Tamia & Shawn Santana

Interfaith Message From the Wedding Ceremony:

As Shawn and Tamia are joined, so are their families and friends united through them.  They represent an ideal of what the world is becoming – a rich blending of races, cultures, ages and religions.  Shawn comes from a heritage of Protestant, Roman Catholic, Moslem, Native American Pawnee Tribe, African, Trinidadian, Bajan, Cuban, Puerto Rican and Irish.  Tamia has a heritage of Scottish, Finnish, African, South American, Bajan, Christian, Jewish and earth-based religions.  Elijah is the product of all these and symbolizes the harmony and beauty created by inclusion.  This family represents the best of our future.  As a visible symbol of this union, please turn to someone you don’t know and hug them and say, “Welcome to the Family!”

“As an Interfaith minister, Rev. Seana was extremely sensitive to the different cultures, religions, races and backgrounds of the two families she was uniting.  She drafted a memorable wedding that was personal and unique, as well as fun.  She helped us think through things pertinent to an outdoor wedding we would not have thought of from the lack of a sound system, summer noon time heat and taking the live butterflies off ice at the beginning of the ceremony.  She also coordinated the toasts at the reception and helped organize the wedding photos so we have beautiful family portraits to give as gifts.  She’s the best!”
