Bride and Groom have chosen to conclude their ceremony with the tradition of jumping the broom.
Today we honor and celebrate the transition from two separate lives into one life united by love. We place a broom for jumping, which symbolizes the entrance of the couple into a new life together.
Lay the broom down.
Sharing a life with another person requires many “leaps of faith.” The leap they take together over the broom is also symbolic. By taking the leap, they make a gesture of dedication to working together through the tough times ahead, as well as the easy times. They leave behind the past and jump into the future together secure in their love.
Everyone, please count 1, 2, 3… Jump! Together with me now, and shout with joy as they perform their first act of working together as husband and wife;
1, 2, 3, jump!
I do not claim to be the original author of this script. I am sharing it like this to make it easier for anyone to use.
