Valarie And Jimi’s Wedding Wedding Ceremony Script


Linsey: Welcome everyone! We are gathered here today to witness Jimi & Valarie seal their love with marriage after ____ years of being together. Some people say that marriage is the beginning of your story, but it doesn’t start there. It started when you first laid eyes on each other (1st time you met), even if at that time you had no idea how much you two would mean to each other, then adding chapters like your 1st date, 1st kiss, & after years of creating memories & writing chapters to your love story, today you two can enter another chapter titled “Wedding Day”. A day filled with countless congratulations, happy tears, smiles, & love.


Linsey: Now ____ will share a poem with us.

Reader 1: The Elements of Love. May your love be like the earth; Rich, natural, and deeply rooted. May your love be like fire; Passionate, intense, and energetic. May your love be like water; Moving, constantly changing, & never still. May your love be like air; always fragrant, always carefree. Found in the breeze of a whisper, or in the breath of a kiss. May your love be like all four elements; Creating the perfect balance, and to craft the perfect ribbon. To bind these two hearts into one forever.


Linsey: Valarie, please give your flowers to your maid of honor. Jimi & Valarie, please face each other & join hands as you vow your lives to one another. Jimi, will you honor Valarie as your wife? Promise to treasure her? To be at her side in times of sorrow & joy? In good times & tough times? To love & cherish always for all the days of your life? If so, answer I promise.

Jimi: I promise

Exchanging & Blessing of Rings

Linsey: Jimi & Valarie, you have decided to seal your vows with rings you have chosen. ____ please give me the rings. (___ will hand the rings to Linsey.
