Officiant: Family and friends, welcome to the blending of two hearts and two lives into one beautiful whole. [Bride] and [Groom] have long planned and anticipated this event and they will remember this day, and your supportive presence here, for the rest of their lives. They have expressed their love to each other every day for many months in private, but today is special because today they will express and vow their love for each other in front of you. Without you, this moment would not exist and we are all grateful to you for gracing us with your presence.

We also welcome the presence of God who has chosen to bless this couple with faithfullness and protection on this day and every day. Without the life that flows to and through us from the Divine Source, we would not be able to experience this wedding, today's fellowship or any of the other blessings bestowed upon us in this world. We are grateful for and humbled by the gifts of life and love that we celebrate here today.

[Bride] and [Groom], you have waited for this moment, planned for this moment and worked towards this moment for a long time. Now I ask that you simply be in this moment. I’m going to be silent while you, while all of us, stop thinking about where we are going to be in the future and simply celebrate where we are right now. This is the moment you planned for, take a few deep breaths right now and enjoy your wedding!

(Moment of silence)

Officiant: [Groom], you did not come to be here without the love and support of others. You were born into this world and were nurtured and protected as you grew into the strong and capable man you now are. Who so loved the boy that he, in time, became this man?

Family of the Groom: We did and we do.

Officiant: And are you now willing to share your son that he may join this woman and will you now embrace her as your daughter?

Family of the Groom: We are.

Groom: Thank you for your love, your support and your blessings on my marriage to [Bride] whom I love.

Bride: Thank you for your love, your support and your gift of [Groom] whom I love.

(Vows of love and commitment either recited, read from cards or read by Officiant and responded to with "I do")

Officiant: May I have the rings please?

The wedding ring is a complete and perfect circle with no end and no beginning. It is the symbol of both the universe we are all a part of and of your love and commitment to each other. The giving and receiving of these rings will bind you both to the vows you have made.

(In Prayer) Creator of All, thank you for blessing these rings. May they serve to always remind [Bride] and [Groom] of the promises they have made to each other today. May your endless love and boundless wisdom surround these rings, these two before me and all of those gathered to witness this exchange today. In your name, we pray. Amen.

Groom: [Bride], please accept this ring as an constant symbol of my vows,. I offer it with all that I am, all that I have and all that I will ever be. May I love you, honor you and respect you, for as long as we both shall live.

(Groom places ring on Bride’s finger)

Officiant: You have each received the blessings of your families. You have vowed to love each other. You have offered and accepted rings to wear as a symbol of those vows. And you have done this all in the presence and company of your dearest friends and most beloved family. It is now my most humble honor to declare to you and all those assembled here that you are now, legally and spiritually, husband and wife.

You may now enjoy the first kiss of your long and fruitful marriage.
