This is the ceremony I perform for couples who come to my home.

Wording may vary slightly

We are here today to celebrate one of life's greatest moments, to give recognition to the worth and beauty of love, and to cherish the words that will unite Groom and Bride in marriage.

Vows:

Do you Groom, take Bride to be your beloved wife?
Do you promise to be a tender, faithful husband?
Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish her, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, for better for worse, from this day forward?

Do you Bride, take Groom to be your beloved husband?
Do you promise to be a tender, faithful wife?
Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish him, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, for better for worse, from this day forward?

Rings

Groom and Bride have chosen rings as outward symbols of the commitment they make today. From earliest times, the ring has been a symbol of wedded love. An unbroken and never-ending circle symbolizes a commitment to love that is also never ending.

Groom, place the ring you have chosen on Bride's finger and say to her these words:
With this ring, I marry you.

Bride, place the ring you have chosen on Groom's finger and say to him these words:
With this ring, I marry you.

Pronouncement:

Groom and Bride, having witnessed your vows for marriage, and by the authority vested in me, I pronounce you husband and wife.

Kiss:

You may seal your vows with a kiss.
