Cupid’s Tango

Valentine’s Day. Loved as a favorite day of the year, or dreaded as a forced Hallmark event, the day conjures up emotion in many of us. But once we look past its commercialism, there is a quaint innocence to Cupid’s special day that is deserving of a deeper delve.  In addition to being one of the most popular days to become engaged, it is a popular wedding day, too.  There are many ways that the day of love can inspire your special day!


Cupid is the god of love, attraction, desire and affection – perfect themes to introduce into your wedding ceremony!  Remember these heartfelt reasons you fell for your partner when crafting your wedding vows and the words will flow easily.

A Little Spontaneity

When writing a love note to your Valentine, you want to let it be known how much they mean to you. In light of this, when planning a life together, shout it out! Marry me – now! Why wait until after social distancing rules are relaxed? Have an intimate elopement in the moment, and then do it all over again in front of friends and family later. Working with the same officiant for both provides continuity and an even more meaningful Round Two.

A Little Whimsy

Valentine-themed items in your wedding ceremony provide a little light-hearted loving fun.

  • Do you remember that first kiss? Say so, again and again with a bowl of chocolate kisses. Kiss me!
  • When did you change from “me” to “we”? Share tiny Valentine conversation hearts. Soul mate!
  • Red heart themes: balloons, flowers, even the flower girl’s dress. What is not to love?

However you choose to bring Cupid into your ceremony, your professional JP is bound to have ideas to help. Don’t hesitate to ask for their suggestions, too.
