Buddhist wedding traditions include a blessing for the happy couple.
There is no set wedding service in the Buddhist faith, as the Buddha (founder of the religion) did not consider marriage to be a sacred ceremony. Instead, marriage is considered a social rather than religious occasion.
The Buddha stated only that marriage should be based on deep mutual respect between partners and that it should be a partnership of equals. (Similar to the First Nations Matedness Ceremony).
Often couples will bring in someone to chant and in the end we light incense. Although not seen in the video, James' father did this at this wedding in the Distillery District.
