Your Commitment Ceremony

A Commitment Ceremony is a ceremony where the couple for some reason cannot or will not legally get married. There are many explanations for each couple’s choice and their reasons are as varied as the couples themselves. Sometimes, a commitment ceremony is called “Affirmation of Love” ceremony, where you affirm your love for one another.

Following are some of the more frequent reasons that couples prefer or decide on a having commitment ceremony to celebrate their love.

As a form of Engagement: You may prefer a commitment ceremony as a defining component of your engagement, until a date is set for your wedding. You may want to have a commitment ceremony in order to “cement” your engagement to each other. This is especially true if for financial or other reasons, you can’t have your wedding within a year or so, and the date is a bit too far in the future.

Marriage - Not Presently Possible: A Commitment Ceremony is a great choice for a couple who, for one reason or another, getting legally married is not a viable option. Some people want to wait for negative feelings after a bad relationship to settle and clear that baggage before starting anew. They are more cautious about taking that proverbial walk down the aisle a second time or have some other very personal reasons to avoid or delay legalizing their present loving relationship. This is the perfect time for a commitment ceremony which assures the love of your life - that your boundless love - is very important to you and that you are compelled to recognize these feelings for another.

Same-Sex Commitment Ceremony: This may be your only option for now, though the laws are changing for the greater good for everyone concerned. A Commitment Ceremony will allow you to celebrate your love for each other with your expression of profound feelings and give you a sense of personal satisfaction. The Commitment Ceremony is sometimes referred to as an Affirmation of Love Ceremony.

Against all Odds - When the entire world seems to oppose you and your beloved, "Why can’t everyone just be more open minded and understanding about our relationship?", you find yourself asking.

One would think everyone would just be delighted knowing that you have found love and happiness. If only this were true.

To ease your conflict and resolve your problems, a Commitment Ceremony can ease the stress caused by interference from others. Your hearts, knowing that you and your beloved can still unite in a private ceremony to fulfill your dreams. Find comfort knowing that we accept you and your beloved and that both of you can celebrate your love’s bliss with a Commitment Ceremony or an affirmation of love ceremony at our private, romantic chapel or your favorite location. No matter which title one gives to this type of ceremony, it is the feelings of the heart that matter.

With the Commitment Ceremony you are offered a choice of either a certificate for the Affirmation of your Love or a Certificate of Commitment. This is not a legal ceremony or certificate.
