PROCESSION

  • Ceremony begins.

WELCOME & INVOCATION 

Officiant to the reception and the couple

We are gathered here today to celebrate one of life’s greatest moments and to cherish the words which shall unite (Partner A) and (Partner B).

Marriage is a promise between two people who love, trust, and honor each other as individuals, and who choose to spend the rest of their lives together. It is a symbol of how far you have come these past few years. It is a symbol of the promises you will make to each other to continue growing stronger as individuals and as partners no matter what challenges you face.

DECLARATION OF INTENT

Officiant to the couple

(Partner A) and (Partner B), no words of mine or any other person can truly marry each of you to the other. That is done only when you exchange your promises and commit yourselves to this marriage and each other. So I ask you: 

Officiant to Partner A

Do you, (Partner A), take (Partner B) to be your lawfully wedded spouse? To honor and to cherish them from this day forward, sharing your life through good times and bad, offering kindness, patience, and comfort each day, for as long as love shall last? 

Partner A

I do. 

Officiant to Partner B

Do you, (Partner B), take (Partner A) to be your lawfully wedded spouse? To honor and to cherish them from this day forward, sharing your life through good times and bad, offering kindness, patience, and comfort each day, for as long as love shall last? 

Partner B

I do. 

RING & VOW EXCHANGE 

Officiant to the couple 

The ring, an unbroken circle, represents unending love. As often as either of you look upon these rings, may you be reminded of this moment and the love you have promised to one another. 

Officiant to Partner A 

(Partner A), please place the ring on (Partner B's) hand and repeat these words of love:

I give you this ring to wear with love and joy.

As a ring has no end,

neither shall my love for you.

I choose you to be my spouse

this day and forever more.

  • PARTNER A REPEATS EACH LINE IN TURN.

 

Officiant to Partner B

(Partner B), please place the ring on (Partner A's) hand and repeat these words of love: 

I give you this ring to wear with love and joy.

As a ring has no end,

neither shall my love for you.

I choose you to be my spouse

this day and forever more.

  • PARTNER B REPEATS EACH LINE IN TURN.

PRONOUNCEMENT

Officiant to the couple and to the reception

And now, as much as you, (Partner A) and (Partner B) have given and pledged your love and faithfulness, each to the other, and have declared the same by joining hands, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the state of (Name of State) and American Marriage Ministries, I now pronounce you married! (or Spouses for life / etc) 

You may now seal your marriage with a kiss!
