Connie & James Engmann of Happily-Ever-After- Wedding Officiants will once again, officiate the Wisconsin Capitol Pride Commitment Ceremony.
This is a time for LGBTQ couples to publicly state their love & commitment to a Beloved One. This offers couples the opportunity to commit to one another in a very public way in front of family, friends and allies. It is a non-religious ceremony and spiritual in tone. All couples welcome! You may take pictures and invite guests. Michelle of Michelle Martin Photography will be there to take portrait-type photos of each couple who participates. Photograph files will be presented to the couple to use as they wish - at no charge.
The Sophisticates of String Quartet will be providing the music for the ceremony which will include some classical and some pop. They differ from other quartets in that they have two violins, one viola and one bass which give them a most unique sound.
Couples should arrive by 1:00 PM to sign up and check-in for the ceremony and pictures at the WCP Event Booth.
Actual ceremony commencement will take place at 2:22 pm on stage as a group.
*There is no charge to participate in the ceremony however WCP asks that each person who attends the picnic donate $5.
*Photos with Michelle can be arranged during the picnic before or after the ceremony
