Many couples want a sweet and special wedding ceremony that speaks to their shared values without presenting the beliefs of a particular faith. Whether you want a heartfelt, spiritual observance, or a sentimental civil service our ordained non-denominational ministers are here for you.
With many services to choose from, we can mix and match, add candle or sand ceremonies as well as blending families or adding children. If you have an idea or tradition we can incorporate them into any wedding service.
At It's a Magical Moment there's never an issue with "Can we do it this way?" We can make anything happen. Let us perform your wedding ceremony exactly as YOU want it. Inside, outside, beach, boat, small, large or just the five of us... where ever and whatever YOU wish. It's YOUR day. Please contact us today to see how we can make your wedding a truly Magical Moment.

It is not looking for perfection in each other. It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and sense of humor. It is having the capacity to forgive and forget. It is giving each other an
atmosphere in which each can grow. It is finding room for things of the spirit. It is the common search for the good and the beautiful. It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal. It is not marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.
Let your love be stronger than your anger.
Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it better to bend than break.
Look for the best in your beloved rather than the worst.
Confide is your partner and ask for help when you need it.
Remember true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship.
Give your spouse the same courtesies and kindness you bestow upon your friends.
Say I love you every day...
