follow I offi­ci­ated their sim­ple, inter­faith, per­son­al­ized cer­e­mony along with the lovely voice of Cantor Irene Fallenborgen. Some cus­toms from the Jewish tra­di­tion were included; shar­ing wine , break­ing a glass and a mod­ern ver­sion of the seven bless­ings. Guests com­mented on the beauty of the cer­e­mony and were excited that Michael had finally taken the mar­riage plunge.

Modern Seven Blessings:

  1. May your mar­riage enrich your lives and the lives of every­one around you.
  2. May you work together to build a rela­tion­ship of sub­stance and qual­ity.
  3. May the hon­esty of your com­mu­ni­ca­tion build a foun­da­tion of under­stand­ing, con­nec­tion, and trust.
  4. May you respect each other’s indi­vid­ual per­son­al­ity and phi­los­o­phy, and give each other room to grow and ful­fill each other’s dreams.
  5. May your sense of humor and play­ful spirit con­tinue to enliven your rela­tion­ship.
  6. May you under­stand that nei­ther of you is per­fect: you are both sub­ject to human frail­ties: and may your love strengthen when you fall short of each other’s expec­ta­tions.
  7. May you be “best friends”, bet­ter together than either of you are apart.
