As a Life-Cycle Celebrant®, New Jersey-based Jessie Blum works closely with all of her couples in the area to create original and beautiful wedding, civil union, vow renewal, and commitment ceremonies … but she also works with couples WORLDWIDE to help you write your ceremony! And the great thing about an Eclectic Unions ceremony is that all beliefs, backgrounds, traditions, and religions (or lack there of) are respected and honored! If the name seems familiar it's because she's been featured before, but now she's back with photos from some of her more offbeat ceremonies as a result of that feature, AND with a special discount! It's super important to Jessie that her couples get exactly the kind of wedding they want — traditional, non-traditional, and everywhere in between — she can sculpt a ceremony that's as unique as your special snowflake love. Take Heidi and Ryan pictured above — they were married with an Eclectic Unions ceremony that celebrated her Jewish culture and his Trinidadian background, as well as their own personal love and commitment to each other. Jessie also says that she loves brainstorming new rituals and adapting existing ones to her couples. Recently, she did a beer sharing ceremony (for a groom who was a beer connoisseur), tree plantings, circles of love, handfastings, water sharing, wishing stone ceremonies, sand unity ceremonies… there are so many wonderful options and Jessie wants to help you craft one just right for your wedding. For non-East Coasters, Jessie Blum also offers ceremony writing services for couples who want their friend to officiate, or already have an officiant, but want a custom Eclectic Unions wedding ceremony. She also offers ceremony editing services for all of her couples who want to write their own ceremonies, but still want a little bit of help (don't we all?). OFFBEAT DISCOUNT: You guys get a 10% discount if you mention that you found Eclectic Unions through Offbeat Bride!
