“Alternative” wedding ceremonies are quickly becoming the norm in the United States as ethnic cultures merge and people willingly embrace love where they find it. Couples planning an interfaith, interethnic, or interracial marriage often encounter difficulty identifying the right rituals and language for their ceremony or struggle to appease their parents or relatives. This book will help couples learn more about each other’s faiths and family mindset, freeing them to create a wedding that truly blesses their married life.
Reverend Brockway explains her motivation to write this text: “This book was a very personal mission for me. As an interfaith minister, I deal with so many diverse couples, from so many different backgrounds, but the common denominator with all couples boils down to love. So the book focuses on celebrating the love between the couple as the most important part of the ceremony, and weaves in honoring family, cultures, and traditions in a way that is personally meaningful to the couple.”
