We gather today for the joining of (Name) and (Name) in bond of matrimony.

Welcome, we are here today to celebrate love. To this world of "no you can't" and "It is not done." To those we are here to say "Yes love can! And Yes love does!" Today the world is invited to celebrate a love between two people: The love that binds them together and makes them one.

They will pledge to be true, and to respect, and to grow through the years together. Time may pass, fortune may smile, trials may come; no matter what they may encounter together, the vow they make here today will be the first step on a life long journey of love and commitment. We celebrate their willingness make my home in each others heart from this day forward.

Today's reading is read by (name)


Marriage should not be entered into lightly, but thoughtfully. With it are both deep joys and responsibilities. Please remember that your miracle lies in the path you have chosen together. Enter into marriage knowing that the true magic of love is not to avoid changes, but to navigate them successfully. Commit to the miracle of making each day work together, for no human ties are more important or more tender.

Please face one another:

Please repeat after me:

Today I , (full name)join my life to yours as your friend, your lover, and your confidant. Let me be the shoulder you lean on, the rock on which you rest, the companion of your life. With you I will walk my path from this day forward to the end of my days.

Repeat with other person.

Do you have the rings?


Let these rings be a sign of unbroken love.

Please repeat:

(Name), I offer myself to you today. I will always love you, respect you and be faithful to you and I give you this ring, in token of my commitment and love.

Repeat with other person.

Now that you have joined yourselves formally in matrimony, may you strive all of your lives to meet this contract with the same sense of love and commitment.

Oh God we call down your blessings on (Name) and (Name) and ask that their days be long, and be seasoned with love, understanding, and respect. And may all of us be blessed by Your love as it shines through them all of their lives.

It is now with great pleasure that I pronounce you spouses for life.

You may kiss.
