Why isn't punya in this sentence and what would the translation be like if it was?

'punya' = to have, to own.
'punya' cannot be used in a sentence like this.
That would mean that you own the ceremony, that the ceremony is in your possession.

Oh ok, I see. Would it be correct if "ada" was included?
