Blessing of the Brides and Grooms in Central Park
By Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway
We had a wonderful Wedding Goddess Blessing of the Brides's and Groom's in Central Park on June 14.
Three couples joined us for the special event to Bless and De-Stress Grooms and Brides-to-Be. We met at the lotus pond in the South Garden of the Central Park Conservatory Garden.
Left to right, the adorable to-be-weds are Jose and Claire (August 2), Jeff and Tiff (September 28) and Jay and Hilda (OCtober 11).
We got through the blessing right before a huge rain storm, which of course, means good luck!
This is an annual blessing I officiate each year with my hubby, Rev. Victor Fuhrman. For those of you who could not be there, here is the opening blessing we shared:
Our prayer for you is that your path to the altar empower you and prepare you for marriage. We begin with a blessing.
May your wedding journey by joyous … and meaningful.
May it be fun and filled with fond memories.
May all your wedding dreams be fulfilled.
May your Big Day be perfect in every way … and may you experience it as perfect, however it unfolds.
May you be uplifted by all the love and support around you.
May you feel centered and calm.
May it lead you to a lifetime of love and happiness.
May these brides and grooms, be blessed.
May all those who came to share in this day be blessed.
May this ceremony be blessed in all ways.
As we open our hearts in celebration, may we all be surrounded and uplifted by love.
And so it is! - Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway
