right or wrong way to do your ceremony. Go ahead, Be Unique, Be Quirky, Be Offbeat. Be You!

  • But most importantly, BE IN LOVE!

I will travel to your Central Florida wedding or beach venue for your wedding day ceremony and rehearsals. Your ceremony will be delivered in a well spoken and pleasing tone. You and your guests will be engaged throughout the ceremony and your experience will be meaningful and memorable.

I get to see and experience the love between the couple, their family and friends and I am often time privy to some of the most heartfelt and unique vows ever spoken. Oh yes…tears will be shed and laughter will also happen. I am available to make your Florida wedding ceremony special.

Available for Intimate, Destination, Unique and Upscale weddings throughout Central Florida.

And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony – Col 3:14
