How do I incorporate the March for Science into my Earth Day wedding?

I am getting married on Earth Day this year, the same day as the March for Science. It's too late to change our wedding date. But I am sad that we will not be downtown at the Scientists' March, demonstrating for something so crucially important. Do you have ideas for how we can be a part of the march, even though we'll be out in the woods in Southern Maryland?

A Whidbey Island cosmos wedding in their own backyard

With the help of their friends and family, Rhiannon and Joe completely transformed their own backyard into a magical space for their Whidbey Island cosmos wedding. The pair runs a print shop together and created signs galore to place all over their backyard in Washington. Each one spoke to their love and the cosmic forces they feel brought them together.

Love transcends time and space: an Interstellar wedding reading for your ceremony

Kate and Winston crafted up a secular ceremony at their Texas meets New York weddings and included a reading we had to share. It's a little snippet from the movie Interstellar that sums up what a lot of us feel about love: that it's all-encompassing and transcends all we know.

If you're looking for a reading for your space-themed wedding or ceremony with a nod to sci-fi, this Interstellar wedding reading is out of this world.

Keep it cosmic AND gender-neutral with this space-themed ceremony script (+ READINGS!)

As a queer person, it was important to me to have a ceremony that reflected our values while avoiding language that was cis- or hetero-centric. Our spiritual and philosophical practices and beliefs include both Christianity and Buddhism, and we both feel strongly about the value of secular institutions. On top of this, our wedding was space-themed! With all these things in mind, we decided to write the gender-neutral space-themed ceremony from scratch.
