In a second marriage, it is often important to let children know how much they are loved along with their importance in the marriage and all that is to follow. For this reason, a Family Medallion Ceremony is available for you.
After the Couple exchange their wedding rings, the minister will call on the child(ren) to come forward and will talk about their role in the marriage and how important they are to you. The medallions will then be presented. Normally, the non-biological parent will place the medallion on the child(ren) as a symbol of bringing them into the new family.
The medallion comes in silver or gold plate. This beautiful charm is placed on a chain that is presented to your child(ren) during the ceremony. Ask your coordinator for details.
Want to create a custom family ceremony? We can help. There is a $35 fee for family ceremonies added to your traditional ceremony. Some couples bring 'gifts' for their children or include them in the Unity Ceremony.
