ANNIVERSARIES & VOW RENEWALS
“Real love stories never have endings..."
They have chapters, each worthy of pause and reflection before starting the next.
(Richard David Bach)
Let’s be honest… the people we were at the time of our marriages are not the same people we are even five years later… say nothing of 50 years. We learn more about ourselves; we learn more about our partners. As a result, we often change. And, as we change and grow, shouldn’t the personal sentiments we made to our beloved (aside from the traditional vows, which are intended to be eternal) change and grow as well?
At KEIRUV, we are a big proponent of incorporating regular anniversary and/or vow renewal celebrations into the spiritual life-cycle of one’s marriage. They can serve as valued times of reflection and renewed direction. As well, they can include new family and friends, who have become so integral to our lives, who may not have been present at the time of the initial wedding.
These anniversary or vow-renewal celebrations can take place anywhere: from the intimacy of a home’s backyard to large themed-parks, over a formal dinner or amidst a BBQ picnic. Whatever your desire, KEIRUV wishes to partner with you to create a ceremony that both offers gratitude for the journey thus far taken and inspiration for the miles that remain ahead. May they continue to be filled with lasting meaning!
FEE: None (except expense reimbursement). However, KEIRUV will ask you for a “Pay-It-Forward” Donation to help other families, couples, individuals in need. To find out more, visit our DONATE page or connect with us via our CONTACT page. Thank you!
“Every five years, we get remarried. By design, no two weddings have been the same. We like to keep things fresh. In reaching out to Rabbi Marshal, we found someone whose creativity and compassion matched our own, leading to a truly memorable 25th anniversary. As we rode a large, boardwalk Ferris Wheel (indicative of the ups and downs of life), Rabbi Marshal officiated over a short wedding ceremony, complete with kiddush and stomping glass! 'Awesome' doesn't even begin to describe it! (K.K.)
