Scientology Weddings - What are they like?

Here's a good video that tells a bit about Scientology weddings.

The unique thing about Scientology weddings, as with the Scientology religion in general, is that it is built on practical truths that help the individual survive better in life. When applied to a marriage, they help the partners ensure the future of the relationship with the simple principle of A-R-C, standing for Affinity, Reality and Communication.

Read the Scientology Handbook chapter on ARC for information on how to use this in your own relationships -- not just with husband, wife, partner, etc. but in any relationship you have in life.

Very effective!

And here's the video.

Wedding Mania

Well, you can probably guess what's going to be on this blog for the next couple of days, but I'm going to try and keep it interesting. So, here is an interesting article with a couple of cool associated videos: Inside TomKat's Scientology Ceremony

A comments I wanted to make on the article. The reporter is trying to differentiate between a Scientology Wedding Ceremony and a Christian Wedding Ceremony. The religious scholar interviewed is probably correct, but I'd like to add that from my viewpoint, having been the minister at a couple of weddings, I'd say that the Scientology ceremony puts the attention on the people getting married and the creation of their future together.

The Media are rushing around like chickens with their heads cut off

The media frenzy has begun. Of course, the venue is all guesswork, so who knows if they are right or not. Tom hasn't told me personally where it is to be, and I haven't received my invitation yet, but I'm hopeful :)

Anyway, here's an article about the current media favorite: The 15th-century Odescalchi Castle near Lake Bracciano. I must say it looks like a gorgeous spot, well befitting the marriage of the biggest star in the world.

Tom Cruise & Paula Wagner to Run a Film Studio!

Many in the movie business thought that old Sumner Redstone was getting senile (think "King Lear") when he cut off negotiations with Cruise-Wagner Productions and thereby lost Paramount Pictures their biggest money making star, but for Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner it's turning out to have been the perfect decision. Not only did they immediately get production companies camping outside their door but now they are running a film studio!

Tom Cruise, Partner, to Run Film Studio

Rodney star, Jennifer Aspen, tied the knot Saturday, with her longtime beau, actor David O’Donnell.

Los Angeles, CA (FV Newswire) - Rodney star, Jennifer Aspen, and her longtime beau, David O’Donnell, were married Saturday at actress Anne Archer’s home.

It's the first marriage for both Aspen and O’Donnell, also an actor, who have been together for nine years.

Clutching a famed Mark’s Garden bouquet, the vision-in-ivory made her way down the aisle in a Junko Yoshioka for Bonaparte-NY dress, Cynthia Rowley shoes and jewelry by Matthew’s in Studio City.

The Scientology ceremony was held in front of 55 friends and family including Jenna Elfman (Dharma & Greg), Catherine Bell (JAG), Giovanni Ribisi (Saving Private Ryan), Sky Dayton (CEO of Helio) and, of course, Anne Archer herself (Patriot Games). The reception found the happy couple in the garden mingling with guests while munching on taquitos from Tony’s Mexican Grill and tasting their Mani’s Bakery wedding cake.

Aspen, 32, who first caught the spotlight eight years ago as Daphne in television’s Party of Five, will be appearing in the upcoming film Mr. Woodcock (with Billy Bob Thornton, Seann William Scott and Susan Sarandon) and the independent feature Guy in Row Five, both set for release late this fall.

With the help of her uber-organized Mother, Aspen planned and carried out the entire wedding herself in just five weeks’ time.

“I have come to the conclusion that marriage is a wonderful thing,” said Aspen, “and that I should have done it sooner. It has made my relationship with David even better. We’ve been having so much fun!”

The couple will enjoy their honeymoon at the Ritz Carlton in picturesque Laguna Beach.
