Heidi Marie Greeley And George Joseph Scott’s Wedding Wedding Ceremony Script

Family and Friends,

Welcome, and thank you all for joining us for this joyous occasion. I am Linda, the groom's aunt. Together, we are gathered to witness a truly special ceremony, the union of Joe and Heidi. Let me pause right here for a minute and explain one thing. Some of you may know the groom as George. But in our family, there were up to four George's in attendance at any family gathering. That didn't include two great grandpa George's, who were already deceased when the groom was born. That many George's made for a pretty confusing time so to avoid confusion, we gave the George's nicknames. Luckily, we call the groom by his middle name, Joe or Joey. I promise that when we get to the legal part of the ceremony, though, I will respectfully refer to the groom by his given name, George.

Joe and Heidi, today we celebrate the power of your love and the strength of your bond. Before we begin, take a moment to look around at the many friendly faces before you. So much preparation and planning went into this day. And now it is here, your wedding day. Know that all of these people are here to offer you love, support and encouragement as you embark on this incredible journey of life together. Remember that word, TOGETHER, because it is the theme of a good relationship and of the ceremony today.

Who gives this Bride to be married?

As the Bible reminds us, "Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falls; for he has no other to help him up."

The beautiful love story of Heidi and Joe coming TOGETHER goes something like this:

Joe and Heidi met March 1, 2016. They were brought TOGETHER by a mutual friend, XXXXX. XXXXX and Heidi were roommates. XXXX mentioned to Joe that he should meet Heidi because Heidi was kind of seeing someone else, and that someone else was not the guy for her. On March 1, 2016, XXXX got four tickets to the MN Wild Hockey Game at the Xcel Energy Center. XXXX invited Joe, her friend Tom and guess who, Heidi. Joe said when he met Heidi for the first time he thought she was "kind of cute" and he wanted to get to know her better. He made sure that when they got to the Xcel Center, that he going to be seated next to Heidi. Heidi, however, told me that it was her who finagled the seating arrangement because she thought Joe was "kind of cute", too. Anyway, prior to going on that first date, if you will, Joe had learned from XXXX that Heidi liked pickles, I mean, she really had a love of pickles. Wanting to impress Heidi, Joe set out on a mission at the Xcel Energy Center that day to find the biggest pickle that he could. He told me that he walked around for 20 minutes, but all he could find were some pickle slices at a condiment stand. Not one to give up, Joe continued on and talked to a guy at a grilled hamburger kiosk. This kiosk had unsliced pickles, still in the jar and Joe said they were pretty good sized pickles. He asked the vendor if he could buy one and the guy looked at him pretty weird but sold him the pickle. When he got back with the pickle in one of those paper bowl serving trays, he presented it to Heidi and he said he could tell that he won her over!

Somewhere on that first day that they met, Joe asked Heidi what her idea of a perfect date would be. She said that no other guy had ever asked her that. She said that she knew right there, that day, that Joe was special...not "special", but a gentleman and a good guy! She said that she was not ready for that perfect date question so she gave the clique answer of "dinner and movie". But, after thinking about it a bit, she said, "no wait, I would like to go to the ocean". Joe called her a short time after that and asked her to go out on a date. He brought her to the Mall of America to Underwater World. He said he couldn't give her the real ocean but he could give her something close. It was there that he learned of her love of sharks, her favorite animal. After Underwater World, Joe and Heidi dined at the Cadillac Ranch, also at the MOA. On the way home, one of them realized that they hadn't had dessert. Heidi said she could go for something chocolate. Joe pulled into a Holiday Gas station where he came out with one of every chocolate candy bar that they had, about $30 worth. How is that for listening and kindness?

During their 1st year together, Joe said that he came to realize how truly special Heidi was. Joe had back problems and was in the hospital and on bed rest for almost nine months of their FIRST year together. Rather than running for the hills, Heidi spent all of her free time at the hospital, including spending nights there. Heidi provided many of Joe's nursing services including helping him with some pretty intense toileting problems, of which I will spare you the details. Suffice it to say that Heidi went above and beyond the call of duty and Joe recognized her commitment to being there for him, TOGETHER.

Fast forward to July 2, 2017. Joe and Heidi were on their first night of a Carribean cruise. Joe had invited many family members on the cruise, including his parents, Heidi's parents and some of their siblings. Friends told Heidi that they were sure that Joe was going to propose to her. Heidi told Joe that if he was going to propose, that she didn't want him to propose on his birthday, which was July 2. He assured her he wasn't going to propose. Heidi wanted that day to be about Joe. She had ordered him a birthday cake from the ship's kitchen and had asked the maître de if she could get 24 candles for the cake. The maître de seemed very perturbed with Heidi and asked to talk with Joe alone. Heidi said she figured out why the maître de was angry because fire is the number one danger on a ship in the middle of the ocean. However, she thought the maître de was taking this too far. As she sat and waited for Joe to return, she said she was getting angry. To make matters worse, the maître de returned and began handing out Joe's cake. When he got to Heidi he apologized and said that he had miscounted and he didn't cut the cake small enough. He had run out of cake and didn't have a piece for her. Heidi was getting angrier. The maître de said he would find a piece for her. She said she was looking down and sulking when suddenly a piece of cake appeared before her. There was something glinting on the cake. She thought it was frosting but then looked at Joe and he was on one knee before her. Heidi said he kneeled there for "like 20 minutes" before speaking and asking her to marry him. She said she thinks he was trying to decide whether he really wanted to ask her or not! Heidi said yes but later said "of all days....your birthday". She assured me that she didn't slug him. Joe said he knew if he waited one more night, as he had planned, that one of the people along with them would tell Heidi so he did it the first night.

So here we are today, TOGETHER and getting married...making it legal. You're both here and ready to get married, knowing full well, Heidi, that Joe squeezing the toothpaste tube in the middle and not DRYING his toothbrush after use drives you nuts and Joe, knowing that the bathroom sink that is covered with makeup, hair, and more combs than any one person could ever possibly need will probably not change. But you are here, and so we will proceed.

Wedding vows are not a declaration of present love but a mutually binding promise of future love. A wedding should not be primarily a celebration of how loving you feel now—that can safely be assumed. Rather, in a wedding you stand up before God and your family and you promise to be loving, faithful, and true to the other person in the future.

Heidi Marie Greeley and George Joseph Scott will now share their vows.

*(Vows)*

Do you Heidi Marie Greeley take this man George Joseph Scott to be your lawfully wedded partner, to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, in good times and bad, for richer or poorer, keeping yourself unto him for as long as you both shall live?

*(Wait for Confirmation)*

Do you George Joseph Scott take this woman Heidi Marie Greeley to be your lawfully wedded partner, to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, in good times and bad, for richer or poorer, keeping yourself unto her for as long as you both shall live?

*(Wait for Confirmation)*

Heidi Marie Greeley and George Joseph Scott will now exchange rings as a symbol of their love and commitment.

*(Ring Exchange)*

The wedding ring is a symbol of the unending power of love between two people. Its circular shape has no beginning and no end, representing a boundless connection. The rings should be worn proudly as a symbol of the commitment between you both. Even when you find yourselves apart, your rings will provide a powerful reminder of the eternal love you share.

Please repeat after me:

Heidi:

With this ring, I Heidi, commit my love to you, George, for all time, giving you all that I am and all that I will be. Please accept this ring as a symbol of my love.

George:

With this ring, I George, commit my love to you, Heidi, for all time, giving you all that I am and all that I will be. Please accept this ring as a symbol of my love.

Family and friends, by the power vested in me by the American Marriage Ministries and by the great state of Minnesota, I now pronounce George and Heidi to be TOGETHER as husband and wife. Let us celebrate their union.

Joe, you may now kiss the Bride.

Joe and Heidi, may you enjoy a lifetime of love together. May you have many special times with family and friends and continue to build special memories TOGETHER. And always remember, a happy marriage depends on this one special phrase, "YES DEAR".

I hope this ceremony provided you with wonderful memories to look back on and to treasure for the rest of your days.

Now, lets get this party started. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present, for the first time, Mr and Mrs. George and Heidi Scott.
