Celebration of Love & Happiness

The Wedding of Hayley Burns & Thomas Carroll

Officiated by Carolyn Buenger Mott at Capital Room in Fayetteville, North Carolina on September 21st, 2019.


"This was a fun, heartfelt celebration of the love and happiness Hayley and Thomas share. These best friends wanted a mostly non-traditional celebration, which they had, starting with the bride and father dancing down the aisle to rock music. As a friend of the family, I was deeply honored to be asked to officiate this wedding."

Hayley Burns And Thomas Carroll’s Wedding Wedding Ceremony Script

First Corinthians, 13:4-5

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 knows no bounds.

We are gathered here today in celebration of love and happiness; and to witness the union of two hearts in the marriage of Hayley Burns to Thomas Carroll

Unity Sand Ceremony

Thomas and Hayley, today you are here to join your lives together. These two separate vases of sand symbolize your separate lives before you found each other. They symbolize your separate friends, family, and choices. Today, both of you will seal your bond by blending these two individual vases together. Once the sand is blended together, it cannot be separated. Just as the sand cannot be separated, your love can never be separated. By blending these sands together, we are recognizing the importance of blending two families together. May you always honor and protect your family.

Declaration of Intent

Do you, Hayley, take Thomas to be your lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, in good times and bad, for richer or poorer, keeping yourself unto him, for so long as you both shall live?

I do

Do you, Thomas, take Hayley to be your lawfully wedded wife, to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, in good times and bad, for richer or poorer, keeping yourself unto her, for so long as you both shall live?

Ring Exchange

Thomas and Hayley will now exchange rings as a symbol of their never ending love and fidelity.


By the authority vested in me by American Marriage Ministries and the State of North Carolina, I now pronounce you married! You may now kiss!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, the Carrolls!
