We wanted to represent all 4 of our cultures: Lithuanian, French, Filipino, and African American. We did this through incorporating readings and readers in our ceremony from all of those cultures. We had 14 different people read quick excerpts in multiple languages. They just stood up where they were sitting and read, it felt very organic.
We both are attracted to each other's curiosity, we love to learn from each other. We both have really fierce friendships and invest a lot in our relationships. I think we think of each other as true partners - we have a tremendous amount of respect and admiration for one another. We view each other as sources of support. As cheerleaders. But also as partners that push each other, who believe in the best we each can be.
We chose a close friend as an officiant who was the perfect combination of funny, eloquent, an excellent public speaker with gravitas, and knows us really well. She made us feel comfortable and did an incredible job." - Maxine L
