Special and unique moment, the marriage vows, it is your union formalization. The ceremony is the official moment in which you are declaring your love in front of your familiars and friends, minutes full of strong emotions. The choice of ceremony location is as important as the reception location, indeed not always it is possible to formalise your marriage in the same location where you are going to have the reception. Sometimes it happens that you need to have only a symbolic ceremony if the location is not an authorized municipal house.
