When you’re ready to tie the knot, let me help you with the cord.

Welcome to Moon River Rituals. I’m Zita Christian, romance writer, wedding officiant, ordained minister, and certified Life-Cycle Celebrant—someone who has been trained in the history and structure of ritual. Most of the weddings I perform are for couples who want a ceremony best described as spiritual but not religious. They might come from different countries or different religions. They may follow no religion. These differences provide opportunities for me to create a wedding ceremony that is truly personal. A beautiful way to honor both families is to weave aspects from the couple’s cultural heritage into a new tradition. Several of my couples have done so by incorporating a handfasting ritual into the wedding ceremony.

If you're thinking of including a handfasting ritual and would like a cord that is elegant and unique, please consider my creations. I'd be happy to make one in your colors. I'm always adding new cords here, so check back often.

Consider taking your vows on an Oathing Stone. My colleague, artist Carol Chaput, works with me to hand-paint stones, making them unique ceremony items, lasting works of art, and treasured family legacies.

Shipping
Each cord or oathing stone comes to you nestled in a gauzy bag, wrapped in tissue paper, and shipped via Priority Mail, insured, within the United States. Each "Nesting Pair" comes in a gift box. As soon as your package is shipped, I'll email confirmation.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please understand that because a handfasting cord is meant to be used by one couple only, I cannot offer refunds.
Additional policies and FAQs
Handcrafted:
Yes, I sew each handfasting cord myself, by hand. My colleague, Carol Chaput, and I paint each oathing stone or Nesting Pair by hand.

Dimensions:
With fringe, each cord is approximately nine feet long. That way, your officiant can ask you three questions, wrap the cord around your wrists after each answer, and still have enough to tie a nice knot. The width of each cord varies according to the ribbons used. Please see the individual descriptions.

Caveats:
The cords are not washable. Spot clean only. The cords are strong but not indestructible. Because some of the cords have beads and could pose a choking hazard, I must caution you about keeping the cord away from small children.

Customized:
Customization is available for the handfasting cords. Looking for a particular color or style? Something romantic? Elegant? Rustic? Wild? I’d be happy to give you a quote.
