Love is the Reason

~Welcome~

Love is the reason we are here today on this beautiful _____________________.

In marriage we not only say “I love you today!” But also “I promise to love you for all of your tomorrows.”

 

Party 1and Party 2 in the days ahead of you, there will be stormy times, good times and times of joy. I ask you to remember today and these words-

Love is never going to bed angry

Let your love be stronger than your anger

Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend than it is to break.

Believe the best of your beloved rather than the worst.

Confide in your partner and ask for help when you need it.

Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship.

Give your spouse the same courtesies and kindnesses you bestow on your friends.

Say I love you every day.

 

~Rings~

Party 1 and Party 2 I remind you today that marriage is a precious gift, a lifetime commitment and a challenge to love one another more completely each and every day.

With this understanding, do you Party 1 take Party 2 to be your wedded husband/wife to live together in marriage? Do you promise to love him/her comfort him/her, honor and keep him/her for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and health, forsaking all others and to faithful only to him/her so long as you both shall live?

 

Party 1

I do

 

Do you Party 2 to be your wedded husband/wife to live together in marriage?

~Rings~

Your rings are an unbroken, never ending circle, that is a symbol of committed, unending love.

Party 1 as you place this ring on Party 2’s finger please repeat after me-

This ring, a gift for you, symbolizes my desire that you be my husband/wife from this day forward.

As this ring has no end and neither shall my love for you.

Party 2 as you place this ring on Party 1’s finger please repeat after me-

This ring, a gift for you, symbolizes my desire that you be my husband/wife from this day forward.

As this ring has no end and neither shall my love for you.

 

These words spoken by e.e.cummings sums up why you are here today.

I carry my heart with me

(I carry it in my heart)

I am never without it

(Anywhere I go, you go, my dear)

And whatever is done only by me

(Is your doing, my darling)

I fear no fate

(for you are my fate, my sweet)

I want no world

(for beautify you are my world, my true)

And it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant

And whatever a sun will always sing is you

Here is the deepest secret nobody knows

Here is the root of the root and the bub of the husband they sky of the sky of a tree called life, which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide.

This is the wonder that’s keeping the starts apart.

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart.)

 

 

 

~Blessing~

Party 1 and Party 2, in your journey of life together, remind yourselves often of the love that brought you together. Give the highest priority to your love When challenges come, remember to focus on what is right between you. In this way, you can ride out the storms. And when clouds hide the sun in your lives- remember, even if you lose sight of it for a moment, the sun is always there.

Now you feel no rain as you are a shelter to each other. Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to each other. There is no more loneness for you as you will be companions to each other. Now you are two persons standing in front of me, but you have three lives in front of you. Party 1’s life, Party ’s live and your lives together.

As you  Party 1 and you Party 2 have consented together, pledged your vows to each other, and have exchanged rings as tokens of your love and commitment to each there. With accordance with the great state of Colorado, and with great joy, I pronounce you now happily married!

You may kiss!
