Performed a Classic Wedding Ceremony for a great couple in front of about 100 guests at the Fairways on Sunday. The ceremony included a sand ceremony. Colors were navy blue and orange. Here are the words to the sand ceremony…
“Steve and Missy, 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 representing you, Stephen and all that you were, all that you are,
and all that you will ever be,
and the other representing you, Melissa, 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,
but will be joined together as one…
[Bride and Groom pour sand into center container]
Just as these grains of sand
can never be separated and poured again into their individual containers,
so will your marriage be.”
All the best Missy and Steve!
