Ladies, I FINALLY got an email! whew!
For anyone wondering...the name of the minister who performs their services is Francisco Flores. Remember, it's non-denominational AND the minister could change depending on availability.
Here's an outline of what he'll say:
1st. Reading (Mark 10:6-9) Institution of marriage
Reflexion on the scripture
2nd. Reading (1st. Corinthians 13:4-8a) Love
Meditation on the reading
Prayer for the rings (your hearts)
Vows: Bride, Groom´s name: I give you this ring
Wear it with love and joy
I choose you to be my (wife, husband)
From this day forward
For better or for worst
For richer or for poorer
In sickness and in health
To love and to cherish
For as long as we both shall live
Presentation to the congregation as Mr. and Mrs.
Signing of the certificate.
You may write your own vows.
You can add: Sand ceremony, poems, songs, other readings…etc. I will guide the timing for them, or as you prefer.
It lasts approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
ALSO, and this is a big also (at least for me), they will no longer be allowed to have bonfires on the beach. Landy says its part of the agreement the resort recently made with the gov't. Now, I need to think of something else for AFTER our big shindig!
