Short Sands, York, Maine

Performed a vow renewal for a wonderful couple that I married 10 years ago at Short Sands last Thursday afternoon. I still had the wedding ceremony that I had performed for them so, basically, we recreated that ceremony to be their vow renewal ceremony. It was delightful! The couple exchanged rings again and, although they did not perform the sand ceremony that was included in their marriage ceremony, I was able to take some beautiful words from that ceremony and use them in their renewal. I’ve included those words below. The couple’s daughter and son-in-law were there along with their dog Bella. The weather was pleasant but windy. Color was maroon. All the best Doug & Stefany!

“As you stand beside the ocean tide, may your love always be as constant as these never-ending waves that pour near your feet, flowing endlessly from the depths of the sea.

Your love came softly upon each other’s hearts, just as the foam comes softly upon the sand.

And just as there will never be a morning without the ocean’s flow, so will there never be a day without love for each other.

You have rededicated yourselves on this day to your love being as dependable as the tide.

As these waters nourish the earth and sustain life, may your constant devotion nourish and sustain you until the end of time.”
