Wedding Ceremony Book

Father Steve has been a hand bookbinder hobbyist since 1964. While at the Saint Paul Seminary,
Fr. Steve was the seminary library bookbinder for five years.

Now he has developed a business, Special Bindings, so he can enjoy his two favorite things:wedding officiant and bookbinding (or as he humorously says: "hitch and stitch").

An option offered to all his couples is a custom printed, hand bound wedding ceremony book in luscious French velour book fabric. The ceremony book will contain the entire text and musical selections you have chosen for your ceremony.  The ceremony book will be used at your ceremony and you will keep it as a treasured remembrance of your special day.

Cost: $70 plus sales tax for Minnesota residents.

When you meet with Fr. Steve, he will show you a sample wedding ceremony book,
plus the different color velour and designs.

If Fr. Steve will not be your wedding officiant, you can still order a custom bound ceremony book to used by your officiant at your wedding. Go to Special Bindings for more information. The cost will be $70 plus sales tax for Minnesota residents, payable through PayPal.
