Blessed are you, God, who created life.
Blessed are you, God, who created loving people.
Blessed are you, God, who unites loving couples.
Bless these two who stand before you as you blessed the first couple in the Garden of Eden.
Blessed are you, God, who grants the joy of marriage.
May we all see the day when the world will echo with the sounds of feasting and singing. Praised is love, blessed be this union.
This cup of wine is symbolic of the cup of life. As you share this cup of wine, you promise to share all that the future may bring. As you drink from this cup, so may you draw contentment, comfort and happiness from your own cup of life. May you find life’s joys heightened, its bitterness sweetened, and all things hallowed by true respect, companionship and love.
