Chastity Austin And Brett Mac Dougall’s Wedding Wedding Ceremony Script

Dearly Beloved and Honored Guests,

We are gathered together on this day to witness and celebrate the marriage of Brett and Chastity. We come together not to mark the start of a relationship, but to acknowledge and strengthen a bond that already exists.

This contract is not to be entered into lightly but thoughtfully and seriously, and with a deep realization of its obligations and responsibilities. Please remember that love, loyalty, and understanding are the foundations of a happy and enduring home.

PRAYER:

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

Scripture Reading:

Before we start, I would like to read a beautiful piece of scripture from 1st Corinthians. 13 4-7 In his letter to the Corinthians, Paul wrote: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

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

[We do]

VOWS:

Brett, please repeat after me.

I Brett, take you Chastity__ to be my lawfully wedded wife

I give to you in the presence of God and these witnesses

My promise to stay by your side,

In sickness and in health,___ in joy and in sorrow,

through the good times and the bad.

I promise to cherish you for as long as we both shall live

Chastity, please repeat after me

I, Chastity, take you Brett,___ to be my lawfully wedded husband

I give to you in the presence of God and these witnesses

My promise to stay by your side,

In sickness and in health,___ in joy and in sorrow,

through the good times and the bad.

I promise to cherish you for as long as we both shall live

Having this love in your hearts, you have chosen to seal your vows by exchanging rings.

*(Ring Exchange)*

Let us pray. Lord, bless the giving and receiving of these rings. May Brett and Chastity be forever true to this union. May the seamless circle of these rings become the symbol of their endless love and serve to remind them of the holy covenant they have entered into today. Amen

Brett, take this ring, place it on Chastity's left hand and repeat after me.

I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and faithfulness to you.

Chastity, take this ring, place it on Brett's left hand and repeat after me.

I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and faithfulness to you.

Today you have pledged yourselves to a lifetime of caring for one another. May this be a commitment made in love, kept in faith, lived in hope and eternally renewed. As you stand before us, it is our hope that you will go through life loving, trusting, and caring for one another, completely and forever.

Having pledged their fidelity to one another, to love, honor and cherish one another in the presence of this gathering and by the authority vested in me by the American Marriage Ministries and the State of New York I now pronounce you husband and wife!

YOU MAY KISS THE BRIDE!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my honor to be the first to introduce you to: Mr. and Mrs. Brett and Chastity MacDougall.
