Your Wedding Vows

________________, we are here to celebrate your marriage. This day you have chosen to affirm your love for each other with spoken words, with prayer, with the sharing of symbols,
And most of all with the up lifting of the name of our lord and saviour jesus christ.
(Verse By The Sea):

Marriage is a commitment to life... To the best that two people can find and bring out of each other. It offers opportunities for sharing and growth no other human relationship can equal, a physical, and emotional joining that is promised for a lifetime.
Within the circle of its love, marriage encompasses all of life's most important relationships. A wife and a husband are each other's best friend, confidant, lover, teacher, and listener. There may come times when one partner is heartbroken or ailing, and the love of the other brings healing and stedfastness to a sturdy foundation that allows the marriage covenant to be established.
Marriage deepens and enriches every facet of life. Happiness is fuller, memories are fresher; commitment is stronger.
Marriage understands and forgives the mistakes life is unable to avoid. It encourages and nurtures new life, new experiences; and new ways of expressing love through the seasons of life.
When two people pledge to love and care for each other in marriage, they create a spirit unique to themselves, which binds them closer than any spoken or written words. Marriage is a promise, made in the hearts of two people who love each other, which takes a lifetime to fulfill.

(Sharing Of Leis):

For those of us who call Hawaii home, the flower lei is a symbol of love for us, it is also a symbol of things fragile and Temporal. A flower lei will last for only a day or two and then it is gone. Our lives are like the lei within the span of eternity. We are here in this life for only a brief moment, therefore live with tender consideration for each; love one another; and your marriage will last. May the leis you now offer each other be recognized for the earnestness of your love for one another.

(Prayer Of Invocation):

As you have chosen to affirm your love for each other by committing your lives together, the foundation that has been laid down for you to build your relationship upon; is based on the holy scriptures.
(scripture reading): 1 Corintrinans 13:4-7,13 (living bible)
It is written, 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 in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails... And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

(Declaration Of Intention):

_______, do you wish for _______, to be your wife? If so, please say, "i do."
_______, do you wish for _______, to be your husband?
If so, please say, "i do."
________________, do you promise to let your love for each other grow? As it will, as it must; so that in the years to come you will renew your acceptance, your understanding; and your
trust of one another? If so, please say, "We promise."
