The individual blankets are then removed and then replaced with a single blanket, representing the couples dedication to each other, covering them together as they enter into their new shared experience. The officiant blesses their union and welcomes them to join together as one on their new life journey filled with peace and happiness.
You may bring your own blankets, 3 are needed, or borrow ours.

As spiritual humanists we are reverent of the beauty of nature, we honor all spiritual beliefs and respect the many traditions our couples wish to share.  We will provide you with a wedding ceremony outline. You may choose your words from our suggestions or you may write your own personal vows which you can share with one another on your wedding day or for those of you that are a bit shy, we will happily read your vows for you.

Our Officiants will perform your ceremony in nature and provide the knowledge and experience to help guide you through this unique and wonderful adventure. Life is an adventure. Begin your lives together under the heavens where the rocks and the trees are listening and the water is your music. Better yet, bring along a Native American flute player to fill the air with sounds that echo from Arizona’s true spirit.

We will happily travel to remote locations, hike for many miles and sleep under the stars.
