Ceremony One

 Greeting: On behalf of the bride and groom and myself we'd like to welcome the friends and family who have come here today to be a part of this joyous occasion.


Introduction: The Union of marriage into which you both are now about to enter, is the closest unto which two people can enter. It's founded upon mutual love and affection. Marriage is God's institution intended for the happiness and welfare of mankind. A union embodying such ideas is not to be entered into lightly.


Vows: (groom repeats) Love is like magic and it always will be, for love still remains life's sweet mystery. Love works in many ways that are wonderous and strange, and there is nothing in life that love can not change.
(bride repeats) Love is unselfish, understanding and kind. For it sees with it's heart and not with it's mind. Love can not be bought. It is priceless and free. Love is like magic, it's life's sweet mystery.
Reverend asks each to agree on vows: Do you ________ take ______ to be your wife and friend from this day forward for better for worse for richer for poorer in sickness and in health to love and to cherish for as long as you both shall live?

Exchange Of Rings: _____ and _____ you have verbally given your word to one another and have chosen to publicly seal your vows by exchanging rings. These rings are a symbol of completeness.The gold is of a type that will not tarnish. May it be a fitting emblem of your love & faith in each other. May your love be as untarnished and complete as these rings.
(bride repeating) ______ with this ring I give to you my promise that from this day forward you will not walk alone. May my heart be your shelter and my arms be your home. May we walk together through all things. May you feel deeply loved, for indeed you are.
(groom repeats)

Pronouncement: "Please join hands" In as much as you have consented in holy matrimony & have pledged the same before God & these witnesses, and by the power vested in me, I now pronounce you husband and wife... you may kiss your bride

Alternate Ring Exchange: These rings are a circle, the symbol of eternity. Like circles your rings have neither a beginning or end, and are tokens of the growing relationship you have come here to celebrate with family and friends.
(Bride and Groom repeat)
"With this ring I thee wed. And with it I bestow upon you,
the treasures of my heart, mind and soul."

By the power vested in me in the state of NY. I now pronounce you Husband and Wife.
