In just a moment, the parents of Bride and Groom will come up and perform, with them, a sand ceremony. Bride and Groom have chosen to become husbands, and by their union, both of their families are joined into one. This sand ceremony symbolizes not only their unity as a couple but the unity of their families. From this day forward, you are a family and by joining together to do pour the sand, it symbolizes that every member of the family is important.
Let’s take one moment to look at each container of sand. Now, they are separate, individual, and perfect in their own right, just as each of you is, and always will be. Once they are poured together, you will have created something no one else ever can. A beautiful work of art that represents who you are together. Each of you is still separate, however, you compliment each other in your blending together. Just as each grain of sand is so tiny that we can never separate them again, so are you all forever changed when it comes to your family. The special bond that you will always have is a cause for celebration.
We will, in a moment, start with their parents. They will be the first to pour their sand into the container. And as each parent pours the sand it’s a representation of the foundation that built Jeremy and Scotty into who they are today and therefore, the foundation of their future together in marriage. The layers of sand will create a beautiful piece of art representing the love and knowledge that each has given to Bride and Groom throughout their lives. Next, both Bride and Groom will pour their sand into the container. This symbolizes their commitment and love for one another as they complete this beautiful piece of art that will last a lifetime.
Lastly, what makes this special is it is not only Bride, Groom, and their parents, but that it is being witnessed by all you, their family and friends present here today. Thank you all for being here on such a special day.
