After the wedding the bride and groom return to an 18th century cottage restored to AIA award-winning comfort. Completely private, peaceful and quiet, the log cabin creates an ambience of blissful companionship. The fireplace is laid and the groom strikes the match. They drink a toast to a lifetime of days as perfect as this one.

In the morning, a celebratory breakfast is served in the
adjoining room at the hour
previously set by the couple.

A couple approaching marriage has thought about the celebration and may have ideas for the words and images for the spoken ceremony. I am at your service to create the vows, pledges and the ceremony that will fit your dreams and set the tone for your future together. Joyful Weddings strives to assist couples with their celebratory choices, ranging from simple traditional vows to image-filled prose based on their shared experiences and values.

Joyful Weddings is dedicated to shaping the ceremony that expresses a couple's style and feelings. Themes may be spiritual, rooted in nature or religious, relaxed or traditional, nostalgic or contemporary.  Language for the ceremony and personal promises is created with the couple in mind. Many couples prefer to write their vows to each other.

Whatever your preferences and plans, Joyful Weddings and Louisa Peat O'Neil, an award winning creative writer, will create a celebration of hope and love for your wedding at Pleasant Springs Farm.

Fees start at $300 which includes an original personalized wedding ceremony, checklist for license, and the celebrant's services at the wedding. Other fees applicable for celebrant's attendance at a rehearsal and more than one revision of the written ceremony text.

a perfect marriage.
