Ceremony Information


The ceremony was held inside the Cloisters just outside the Chapel adjacent to the Gallery. The wedding party was dressed in Renaissance period outfits. Click here for a description of the Cloisters.

The ceremony was be performed by The Reverend Linda Olson Peebles, a Unitarian Universalist Minister from the church that we recently joined, The Mount Vernon Unitarian Church in Alexandria, Virginia.

With the help of Linda, and a couple of good books on ceremony planning, we personalized the ceremony to reflect our views on friendship, love, and marriage. Click here for a complete transcript of the ceremony.

The ceremony music was provided by Karen Ashbrook, who played the hammered dulcimer. The ancient sounds of the dulcimer provide the audial equivalent of time travel. Click here for a list of sound samples from her album, "Hills Of Erin". You will need the RealAudio plug-in.
