basic marriage ceremonies
Just want to get married? Religious pomp and ceremony not wanted? The latest trend in secular marriages is growing and evolving. The Happy Humanist offers basic marriage ceremonies, from 15-minute "quickies" to more emotionally laden services without undue pomp and, well, ceremony.
family reunification and acceptance
Family reunification is one of the most emotionally-charged events, for some, after a period of absence, loss or reconciliation. Adoption into a new family can also be a life-changing experience. The Happy Humanist will help you to re-connect and come to terms of acceptance. Family reunification and acceptance ceremonies require finesse, strategic structuring and, in many ways, empathy. At the end of the day, it can be profoundly personal.
elaborate and creative marriage ceremonies
There is no limit to the human imagination, especially when it comes to creative marriage ceremonies. The way people envision secular marriage seems to be a combination of entertainment and tradition, but even more elaborate "performances" are possible. The Happy Humanist will tend to the essential elements so that you can focus more on creating the performance of a lifetime.
renewal of vows
Already married? Need a "touch-up" on your "account"? Why not renew those vows, made eons ago, with the love of your life? The Happy Humanist offers a holistic approach to this most joyous celebration.
baby naming ceremonies
It turns out that marriage sometimes leads to children (who knew?). Biological babies are amazing but adopted babies also need some love and attention. The Happy Humanist will help you to design a ceremony for the "little one" as an introduction to the world with a new name. Names make our lives simpler. Does your baby have a name?
de-baptism and religious deconversions
Still bothered by baptism, without your consent, when you were an infant? Why not be done with it (baptism) and purge those persistent thoughts? The Happy Humanist will help you to become, well, a humanist and a citizen of the modern world with modern thoughts. Bring a towel.
