Ingredients for Love and Joy in Marriage.

Welcome, On behalf of Bride and Groom and their families, I welcome you all here today for this most joyous celebration, their wedding.  Groom and Bride, thank you all for coming to witness their expression of Love and Joy as they unite them together in marriage.

We are gathered here at this hour to witness and to celebrate the coming together of two separate lives and hearts. We have come to join this woman, Bride, and this man, Groom, in marriage; to be with them and so to rejoice with them in the making of this important commitment.

The essence of this commitment is the taking of another person in his or her entirety, as lover, companion, and friend. It is therefore a decision which is not to be entered into lightly, but rather undertaken with great consideration, care, and respect for both the other person and oneself.

Marriage lives on the love you give each other and will never grows old, when you celebrate your love for one another with each new day of your lives together.

My wish for both of you today is that your marriage will bring much happiness and joy to each of you. As you know happiness in marriage is not something that just happens; a good marriage, a joyous marriage, a compassionate marriage must be create in each and every day . And it is created in the following ways:

  • Having a mutual sense of values and facing life together.
  • Doing things for each other not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy.
  • Speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude.
  • Do Not look for perfection in each other or in oneself.
  • Seeking to understand first and then to be understood.
  • Showing loving kindness and be tender with one another.
  • Listening with an open and compassionate hearts.
  • Make space and time for your Love to Grow.
  • Be present and show loving-kindness to one another.
  • Remain curious and open with one another as the years pass.
  • Cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor.
  • Giving and creating an atmosphere in which each of you can grow.
  • Never being too old to hold hands or to say I love you.
  • Never go to sleep angry or resentful but see the goodness in your partner.
  • At no time take the other for granted.
  • Continue to share your vision for the future with one another.
  • Finding room for the things of the spirit, the good, and the beautiful.
  • Establishing a relationship, in which independence is equal, dependence is mutual, and obligation is reciprocal.
  • It is Not simply marrying the right partner; it is being the right partner.
  • Bride and Groom's promises have been shared in their hearts and they will be spoken before us now.

    (Groom, please repeat after me)

    to always make us a priority, to honor your dreams, nurture your creativity and feed
    you adventurous spirit. I vow always to invite your laughter, and your tears and to be

Sweet Simple Same-Sex Ceremony 2017

 Welcome, Sweet Love has gathered us here on this beautiful day, to join Partner and Partner in marriage, to be with them and rejoice with them as they make their commitments to one another – the commitments that will begin their new life together as husband and wife.

 Marriage is perhaps the greatest and most challenging adventure of our human experience.  No ceremony can create your marriage; only you can do that – through love and patience; dedication and perseverance; talking and listening, and believing in each other.

A loving marriage is based on shared dreams, hopes, and aspirations for the future.   A compassionate marriage gives us the opportunity to practice love daily, by being gentle, kind, compassionate, and tender with each other’s heart. 

In a loving and kind marriage one is promising to cherish and support one another during the good times and the challenging times. 

A good marriage is also about rejoicing at the miracles that love will bring when your hearts remain committed and open to one another over the years

The essence of the commitments you are about to make t0day is the taking of another person in his or her entirety, as lover, partner, and best friend.  It is therefore a decision, which is not to be entered into lightly, but rather undertaken with great consideration and respect for both the other person and oneself.

Partner and Partner, you have the opportunity in your marriage to create a place a refuge for each others hearts.  You have the opportunity to support each other from a place of love in each and everyday of your lives together.  It is important that you make time for your relationship, your marriage, your new family - your highest priority no matter what demands are made upon your days.  And that you commit to keeping your hearts open to love by being patient, kind, compassionate, and supportive of the other

To be known, loved and accepted in this way, by the one you most love and respect, is a one of life’s most precious gifts

Partner and Partner, there are no ties on earth so sweet and tender as those you are about to assume.  There are no vows so beautiful and joyous as those you are about to make.  There is no institution on earth so sacred as that of the home you are about to form.  You are linking your lives in the closest possible relationship.  Your separate lives, with their own memories, hopes, aspirations, and dreams are being merged into one on this wonderful day.

I will begin with your vows by asking these questions of intention.

Partner, Do you choose Partner to be your Partner, to love her, to honor her , to comfort her , and to cherish her from this day forward?  I Do.

Partner, Do you choose Partner to be your Partner, to love him, to honor him, to comfort him, and to cherish him, from this day forward?  I Do.

Partner and Partner will now exchange their rings as symbols of the unbroken circle of love.  Love freely given has no beginning and no end, no giver and no receiver for each is the always the giver and each is the receiver. 

(Partner, please repeat after me)
Partner, with this ring I give you my love and I join my life with yours.

(Partner, please repeat after me)
Partner, with this ring I give you my love and join my life with yours.

Partner and Partner, May your life together be filled with happiness and many new beginnings, and adventures.  May your love always be graced with ease, kindness, and tenderness.  And may your love over the years grow even deeper than it is today.

Partner and Partner, having pledged your love each to the other before your family and friends present, by the authority vested in me.  I do now pronounce you married.

      You may seal your commitment with a Kiss!

 On this beautiful day, It gives me great pleasure, honor, and joy to be the first to introduce you to Partner and Partner now married.

Congratulations!

 

Sweet Commitments #12 – Elopement
Welcome, we are gathered here on this beautiful day to join Groom and Bride in marriage, to be with them and rejoice with them as they make their commitments to one another – the commitments that will begin their new life together as husband and wife.

Groom and Bride - You fell in love by chance, but you're here today because you're making a choice. You both are choosing each other. You've chosen to be with someone who enhances you, who makes you think, makes you smile, who brings out the best in you.

You have known each other from the first glance of acquaintance to this point of commitment. At some point, you decided to marry. From that moment of “Yes,” to this moment of “Yes,” indeed, you have been making commitments to one another in an informal and beautiful way each and every day.

All of those conversations you have held while travelling, over a meal, during long walks—became unspoken promises of the heart. All these common things that you have shared have strengthened your love and commitment that has lead you to this moment – to your wedding Day.

You're about to make promises to each other that you intend to keep. You're going to vow to take care of each other, to stand up for one another, and find happiness in the other. There's a simple premise to each of these promises: you're vowing to be there for one another no matter what

In a moment, you shall say a few words that will take you across a threshold of life, and things between you will never be quite the same again – as you will be taking your love - your relationship to the next level.

Bride and Groom, the essence of the commitments you are about to make t0day is the taking of another person in his or her entirety.

It is therefore a decision, which is not to be entered into lightly, but rather undertaken with great consideration and respect for both the other person and oneself.

I will begin with your vows by asking you both these questions of intention. After each question you will respond – “We Do” ( This Optional)

      Do you promise to treat each other with compassion, to actively listen, and   
      communicate without judgment? “We Do”

       Do you promise to honor and respect one another in your mutual humanity,       accepting   each other fully in your flaws and strengths?   “We Do”

Do you promise to support each other through good times and bad, and grow together in your love and life experiences? “We Do”

Do you promise to care for one another, in sickness and in health, physically and emotionally? “We Do”

Do you promise to laugh together, to encourage each other to accept challenges, and to create adventures for one another? “We Do”

Do you promise to be say Yes to Love – each day?

Groom and Bride will now share their vows and commitments with one another. You will write your own vows if you choose

Groom and Bride, you will now exchange your rings as symbols of the promises you have made here this day.

(Groom, please repeat after me)  Bride, with this ring, I give you a symbol of my love.Let this ring remind you that I chose you, and will always choose you, to be my partner.

(Bride, please repeat after me) Groom, with this ring, I give you a symbol of my love.  Let this ring remind you that I chose you, and will always choose you, to be my partner.

Groom and Bride, May your life together continue to be filled with happiness and many new beginnings, and adventures. May your love always be graced with ease, kindness, and tenderness. And may your love over the years grow even deeper than it is today.

Bride and Groom, having pledged your love each to the other before this company present, by the authority vested in me. I now pronounce you husband and wife.  Groom, You may kiss your beautiful, Bride!    

Ladies and Gentlemen, family and friend. - It gives me great pleasure to be the first to introduce you to________________________________________! Congratulations
