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!
