I__________take you___________for my lawful wife, my partner in life, my one true love. I will cherish our friendship and love you always.

I will love you though the best and the worst, through the difficult and the easy. Whatever may come I will always be at your side, as I have given you my love so I give you my life to keep.

______________and _________________, you have joined together for your marriage today but your individual identities will not be extinguished but will burn brighter because in becoming one you also have become more fully yourselves. Always focus on what seems right between you if frustration or difficulty assail your marriage, not the part that seems wrong. And if you each take responsibility for the quality of your life together, it will be strengthened by your love and respect for each other.

(I say to groom)_____________do you take ____________to be your wife? (he says “I do”)

(religious passage goes here) (optional)

The rings;

From the earliest of times, the circle has become a symbol of completeness, a symbol of committed love. An unbroken and never ending circle representing a commitment of love that is also never ending. When either of you looks at your rings, I hope that you will be reminded of the vows you made here today, to love and respect each other in your shared life together.

With this ring, I _____________take thee _______________to be my wife. To have and to hold, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, in joy and sorrow. I promise my love to you and with this ring, I take you as my wife as long as we both shall live.

With this ring, I_____________take you_________________to be my husband. To have and to hold, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, in joy and sorrow. I promise my love to you with this ring, I take you as my husband as long as we both shall live.

When you first joined hands and fell in love you did not know where it would lead. And today your hearts and mind are more deeply joined now than you could have imagined they would be. It will take love and dedication to truly know whats best for each other.

It will take trust in your hearts to go forth in the journey in life your both have pledged today.

(Sand Ceremony)

(Each pick up a bottle and pour the contents into bottle in center as I speak)

One represents you___________and one represents you_________________ and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you’ll ever be.

As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers will no longer exist, but be joined together as one. Just as the grains of sand can never be separated, our prayer for you today is that your lives together shall be blended like the mighty sea and may your love be everlasting like the ripples in the sand.

______________and _____________, you have just sealed your relationship by the giving and receiving of rings and the blending of sand, this is a pledge between two people who agree that they will commit themselves to one another throughout their lives.

By the power vested in my by the state of (Florida or Alabama) I now pronounce you man and wife.

You may kiss the bride
