The Wedding of
Cheyanna Kaylita Marie Wagner & Riley Levi Paxton

Officiated by Kelli Beth Spedden in Indiana on June 1st, 2018. .


"I loved being able to officiate this wedding! It was my first and for a very close friend. It was simple and cute and took place at the Botanical Conservatory. They've been dating since 2015 and have a beautiful little girl Lina who got to celebrate with her Mommy and Daddy! You saw nothing but love between these two, and when the ceremony was coming to an end, they were inching towards each other ready to kiss! It was adorable, and Google was definitely our best friend. That and the AMM website. Overall, it was a wonderfully beautiful experience, and yes I almost teared up while performing the ceremony!"

Cheyanna Kaylita Marie Wagner And Riley Levi Paxton’s Wedding Wedding Ceremony Script

- Processional:

Wedding party enters

- Invocation:

Well hello everyone. I hope you're all fantastic on this extra special Friday. I'm Kelli one of Cheyanna's closest friends for many years now. This is my first wedding so bear with me. I'm nervous and a single mother, so my prep time has been minimal. (Pause for laughing)

Well today we are here to wed Cheyanna Kaylita Marie Wagner and Riley Levi Paxton on this beautiful 1st of June!

Now I'm supposed to tell you a little bit about marriage. If only that could be summed up in the short time that we have but I'll try.

Simply put it is a commitment, from yourself to another person. You promise to be there, for the good and the bad, in sickness and in health and all of those traditional values.

But really marriage isn't a Hallmark movie every moment of every day. It's compromise. It's loving someone else even on days that you find it hard to even look at them.

Truly we can only be so lucky to find that one person we want to trust so full heartedly. It's a beautiful, awesome and terrifyingly wonderful step in a person's life.

So let's get this show on the road and help this young couple take their first step together for the beginning of the rest of their lives.

I know that was cheesy but it's a wedding.

- Declaration of Intent:

Now I'm need to ask you both a very important question.

Will you both have each other? Through the fights for who's show to watch on Netflix to who's turn it is to help Lina through a teething tantrum?

(Pause for response)

Now I can but I'm not required to ask if anyone objects to this union? Somehow I think if you did you wouldn't be here.

- Vows and Rings Exchange

Now is the time for vows and the exchange of rings, as you place these "binding" pieces of love and declaration on each other's fingers.

Cheyenna and Riley have requested traditional vows. As you say these vows, place your rings on each other's left ring fingers.

"I, _____, take thee, _____, to be my wedded wife/husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part, according to God's holy ordinance; and thereto I pledge thee my faith."

- Pronouncement:

By the power vested in me by the state of Indiana, I now pronounce you man and wife. You you may kiss!

- Recessional:

It's my honor to introduce Mr. and Mrs. Paxton!
