Alexa Bando And Corey Christie’s Wedding Wedding Ceremony Script

Dearly beloved family and friends, we are gathered here today to witness & celebrate the uniting of Alexa Bando & Corey Christie in the bonds of holy matrimony. Marriage is an honorable state that is not to be entered into lightly or unadvisedly, but reverently & thoughtfully with great love, joy and enthusiasm.

At this time, I would like to welcome the bride’s sister, Hailey Bando, who will share a reading from the 1st Corinthians:

"Love is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud. Love is never haughty or selfish or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable or touchy. Love does not hold grudges and will hardly notice when others do it wrong. Love is never glad about injustice, but rejoices whenever truth wins out. If you love someone, you will be loyal to them no matter what the costs. You will always believe in them, and always stand your ground defending them."

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Apostle Paul’s words in his letter to the Corinthians, regarding his thoughts on love, are as relevant today as they were when he first wrote them. For any relationship to work it takes an endless amount of love. Love is the foundation that all marriages are built upon & the reason why you both are here today. For your marriage to thrive, it will also take trust: the ability to trust in each other completely, as well as, the trust to know in your hearts that you only want what’s best for one another. It will take dedication, to stay honest with one another & to learn & grow together. It will take faith to go forward together without knowing what the future will bring. And finally, it will take commitment to hold true to the journey you both have chosen to embark upon. For tomorrow can bring you the greatest of joys, but today is the day it all begins!

Please face each other & join hands:

Alexa & Corey, have you come here today, in the presence of your family & friends, willingly, freely & of your own accord to be joined in marriage? ... We do.

Corey, do you take this woman Alexa to be your lawfully wedded wife, to have & to hold, in sickness & in health, in good times & in bad, for richer for poor, keeping yourself unto her for as long as you both shall live? … I do.

And do you Alexa take this man Corey to be your lawfully wedded husband, to have & to hold, in sickness & in health, in good times & in bad, for richer, for poorer, keeping yourself unto him for as long as you both shall live? … I do.

May I please have the rings?...

Please bow your heads: Almighty Father in Heaven we ask that you please place Your blessing upon these rings & upon those who who will wear them with love in their hearts, We humbly ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen. (They take each other’s ring).

Alexa & Corey, you hold in your hands a precious gift that you will soon bestow upon someone who is very dear to you. The wedding ring is a traditional symbol that commemorates marriage. The circle, or ring is continual. It has no beginning & no ending. It is forged of strength & has no point of weakness. The ring is worn as a constant reminder of the deep & special bond between a husband & wife. May you always wear these rings in love, happiness & peace.

Corey please place your ring on Alexa’s left hand & repeat after me:

Alexa, I give you this ring…

As a symbol of my love…

As I give to you…

All that I am…

And accept from from you…

All that you are…

Alexa please place your ring on Corey’s left hand & repeat after me:

Marriage gives permanence & structure to a couple’s love. It’s a way to tell one another that no matter how much you snore or how much you spent while out shopping at the mall, we are in this together. Marriage is telling the person you love that you are not going anywhere & that’s a powerful commitment for two people to make to one another.

A marriage must be built on the foundation of this commitment. In marriage the “little things” are the big things. It is never being too old to hold hands. It’s remembering to say, “I love you” at least once a day. It is never going to sleep angry. It is standing together and facing the world. It is speaking words of appreciation, & demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways. It is having the capacity to forgive & forget. It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow. It is the common search for the good & the beautiful. It is not about marrying right partner---it is being the right partner.

Alexa & Corey:

May your life together be be blessed with prosperity & good health.

May you always share open & honest communication between each other.

May you respect each other’s individual talents & gifts & give full support to each other’s professional & personal pursuits.

May you cherish the home & family you will create together.

May the years to come be filled with moments to celebrate & renew your love.

May your love be a life-long source of excitement, contentment, affection, respect and devotion for one another.

And, most importantly: may you never, ever forget what made you fall in love with each other in the first place.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Alexa & Corey, you have consented together in wedlock, have pledged your commitment to each other, before your family and friends, & have

declared the same by the giving & receiving of rings. Therefore, in accordance to the power vested in me by the American Marriage Ministries & the state of Maine, I hereby pronounce you husband & wife.

Congratulations!

Corey, you may now kiss your lovely bride.

Ladies & gentlemen, it is my great honor & privilege to introduce to you, for the very first time, Mr. & Mrs. Alexa & Corey Christie.
