We are gathered 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 which shall unite [Groom] and [Bride]in marriage.
Marriage is dedication. You give yourself, your life and love, into the hands of the one you love. You do so trustingly and generously. By the same token, each of you receives a gift -- the life and love of the other.
Mark Twain once said that "Marriage makes two fractional lives a whole. It gives to two questioning natures a reason for living. It brings a new gladness to the sunshine, a new fragrance to the flowers, new beauty to the earth, a new mystery to life."
[Groom], do you take [Bride] to be your Wife? ("I do.")
Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish her, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, for better for worse, and holding only unto her? ("I do.")
[Bride], do you take [Groom] to be your Husband? ("I do.")
Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish him, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, for better for worse, holding only unto him? ("I do.")
[Groom], have you a ring for [Bride]?
[Groom] place the ring on [Bride's] finger and repeat after me:
This ring, a gift for you, symbolizes my desire that you be my wife from this day forward.
[Bride], have you a ring for [Groom]?
[Bride] place this ring on [Groom's] finger and repeat after me:
This ring, a gift for you, symbolizes my desire that you be my husband from this day forward.
And now, may the confidence, trust, and affection you have for each other on this day, sustain you as you go forth upon your journey of life together with its joy, its laughter, its sorrow, and its pain. May you fulfill your personal goals with each others help and guidance. May you dwell together in peace, love, and joy.
[Groom] and [Bride], having witnessed your vows for marriage with all who are assembled here, and by the authority vested in me by the State of Ohio, I announce with great joy that you are husband and wife.
You may seal your vows with a kiss.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you [Groom] and [Bride], husband and wife.
