I know that I am here today as the officiant of your wedding. However, that is really just to make it legal. What you are really doing today is making a public proclamation of your love. Here, in front of these witnesses who will hopefully stand by you. And, even beyond that, you are here to make these promises to each other.
What I’d like the two of you to do now is to take each others hands (if you haven’t already) and look into each other’s eyes - because it is nearly impossible to look into each other’s eyes and lie. But even more so, by looking into each other’s eyes you are looking into each other’s soul’s. That is where your love for each other truly flows from. Take this time to have your souls speak in their language as I speak these words...
Bride and Groom, Do you choose to be husband and wife?
Do You promise to give the best of yourselves
and to ask for no more than you can give?
Do you promise to respect
one another as your own person and to realize
that your interests, needs and desires
are no less important than the other’s?
Do you promise to share your
time and attention,
and to bring joy, strength and imagination
to your relationship?
Do you promise to keep yourselves open to each other,
to allow the other see through the windows of your world and
into your innermost fears and feelings,
secrets and dreams?
Do you promise to grow along alongside each other,
willing to face changes
as you both change
in order to keep your relationship alive and exciting?
Do you promise to love one another in good times and in bad,
with all you have to give,
and all you feel inside,
in the only way you know how ...
completely and forever?
Groom, do you take Bride to be your wife?
Bride do you take Groom to be your husband?
