Jim Hsieh And Courtney Foley’s Wedding Wedding Ceremony Script

Brian says intro:

"Welcome Dearly Beloved and Honored Guests,"

"We are gathered together here to join Courtney Foley and Jim Hsieh in the union of marriage."

"Courtney and Jim have asked that we have a moment of silence for those who cannot join us here today. Lets bow our heads in remembrance." (1 minute)

"We now have a reading of 'Blessing of the Hands' read by Jim's brother Pat Hsieh

“These are the hands of your partner,

young and strong and full of love,

holding your hands as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever.

These are the hands that will work alongside yours as together you build your future.

These are the hands that will hold you and comfort you in grief and uncertainty.

These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes, tears of sorrow and joy.

These are the hands that will hold your family as one.

These are the hands that will give you strength.

And these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.”

Pat will come up to the Podium and read then he returns to her place.

"And a reading of 'Wild Awake' by Hilary T. Smith read by Courntey’s aunt Neat Wilke

“People are like cities: We all have alleys and gardens and secret rooftops and places where daisies sprout between the sidewalk cracks, but most of the time all we let each other see is is a postcard glimpse of a skyline or a polished square.

Love lets you find those hidden places in another person, even the ones they didn't know were there, even the ones they wouldn't have thought to call beautiful themselves.”

Pat will come up to the Podium and read then she returns to her place.

Brian will ring a bell 4x then will perform a brief ceremony for Courtney and Jim.

At the end he says:

"This contract is not to be entered into lightly but thoughtfully, seriously, and with a deep realization of all the obligations and accountabilities of a marriage. Please remember that love, openness, honesty, vulnerability, and deep caring are the foundations of a happy and enduring life together."

"Courtney and Jim have prepared stories they'll read aloud to one another followed by their vows.
