As New Jersey wedding officiants for over 25 years, we have seen a lot of changes to how brides and grooms exchange their wedding vows. Couples increasingly look outside religion to contemporary culture and music as inspiration for their vows.

Couples today have shared their vows with references from their favorite televisions shows and other cultural trends. Some couples who are looking outside accepted custom are influenced by the nostalgic past, the fictional future, or even apocalyptic fantasy.
One couple from Bergen County, dressed in fantasy character costumes, vowed to love each other in sickness and in health, but also swore that "in the event of an apocalypse, human vampire, zombie or otherwise, I promise to fight and die by your side."
Even people who consider themselves non-religious still yearn for the transcendent, especially in a wedding ceremony. Often times they find it in science fiction.
At a wedding in Somerset County with a "Star Trek" theme, the couple wished to express their feelings about their marriage within the bigger picture of Life. They saw a vast Universe that supports them and wanted to display a more universal way of showing what it means to make a commitment in front of something bigger than themselves.
