New page with sample readings

Hello, clients and friends! I just added a page to my site called “Sample Readings.” If you’re looking for ideas for wedding readings, please take a look. I welcome your additions to the list in the comment section on the page, as well!

And here’s my mom, reading from Khalil Gibran’s “The Prophet”

Los Angeles wedding officiant's mom reads at his wedding

Love one another, but make not a bond of love;
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.
