Officiated by Crystal Lynn Gienger at Key West Beach in Key West, Florida on July 11th, 2019.
"Kristine (my boss) and her husband texted me on morning and asked me to renew their vows. I was speechless by the request. They informed me I can become ordained online. They love Key West and they wanted it on the beach there. I was super excited and nervous since I never did it before. I was so overwhelmed with love and joy knowing that out of all the people they could have chosen for this-they chose me to be a part of their 10 year anniversary and vow renewal. I had never been to Key West but was thrilled to get the chance. To be a part of this special day with them was incredible. The ceremony, the family and friends there at sunset on the beach in Key West was picture perfect. I am grateful that they were the ones that opened the door for me to become ordained. I hope for many more to come."
We are gathered here to day to get through this thing called life. Let's go crazy!!!!!
Adam and Kristine, it is a pleasure to share today's wonderful occasion with you. Many people believe that entering into marriage is the final step in a romantic relationship. A couple meets, get to know one another and fall in love, decide to they want to spend their lives together, and then take the final step-marriage.
But marriage is hardly the final step in a couple's relationship, rather it is the beginning of a grand adventure!
You have shared the joys, blessings and challenges of married life for 10 years. Today you want to reconfirm your commitment to working together and ensuring your marriage blossoms for years to come. May this renewing of the vows you took to become husband and wife remind you that despite the stresses inevitable in everyday life, your love, respect, trust and understanding of each other will continue to increase your contentment and heighten your joy in living.
Adam, will you continue to have Kristine as your wife and continue to live in this marriage? Do you reaffirm your love to her, and will you love, honor and cherish her in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, for better for worse, and forsaking all others, be faithful to her as long you both shall live?
Kristine, will you continue to have Adam as your husband and continue to live in this marriage? Do you reaffirm your love to him, and will you love, honor and cherish him in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, for better for worse, and forsaking all others, be faithful to him as long you both shall live?
On your wedding day you exchanged rings as a symbol of the never-ending circle of love. Rings serve as a reminder of your vows to each other, and your commitment to live in unity, love and happiness. At this time, reconfirm the meaning of the rings you wear.
Please join your left hands together so that Adam's hand is on top. Adam, please repeat after me.......Kristine, I wear this ring you placed on my hand-as a symbol of my love and commitment to you. Now with Kristine's hand on top, Kristine, please repeat after me: Adam, I wear this ring you placed on my hand-as a symbol of my love and commitment to you.
I ask that you continue to cherish each other as special and unique individuals and that you respect the thoughts of ideas of one another. And most of all, be able to forgive each other and not hold grudges. Live each day in love with each other, always being there to give love, comfort, and refuge, in good times and bad.
One of the great blessings of marriage is the joy and responsibility of raising a family. Adam and Kristine have truly been blessed to be the parents of Adam, Jr., Kamron, Mary and Kierney.
As they renewed their vows today, they also renewed their commitment to be loving, caring parents recognizing with gratefulness the happiness and fulfillment that Adam, Kamron, Mary and Kierney have brought to their marriage and family life.
On their wedding day, Adam and Kristine along with their children, joined their separate lives together with a sand ceremony ritual blending their families together. Ten years later, they wish to continue this symbolic ritual representing all that they are and all they will ever be. Adam and Kristine, you are renewing your commitment to share the rest of your lives with each other and with your families.
First, you will each separately pour a layer of sand into the vase, representing who you are as an individual. Then, you will pour simultaneously, blending your two colors as you will blend your lives in marriage.
As the individual grains of sand can no longer be separated, may your bond continue to be inseparable.
But you are also making a bond with your children. As they also contribute their unique personalities and strengths to this family, they will also individually add a layer of sand to this unity vase. Then everyone, will pour together, representing their commitment t each other.
Adam and Kristine, today you have renewed the vows you made to each other on your blessed wedding day. You have symbolized the renewal of your union by the joining of hands, the taking of vows, by the wearing of your rings and the blending of sand.
It is with pleasure that I conclude the ceremony of renewing the vows of marriage that joined you and binds you as husband and wife. Please celebrate this renewal of vows with a kiss!!!
