Alisha And Zachary Nowakowski’s Wedding Wedding Ceremony Script

Alisha & Zachary – Elopement 9/5/2020- DRAFT

Processional:

Music will begin and Alisha will be escorted down the aisle with her father. At this point I will ask, who here gives this woman in marriage. The father will respond her mother and I do, then he can return to be seated by his wife and I will ask those to be seated (if there is seating).

Welcome & Introduction

We are gathered together on this day to witness and celebrate the marriage of Alisha Jo Backus & Zachary Nowakoswki. We come together not to mark the start of a relationship, but to acknowledge and strengthen a bond that already exists. This ceremony is an affirmation of that bond and as their dearest family and friends, it is our honor and privilege to stand witness to this event.

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.

Today represents not only the joining of Alisha and Zachary but also the joining of their families and friends.

Alisha & Zachary would like to recognize you all for the love you have offered over the years. Without you all, this day would not be possible.

Zachary has asked that we all take a moment to honor his sister Ariana who is not with us today. We know she is looking down from above and smiling on this blessed event.

OPENING PRAYER

Let us bow our heads in prayer. Lord, we thank you for gathering everyone here today. We ask that you help Alisha and Zachary 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.

While the commitment begins with the two of you, its effect radiates outward. When this commitment is seriously made and continuously fulfilled, it leads to the richest and most rewarding of human relationships.

Your relationship will take more than love. It will take trust, to know in your hearts that you want only the best for each other. Dedication, to stay open to one another, to learn and grow, even when it is difficult to do so. And faith, to go forward together without knowing what the future holds for you both.

While love is our natural state of being, these other qualities are not as easy to come by. They are not a destination, but a journey. Marriage is a give and take between two personalities, a mingling of two endowments which diminishes neither, but enhances both.

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. 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.

Alisha and Zachary, do you, with your family and friends as your witnesses, present yourselves willingly and of your own accord to be joined in marriage?

[If so, say We do]

Will you promise to care for each other in the joys and sorrows of life, come what may, and to share the responsibility for growth and enrichment of your life together?

[If so, say We do]

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. They are a symbol of the words that you speak today. May these rings be from this day forward, your most treasured adornment, and may the love they symbolize, be your most precious possession. As you wear these rings, may they be constant reminders of these glad promises you are making today.

Alisha, take this ring, place it on Zachary’s finger and repeat after me.

I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and faithfulness to you. I promise to love, honor and cherish you until death do us part.

Zachary, take this ring, place it on Alisha’s finger and repeat after me.

I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and faithfulness to you. I promise to love, honor and cherish you until death do us part.

Alisha and Zachary from this moment forward you will never be alone. You will carry with you the love of another person, giving you a completeness and renewed lightness. May your life together be immersed in love and excitement. May you strive to enrich each other in every possible way. And may you work to bring the peace you find to this world.
