Bedford Village Inn (The Grand), Bedford, NH

Wed a nice couple in a Classic Wedding Ceremony at the Inn on Sunday. The wedding featured a Sand Ceremony. Here are the words we used…

Byron and Jennifer, you have just sealed your relationship by the giving and receiving of rings.

And this covenant is a relationship pledge between two people who agree that they will commit themselves to one another throughout their lives.

The most beautiful example of this partnership is the marriage relationship. You have committed here today to share the rest of your lives with each other.

Today, this relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these two individual containers of Sand into one.

One container representing you, Byron, and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be, and the other representing you, Jennifer, and all that you were, and 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.

Byron & Jennifer, please pour your individual containers of Sand into the third container.

Jennifer & Byron, just as these grains of Sand can never be separated and poured again into their individual containers, so will your marriage be.

The wedding color was silver. Congratulations, Byron & Jennifer!

Performed a Classic Wedding Ceremony for a wonderful couple in front of about 75 family and friends outside at the Andover Country Club on Saturday. It was the first wedding I’ve ever done there, and it was great. The weather cooperated, as we got a great break from the oppressive heat and humidity that had plagued us for the past week.

The McDonnell Conservation Area was the site for a Lite Wedding Ceremony on Saturday afternoon. The couple brought about 15 guests with them to help them celebrate! We abandoned the site where I usually perform ceremonies here because the recent rains had caused a rise in the river enough to cover the spot. But, fear not, the couple found another great spot they liked! Best Wishes, Aaron & Tammy!

Fratello’s Italian Grille, Manchester, NH

June 25, 2018 by NH Justice of the Peace John Scuto

Married a great couple in a Classic Spiritual Wedding Ceremony at Fratello’s on Saturday evening. A song recording sung by the couple was used for the processional tune. The ceremony featured a unity candle ritual, where we used the following passage following the lighting of the center candle and the extinguishing of the two taper candles:

“From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls are destined for each other and find each other, their streams of light flow together and a single brighter light goes forth from their being.”

The color was pink. All-in-all, a wonderful ceremony! All the best, Ron & Joan!
