Andres & Nguyet Written Vows Ceremony
This wedding ceremony script leaves the couples vows section empty. This script was written by American Marriage Ministries to serve as a starting point for couples that want to have a Christian wedding ceremony. The couple will provide their vows at the ceremony. This script leaves the vows as a surprise for the couple and officiant. We encourage you to use this script as is or build on this script for a more personalized ceremony for the couple.
Beginning of the Wedding Ceremony. Guests are seated followed by the entrance of the Bridal Party.
We are gathered here on this beautiful day in July, to witness the union of Andres Berman and Nguyet Nguyen in matrimony. This is a day of great celebration, for a married life - a shared life - is a great blessing. As Andres and Nguyet embark on this journey together they will be able to nurture a love that makes them better versions of themselves. Marriage is a garden we sow with love, and harvest in personal growth.
Andres and Nguyet, on your journey together, keep your spouse in the space of highest priority in your heart. The love that you share must be guarded and cherished forever, for it is your most valuable treasure. Always remember these words; Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
DECLARATION OF INTENT (Before declaration of intent -Sand Ceremony)
You have chosen to write your vows, and it is with these words you express your binding promises to love, honor, and cherish one another. If you are ready to make these promises to each other I invite you now to face each other and declare your intentions.
When you're ready you may begin.
(couple read the vows they have written) Thank you for sharing your vows with us!
RINGS EXCHANGE (Are there rings to be exchanged?)
The rings you are about to place on each other's fingers are symbols of the love you expressed. They will remind you of the vows you have just spoken, and of the eternal love that you have for one another.
Andres, place the ring on Nguyet's finger and repeat after me.
As this ring encircles your finger… From this moment forward... So will my love forever encircle you... You will never walk alone... My heart will be your shelter... My arms will be your home... We will walk thru life as partners & best friends... I promise to do my best to love, cherish and accept you... Just the way you are... I give you my heart until the end of time... I have no greater gift to give.
Now, Nguyet , place the ring on Andres's finger and repeat after me.
As this ring encircles your finger... from this moment forward... so will my love forever encircle you... You will never walk alone... My heart will be your shelter... My arms will be your home... We will walk thru life as partners & best friends... I promise to do my best to love, cherish and accept you... just the way you are... I give you my heart until the end of time... I have no greater gift to give.
By the power given to me by the American Marriage Ministries and by the State of California, I now pronounce you Husband and Wife. You may kiss your each other.
Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my honor to present for the first time, Mr and Mrs Berman!
End of the Wedding Ceremony.
