Molly & J | Riverquest Cruise
You may remember the fabulous Molly and J from their couple session that I posted a couple months ago; well, the evening before their wedding day, Molly and J treated their friends and family to a tour of Pittsburgh’s three rivers in RiverQuest’s Explorer vessel, a state-of-the art, eco-friendly hybrid electric bio-diesel boat used for education as well as events. It was a lovely affair, with a spectacular view of the city that you just don’t see every day.
The food, by The Enrico Biscotti Co., was a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds.
Molly and J do more than talk the talk about being eco-conscious; they walk the walk and live it every day.

These two are hilarious when they are goofing off. If a healthy sense of humor is essential to a great marriage, they are set.
Pittsburgh really is a beautiful city.
Soon to come: a selection of photos from Molly and J’s commitment ceremony, which took place at the barn at Fallingwater. Family and friends, FYI: to see all of the photos from the cruise, visit Molly and J’s private online gallery here.
What is a commitment ceremony?
A commitment ceremony is a marriage ceremony in which two people commit their lives to each other, but it isn’t legally binding.
How to plan a commitment ceremony?
Start by thinking about what you want to do and what kind of ceremony you want to have. Exchanging vows and rings are a common part of a commitment ceremony, just like any other wedding, but what you say and do depends on your unique vision! Ask yourself these questions: Where do you want to get married?
Who can perform a commitment ceremony?
Since a commitment ceremony is not legally binding, anyone can marry you. It can be a close friend, a family member or a religious leader.
Is a commitment ceremony legally binding?
A commitment ceremony is very similar to a wedding ceremony. The only real difference between the two is that one is legally binding while the other is not. A commitment ceremony stands as a public affirmation of a couple’s commitment to one another, without it being recognized by the law.
How to perform a commitment ceremony?
A commitment ceremony is typically performed by a celebrant, and it includes the exchanging of vows and rings between the couple, and often readings, poems, and any desired rituals the couple wishes to include.
What happens in a marriage ceremony?
Most wedding ceremonies involve an exchange of marriage vows by a couple, presentation of a gift (offering, rings, symbolic item, flowers, money, dress), and a public proclamation of marriage by an authority figure or celebrant.
How do you show commitment without marriage?
Additionally, mark special occasions with sentimental gestures. Giving your partner a promise ring on a significant anniversary shows your love for and long-term commitment to them — without the pressure of marriage behind it. (Just make sure it’s very clear that you’re not proposing!)
What is a love ceremony?
A commitment ceremony can look just like a wedding, complete with church, wedding gown, and hundreds of guests — but no marriage license. Or, it can be the most alternative event imaginable: a ritual to bless your relationship, or just a big party to celebrate your love.
What do you say at a commitment ceremony?
The officiant welcomes guests to a celebration of the love and commitment between the couple. He or she will probably also say a few words about their relationship, or about marriage/commitment in general.
