Commitment ceremonies are an expression of a same sex couple's commitment to one another that is often celebrated similar to a wedding. While not legally binding, a commitment ceremony in St. Louis is an ideal way to commemorate your commitment to your partner. The Park Avenue Mansion is gay friendly and non-discriminatory.
Whether religious or secular, commitment ceremonies can be unorthodox in style or follow similar protocol to a traditional wedding ceremony, complete with an officiant of the couple's choosing, commitment vows, ring exchange followed by a reception. Couples looking to have a religious leader as an officiant may reach out to their minister. The Unitarian Universalist, Universal Life or Metropolitan Community churches support GLBT commitment ceremonies, while other faiths, such as reform Judaism and Protestant groups, leave the choice to the clergy. The Park Avenue Mansion will work with you and your partner to plan a your perfect ceremony, whether an private elopement of 2 or an intimate gathering of up to 100.
