The Native Spiritual Wedding is a ceremony based on the ancient traditions of the indigenous nations of the North American continent, in which we have rescued elements of pre-hispanic origin to unite the marrying couple in a spiritual bond.
For more than 500 years these ceremonies have been kept by the guardians of the tradition and have been passed down orally from one generation to the next. For us it is a pleasure and an honor to continue performing and sharing these ceremonies in these times.
The Native Spiritual Wedding is a highly emotional ceremony meant to reach the heart of the couple and the attendees.
When the bride and groom enter the altar space, they are received with copal smoke, songs, chants, and the music of the drum.
The purpose of the ceremony is presented: the spiritual union of the couple.
Using the sound of the conch shell, we guide the bride and groom and their guests in asking for permission and blessings from the guardians of the four directions: North, South, East and West, as well as the heart of the heavens, the heart of the Earth, and in the very core, the heart of the Universe.
The couple is covered with a mantle that is tied with seven ribbons.
The mantle symbolizes the universe that covers and holds the sacred commitment of love from the couple. It represents a sacred mantle protecting this bond.
The seven ribbons symbolize the most important virtues for us: red for humility, yellow for will, black for sincerity, white for integrity, green for Mother Earth, blue for Father Sky and purple for the love that sustains life.
With the mantle tied with ribbons, the couple walks four times around the altar. This symbolizes their taking the journey of life together, and blessing the path so that it is a good one.
In this movement, friends or relatives can participate at the request of the couple.
The couple will be given the blessing of water, seeds, and flowers.
With the rose water, we bless the couple with transparency and fluidity. With seeds, abundance and offspring. With the flowers, the couple will attract affection and sweetness.
The couple then partakes in sharing water, fruit, sweet chocolate, and bitter chocolate, praying that in life and on their path, they can share everything together in abundance, in times of health and illness, in good times and bad, they can share both the sweet moments and the bitter ones together.
These movements are accompanied by incense and the aromatic smoke of the copal, with ceremonial songs and the heart beat of the drum in the background.
They receive the blessings of the four elements: Earth, Water, Wind, and Fire.
Prayers are made for the bride and groom to receive all the love, strength, health, understanding, abundance, and creativity in their relationship and their journey together.
Then the couple, looking into each other's eyes and speaking from the heart, will make their vows of love and commitment. At this moment they give each other the rings.
Family members and friends can express themselves at this time at the request of the couple, to give the couple their advice and good wishes.
In the presence of the spiritual guardians, Heaven and Earth, Mother and Father, Ometeotl the Grand Creator, the two declare themselves husband and wife, partner and companion. The groom can then kiss the bride.
The ceremony is performed in a natural environment and an offering is made to the Earth.
The Native Spiritual Wedding Ceremony is a way to honor and share our cultural and ancestral heritage, uniting in marriage the way our ancestors did.
Our spiritual path and our ceremonies recognize all people, races, beliefs and thoughts within the diversity of the Great Human Family.
The actual ceremony lasts approximately 30 minutes.
A walk-through of the ceremony can be done beforehand at the request of the couple.
A purification ceremony in the temazcal is recommended one day before the wedding ceremony to clarify the mind, calm the emotions, and strengthen the body.
