You’re Spiritual, Not Religious
If you find yourself stuck wanting a meaningful ceremony but unable or unwilling to commit to a full-blown religious event, know that there are plenty of officiants who can make your ceremony uniquely yours. For example, West Orange-based officiant April Beer, 973-865-3740, aprilbeer.com, specializes in personalized, nondenominational, spiritual, interfaith and civil ceremonies. Couples complete "wedding homework," to reveal how they met, proposal details and why they are marrying. "I ask how they feel about using the word ‘God’ and whether they want a religious tone to the ceremony," April says. "We discuss rituals and prayers to include."
