Provenance was born from a desire to re-capture meaning in our modern world. The rapid decline in organized religion, coupled with an increasing reliance on technology to mediate and validate experience, has created a crisis in meaning: we’ve thrown out the map but don’t know where to go.
Nowhere is this more evident than weddings. While religious leaders and judges have relied for centuries on tradition and ancient texts to dictate standards, modern couples often lack a north star. They may seek to blend disparate religious or cultural traditions, honor unique family structures, or incorporate secular inspiration — presenting the challenge of designing a personalized ritual without precedent.
Provenance seeks to meet that challenge, and therein, facilitate ceremonies that strip away artifice and achieve something true. Learning from our own successes (as well as snafus!) officiating weddings for loved ones, Provenance’s founding team set out to develop a sleek service that makes any novice a master at designing a ceremony from scratch. We’ve removed the barriers between you and a celebration that is tailored to perfection.
Our Ceremony Designer, Speechwriting Service, and Inspiration Library empower couples to boldly step away from socially prescribed expectations, towards wedding ceremonies that feel unique to them.
At best, our work is invisible — the scaffolding with which users create opportunities to connect with loved ones, discover and express their values, and achieve meaningful moments worth remembering for a lifetime.
