Each of you in attendance this evening was asked to be here because you hold a special place in Groom’s and Bride’s life. You came to honor and witness their love and commitment. Groom and Bride wanted to make each of you a tangible part of this ceremony, therefore, as each of you arrived this evening and entered into this sacred space you were asked to spoon a small amount of white sand into a container.
They chose white sand because of the purity of your love and support to them and their family.
Groom and Bride have chosen varying shades of blue sand for themselves and for each child. Each shade of blue represents each one of them. These blues stand for the peace and calm they feel when together. It stands for the ocean waters deep and full of mystery and beauty. Water that sustains all of life…
Water a great conductor of energy…Water a simple element yet it can change and adapt to any form or environment.
At this time I ask you, Groom and Bride to pour some of your sand into the container because your marriage is the foundation of your family.
Now, I ask that the children join you in pouring their sand together with yours to create a beautiful flow of love and energy.
Lastly, I will fill the remainder of the container with more white sand.
This white sand stands for Universal Love… A love that is eternal and never-ending.
(Family names) please hold hands.
I ask all in attendance to join me in a prayer of blessing upon this beautiful family.
