Officiating weddings finds me in a number of unique outdoor wedding locations and pursuing many types and styles of ceremonies as I fulfill my primary goal of providing a couple with the ceremony they’ve always wanted. Putting together a labyrinth wedding ceremony is near the top. It is an excellent way to incorporate intentions into a ceremony and provide yourselves, if this is an elopement, or your guests, with a truly unique and memorable wedding ceremony.
Walking the labyrinth starts with some words that set a meditative tone and establish stillness so that as you walk inwardly on the labyrinth, you also go inwardly in yourself. It is about letting go of aspects of yourself that no longer serve you and that wouldn’t serve your marriage. After the ceremony, at the center of the labyrinth, you again walk the labyrinth, outwardly. Here you gain the intentions for your path ahead.
Labyrinths have been around for 1000s of years and have been important in many cultures. Here in the southwest, we naturally adapt to the native American interpretations of the labyrinth.
