Ceremony Writing

Do you want a ceremony that reflects who you are as a couple? Are you looking for a ceremony that lasts longer than five minutes and leaves your guests in awe of your commitment to each other? If so, you’ve come to the right place.
Cate Bates Events and Design is a Jacksonville wedding planner and event planning firm based in Jacksonville Fl.
Whether you want simple or elaborate, non-traditional or spiritual, the ceremony is the beginning of why everyone is there. With Cate Bates Events and Design you’re not going to get a ceremony script with just the names filled in. We will work with you to build and write your ceremony. We’ll discuss your vision, the elements and rituals you’d like to include, the readings you hold close to your heart, how to approach your vows, create the perfect processional; there is no detail too small.

Cate believes in marriage. Cate’s grandparents were married for 62 years, her in-laws for 40 (and counting!) and her parents are approaching 34 years together. She has seen first-hand how powerful the institution can be and how marriage can let people help lift each other up to the best versions of themselves. And even though Cate Bates Events and Design knows how to throw an unforgettable party, no amount of detail can take the place of why the friends and family have gathered.

In the end, it all starts back at the beginning with a ceremony celebrating the strength of the marriage at hand.
