Gathering Words


Friends and relatives, we have come here today at the invitation of Bride and Groom to share in the joy of their wedding. This outward celebration that we shall see here, I believe, is an expression of the inner love and devotion they have in their hearts toward one another. I believe marriage is of God and Bride and Groom have come today desiring to be united in this sacred relationship.


Giving of the Bride:

Who is giving this woman to be married to this man?

(Father) Her mother and I do

To the Bride and Groom


The ceremony of Marriage in which you come to be united is one of the first and oldest ceremonies in all the world, celebrated in the beginning in the presence of God Himself. Marriage is a gift in that we give ourselves totally to one another. I believe that marriage is a gift given to comfort the sorrows of life and to magnify life's joys.


A Word on Marriage:


Marriage is the clasping of hands, the blending of two hearts, the union of two lives into one. Your marriage must stand, not by the authority of the state, nor by the seal on your wedding certificate, but by the strength and power of the faith and love you have in one another.

Now, will you please pass your flowers. Turn and face one another and join hands to express your vows of love and devotion each to the other.


Declaration of Intent


Will you please, as an expression that your hearts are joined together in love, now join your hands and face me.

Do you Bride/Groom, offer yourself wholly and joyfully, and do you choose Bride/Groom as the person with whom you will share your life, in laughter and in tears, in conclict and tranquility, loving what you know of her, and trusting what you do know yet?




The word of God tells us what love is like and what love does: Love is patient, love is kind, love is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant. It does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, and it does not take into account a wrong suffered. It does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth. For love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. But above all, love never fails.


Ring Exchange Prelude


Having this kind of love in your hearts for one another, you have chosen to exchange rings as the sign and seal of the promises you are making to one another today.

Rings are very large in their significance. They are made of a precious metal and precious stone and that reminds us that love is not cheap nor common; indeed, love is very costly and dear to us. These rings are also made in a circle and their design tells us that we must keep love continuous throughout our whole lives even as the circle of the ring is continuous. As you wear these rings, whether you are together or apart for even just a moment, may these rings be a constant reminder of the promises you are making to one another this day.


Ring Exchange/Vows


To Groom: Do you have a ring for Bride?

Groom, will you please take this ring and place it upong the third finger of Bride's left hand, and holding her hand in yours, please repeat this promise to Bride, saying after me:

With this ring, I seal my promise, to be your faithful and loving husband, as God is my witness.

To Bride: Do you have a ring for Groom?

Bride, will you please take this ring and place it upong the third finger of Groom's left hand, and holding his hand in yours, please repeat this promise to Groom, saying after me:

With this ring, I seal my promise, to be your faithful and loving wife, as God is my witness.




Bride and Groom, you have come here today before us and before god and have expressed your desire to become husband and wife. You have shown your love and affection by joining hands, and have made promises of faith and devotion, each to the other, and have sealed these promises by the giving and the receiving of rings.

Therefore, it is my privilege and by the authority given to me by the state of Florida, I now pronounce that you are husband and wife.

Groom, you may kiss your wife.




Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my privilege to introduce to you for the first time, Mr. and Mrs. _____________.
