Officiated by Dawn Scott at Couples Home in East Liverpool, Ohio on December 12th, 2020.
"This couple was so upbeat and happy. They had the house decorated for the holidays so the trees were a nice touch, they even had the cutiest puppy. "
We are gathered here today to witness and celebrate the joining in marriage of Julie Sattler & Joseph Burke. We come together not to mark the start of a relationship, but to acknowledge and strengthen a bond that already exists.
This day is made possible not only because of your love for each other, but through the grace and support of your family and friends. It is our hope that your fulfillment and joy in each other will increase with each passing year.
Marriage is a commitment in life, where two people can find and bring out the very best in each other. It offers opportunities for sharing and growth that no other human relationship can equal, a physical and emotional joining that has the promise of a lifetime.
Let us bow our heads in prayer. Lord, we thank you for gathering everyone here today. We ask that you help Julie and Joseph to remember the strong love that they share. To work that love into practical things so that nothing can divide them. May their love always inspire them to be kind in their words, considerate of the other’s feelings, and concerned for the other’s needs and wishes. Increase their faith and trust in You. Bless their marriage with peace and happiness and make their Love fruitful for Your glory and their joy, both here and in eternity. Amen.
CHARGE TO THE COUPLE
Seeing that no moment is without meaning, we ask that you take this marriage as a beginning of your lives together. Today signifies the creation of a new home and a new family for you both. May you be fulfilled by each other’s love and friendship. May you be overjoyed by the promises you are about to make and the life together you will create.
Remember that in every marriage, there are good times and bad, times of joy and times of sorrow. Marriage is a journey – a time of adventure and excitement enhanced by the love, trust, dedication and faith you share in one another.
May the promises you make to one another today, be lived out to the end of your lives. Tomorrow can bring you the greatest of joys, but today is the day it all begins.

Julie, please repeat after me.

EXCHANGING OF THE RINGS
Having this love in your hearts, you have chosen to seal your vows by exchanging rings.
From the earliest times, the circle has been a sign of completeness. The rings that you have chosen to wear have neither beginning nor end, much like your love for one another.
Joesph, take Julie’s ring and place it on her ring finger and repeat after me:
I give you this ring as a sign that I choose you, to be my wife, my partner, and my best friend to the end of my days.
Julie, take Joesph’s ring and place it on his ring finger and repeat after me:
