Corinthians 13: 4-8 
Our Lord Almighty teaches us through the words of Saint Paul, "love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, 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.
Most of all, love never fails.

Corinthians 13 Modern Version
Love is tolerant, love is nice.
It is not demanding. Love is not needy,
it is not hard, it is not dull,
it does not outlast romance,
it is not faithful, it does not forgive when wronged,
it does not challenge or correct
but lets the beloved be comfortable.
Love improves all things, tolerates many things,
ignores some things, endures nothing.

A Prayer of Blessing

Dear heavenly Father , our hearts are filled with great happiness on Name and Name's wedding day, as they come before You pledging their hearts and lives to one another. Grant that they may be ever true and loving, living together in such a way as to never bring shame or heartbreak into their marriage. Temper their hearts with kindness and understanding, rid them of all pretense of jealousy. Help them to remember to be each other's sweetheart, helpmate, friend and guide, so that together they may meet the cares and problems of life more bravely. And with the passage of time, may the home they are creating today, truly be a place of love and harmony, where your spirit is ever present.
Bless this union we pray, and walk beside Name  and Name throughout all their lives together. We ask these things in Jesus name.

We pray that you guide Name  and Name  as parents to raise and teach Name(s) with love and respect; and that you protect this new family and keep them always in your care...

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven; hallowed be thy name; 
thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it in heaven; 
give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, 
but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever.
Amen.

Their leaves will not fall or wither.
Everything they do will succeed.
