Ms. Cassedy has had the privilege of working with several couples to celebrate their marriages. Below are a few examples of unique ceremonies combining rituals from divergent traditions.
A traditional marriage ceremony incorporating a Persian ceremony
Nedda Asadi and Jason Ledgerwood were married on May 4, 2007 in a ceremony they created with the assistance of Ms. Cassedy. The ceremony followed a traditional Christian format and incorporated a Persian altar and ceremony reflecting Nedda’s family background.
A Buddhist-Christian Same-sex wedding ceremony celebrated on June 17, 2008
Peggy Bennington and Annette Friskopp were delighted to be married atop a San Diego Terrace hotel in June 2008 under the newly declared legal sanction of same-sex marriage. The ceremony incorporated a gathering prayer written by Annette, Buddhist wedding vows, and a special blessing recorded by a Christian minister and close friend of Annette’s family. Annette’s two young sons walked the brides down the aisle accompanied by the family pug.
