Christian Ceremony

OPENING

“Dearly Beloved, We are gathered here today in the sight of God, to celebrate one of life's greatest moments."

“Marriage is an honorable estate, created by God, and signifying unto us the magical union between a man and a woman.”

“Who is it that brings this woman to this man.”

“____________ and ____________, only love will maintain a marriage. Mankind did not create love, love is created by God. Love is freely given and freely accepted, just as God's love of us is unconditional and free.”

“As you travel through life together, I caution you to remember that the true measure of success, the true avenue to joy and peace, is to be found within the love you hold in your hearts. I would ask that you hold the key to your heart very tightly.”

“____________ do you take ____________ to be your wife? Do you promise to love, honor, and protect her, forsaking all others and holding only to her?” ("I do")

“I, ____________ take you ____________ to be my husband. To have and to hold, in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, and I promise my love to you forevermore.”

1 Corinthians 13

“A marriage ceremony represents one of life's greatest commitments, but also is a declaration of love. I wish to read to you what Paul wrote of love in a letter to the Corinthians.”

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”

Ring Exchange

“Wedding rings are an outward and visible sign of an inward spiritual grace, signifying to all the uniting of this man and this woman in marriage.”

“____________, place the ring on ____________ finger and repeat after me. I give you this ring, as a token and pledge, of my constant faith, and abiding love.”
