My aggressively atheist non-religious wedding vows and ceremony script

Our wedding ceremony was admittedly what some might call “aggressively atheist,” and my bridesmaids noticed that a few people looked…surprised? I think those who didn’t know us especially well expected we would do what our own parents did and go with something more standard and semi-religious. We certainly are not in peoples faces about our atheism, but we wanted to be VERY clear about who we are and a wedding is a great time to make yourself known. Feel free to steal these atheist wedding vows!

If you're an online-ordained officiant in Tennessee, you may not be anymore

If you're an officiant in Tennessee who was ordained online, you may not legally be able to officiate weddings anymore. Here's the scoop: as of July 1, 2019, the Tennessee Legislature has put forth HB0213 which will strip the rights of online-ordained officiants from performing weddings. But fear not, one of our amazing vendor partners, American Marriage Ministries (AMM), is going on a tour of six Tennessee cities and towns to re-ordain their ministers.

Tear-jerking (but not too romantic) family wedding readings for all your sisters and pals

My older sister has given me a TON of advice throughout my life, no less so throughout the process of planning my wedding. I want to find a poem or reading to ask her to read that expresses how important this advice has been without being too sappy or evoking God's perspective too much or too bluntly. A lot of readings I come across are more specifically about the couple committing to one another, and I'd like something more along the lines of seeing a new couple through this life stage and supporting them as they beginning their journey as married folk. Help!
