We are gathered here today to celebrate one of life’s greatest moments, the joining of 2 hearts,

In this ceremony today we will witness the joining of ______ and ______ in marriage.

(optional) Who gives this woman to this man?

Today we have come together to witness the joining of these two lives. For them, out of the routine of ordinary life, the extraordinary has happened, they met each other, fell in love and are finalizing it with their wedding today.

A good marriage must be created. In marriage the little things are the big things;

It is never being too old to hold hands,

It is remembering to say “I love you”, at least once a day,

It is never going to sleep angry,

It is standing together to face the world,

It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways,

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget,

It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow,

It is a common search for the good and the beautiful,

It is not only marring the right person, it is being the right person,

_____ and _____, I would ask that you always treat yourself and each other with respect and remind yourselves often of what brought you together today. Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness that your marriage deserves.

When frustration and difficulty assail your marriage, as they do to every relationship at one time or another, focus on what still seems right between you, not only the part that seems wrong. This way, when clouds of trouble hide the sun in your lives and you lose sight of it for a moment, you can remember that the sun is still there. And if each of you will take responsibility for the quality of your life together, it will be marked by abundance and happiness.

(I do’s)

_____, Do you take _____ to be your wife?

Do you promise to love honor, cherish and protect her, forsaking all others and holding only unto her forevermore?

_____, Do you take _____ to be your husband?

Do you promise to love honor, cherish and protect him, forsaking all others and holding only unto him forevermore?

(Repeat after me as you place the rings on each other’s fingers)

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

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

To make this relationship work it will take love, this is the core of your marriage here today.

It will take trust to know that in your hearts, you truly want what’s best for each other.

It will take dedication to stay open to one another and to learn and grow together.

It will take faith, to go forward together, without knowing what the future brings and it will take commitment, to hold true to the journey you both have pledged today.

JOIN HANDS for Sand Ceremony

In the church we light the candles, but on the beach we symbolize the service with the pouring of sand. Would you please step over to the sand table? Each of you has a vile of sand to be poured into the bottle in the center.

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

(Pick up the separate containers and pour into the center container)

Today, this relationship is also symbolized through the pouring of these two individual containers of sand. One representing you, _____ and one representing you, _____ – and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be.

As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but be joined together as one.

Just as these grains of sand can never be separated, our prayer for you today is that your lives together would be blended like the seven seas and may your love swirl around each other like the changing tide.

By the power vested in me by the state of Florida. I now pronounce you man and wife,

You may kiss the bride.

I present to you Mr. and Mrs. _____

Designed by Affordable Beach Weddings Florida

___________ & __________, today you celebrate one of life’s greatest moments and give recognition to the worth and beauty of love, as you join together in vows of marriage.

To make your marriage work will take love. Love should be the core of your marriage, love is the reason you are here. But it also will take trust – to know in your hearts you want the best for each other. It will take dedication – to stay open to one another; to learn and to grow together even when this is not always so easy to do. It will take faith – to always be willing to go forward to tomorrow, never really knowing what tomorrow will bring. And it will take commitment – to hold true to the journey you both now pledge to share together.

(Optional – Rose ceremony or Sand ceremony here)

________________________ and _________________________, in so much as the two of you have agreed to live together in Matrimony, have promised your love for each other by these vows, I now declare you to be Husband and Wife.

________,

As I stand here before you, my eyes looking so deeply into yours, I see all of the things I fell in love with.

As I stand here before you, my heart beating so loudly in my ears, I find myself so lost for the right words to say.

As I stand here before you, this ring in my hand, it makes me remember how complete you make my life.

With every smile, every embrace, every tear you’ve ever wiped from my face. It makes me remember how blessed I really am, how I can’t ever thank the Lord above enough, for allowing you into my life. It makes me remember every laugh we’ve ever shared, every hard time we made it through together, and every beautiful moment there is to come.

________, I give you this ring, my heart, my soul. I give you the everything I am today as I stand before you. I promise to love you, protect you, be with you forever, and cherish every moment as if it were the last moment on earth.

________, I love you. With this ring, let it be known, that over every other person in the world I could be with, I chose you. Let it be known, that with this ring, I’m promising to be here for you for all eternity, ’til death do us part.
