Christian Ceremony

(Note: This traditional and romantic, non-denominational Christian ceremony is perfect for your formal wedding.) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Dearly   beloved,   we   are   gathered   together   here   this   evening   in   the   sight   of   God,   and   in   the   face   of this   company,   to   join   together   this   Man   and   this   Woman   in   holy   Matrimony;   an   honorable   estate, instituted   by   God,   and   therefore   is   not   to   be   entered   into   unadvisedly   or   lightly;   but   reverently, discreetly,   advisedly,   soberly,   and   in   the   fear   of   God.   Into   this   holy   estate   these   two   persons   come now to be joined. If   any   man   can   show   just   cause,   why   they   may   not   lawfully   be   joined   together,   let   him   now   speak, or forever hold his peace. God,   for   the   joy   of   this   occasion   we   thank   you.   For   the   significance   of   this   wedding   day   we   thank you.   For   this   important   moment   in   an   ever-growing   relationship   we   thank   you.   For   your   presence here   and   now   and   for   your   presence   at   all   times,   we   thank   you.   In   Christ’s   holy   name   we   pray. Amen. 1   CORINTHIANS   13:4-8a   -   Love   is   patient   and   kind;   love   is   not   jealous   or   boastful;   it   is   not   arrogant or   rude.   Love   does   not   insist   on   its   own   way;   it   is   not   irritable   or   resentful;   it   does   not   rejoice   at wrong,   but   rejoices   in   the   right.   Love   bears   all   things,   believes   all   things,   hopes   all   things,   and endures all things. Love never ends. (Groom)   and   (Bride),   today   you   enter   as   individuals,   but   you   will   leave   here   as   husband   and   wife, blending   your   lives,   expanding   your   family   ties,   and   embarking   upon   the   grandest   adventure   of life. The story of your life together is still yours to write. No   other   human   ties   are   more   tender   and   no   other   vows   more   important   than   those   you   are about   to   take.   Both   of   you   come   to   this   day   with   the   deep   realization   that   the   contract   of   marriage is sacred as are all of its obligations and responsibilities. (Groom)   and   (Bride)   do   you   come   before   me   as   free   persons   –   is   it   your   desire   to   live   the   rest   of your days as husband and wife – if so say it is. Happiness   in   marriage   is   not   something   that   just   happens.      A   good   marriage   must   be   created.      In the   Art   of   Marriage,   the   little   things   are   the   big   things.      It   is   never   being   too   old   to   hold   hands.      It   is remembering   to   say,   “I   love   you”.   It   is   at   no   time   taking   the   other   for   granted;   the   courtship   should not   end   with   the   honeymoon,   it   should   continue   through   all   the   years.      It   is   having   a   mutual   sense of   values   and   common   objectives.      It   is   standing   together   facing   the   world.      It   is   forming   a   circle   of love   that   gathers   in   the   family.      It   is   doing   things   for   each   other,   not   in   the   attitude   of   duty   or sacrifice,   but   in   the   spirit   of   joy.      It   is   speaking   words   of   appreciation   and   demonstrating   gratitude in   thoughtful   ways.      It   is   not   expecting   the   husband   to   wear   a   halo   or   the   wife   to   have   wings   of   an angel.        It    is    not    looking    for    perfection    in    each    other.        It    is    cultivating    flexibility,    patience, understanding   and   a   sense   of   humor.      It   is   having   the   capacity   to   forgive   and   forget.      It   is   giving each   other   an   atmosphere   in   which   each   can   grow.      It   is   establishing   a   relationship   in   which   the independence    is    equal,    dependence    is    mutual    and    the    obligation    is    reciprocal.    It    is    not    only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner. (Groom),   wilt   thou   have   this   woman   to   be   thy   wedded   wife,   to   live   together   after   God's   ordinance in   the   holy   estate   of   Matrimony?   Wilt   thou   love   her,   comfort   her,   honor,   and   keep   her   in   sickness and in health; and, forsaking all others, keep thee only unto her, so long as ye both shall live? (Bride),   wilt   thou   have   this   man   to   thy   wedded   husband,   to   live   together   after   God's   ordinance   in the   holy   estate   of   Matrimony?   Wilt   thou   love   him,   comfort   him,   honor,   and   keep   him   in   sickness and in health; and, forsaking all others, keep thee only unto him, so long as ye both shall live? “Love builds up the broken wall and straightens the crooked path. Love keeps the stars in the firmament and imposes rhythm on the ocean tides. Each of us is created of it and I suspect each of us was created for it” - Maya Angelou As   an   expression   that   your   hearts   are   joined   together   in   love   will   you   please   face   each   other   and hold   hands,   so   you   may   feel   the   gift   that   you   are   to   one   another.   These   are   the   hands   of   your   best friend,   strong   and   full   of   love   for   you   that   are   holding   yours   on   your   wedding   day   as   you   promise to   love   each   other   today,   tomorrow,   and   forever.   These   are   the   hands   that   will   work   alongside yours   as   together   you   build   your   future.   These   are   the   hands   that   will   passionately   love   you   and cherish   you   through   the   years,   and   with   the   slightest   touch   will   comfort   you   like   no   other.   These are   the   hands   that   will   help   you   to   hold   your   unit   as   one.   And   lastly,   these   are   the   hands   that   even when    wrinkled    and    aged    will    still    be    reaching    for    yours,    still    giving    you    the    same    unspoken tenderness with just a touch.   Please repeat after me. I   (Groom)   take   thee   (Bride)   to   my   wedded   Wife,   to   have   and   to   hold   from   this   day   forward,   for better   for   worse,   for   richer   for   poorer,   in   sickness   and   in   health,   to   love   and   to   cherish,   till   death   us do part. I   (Bride)   take   thee   (Groom)   to   my   wedded   Husband,   to   have   and   to   hold   from   this   day   forward,   for better   for   worse,   for   richer   for   poorer,   in   sickness   and   in   health,   to   love   and   to   cherish,   till   death   us do part. Wedding    rings    are    made    precious    by    our    wearing    them.    Your    rings    say    that    even    in    your uniqueness   you   have   chosen   to   be   bound   together.   Let   these   rings   also   be   a   sign   that   love   has substance   as   well   as   a   soul,   a   present   as   well   as   a   past,   and   that,   despite   its   occasional   sorrows, love   is   a   circle   of   happiness,   wonder,   and   delight.   The   wedding   ring   has   no   beginning   and   no ending,   which   symbolizes   that   the   love   between   you   will   never   cease.   May   these   rings   remind   you always of the vows you have taken here today. Lord,   bless   these   rings.   We   pray   that   those   who   give   and   receive   them   may   abide   in   peace,   and continue in your favor until their life's end. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen. (Groom), please place your ring on (Bride)’s finger and repeat after me. Through this ring, I accept you as my wife, now and for all time. (Bride), please place your ring on (Groom)’s finger and repeat after me. Through this ring, I accept you as my husband, now and for all time. Let us pray. Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, forever. Amen. May   you   establish   a   home   of   warmth   and   understanding;   may   your   lives   be   filled   with   peace   and beauty;   may   you   always   exhibit   to   one   another   truth,   sympathy   and   love,   and   may   the   Lord   bless you   and   keep   you;   may   the   Lord   make   his   face   to   shine   upon   you   and   be   gracious   unto   you;   may the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace this day and forever more. Those whom God hath joined together let no man put asunder.   FORASMUCH   as   (Groom)   and   (Bride)   have   consented   together   in   holy   wedlock,   and   have   witnessed the   same   before   God   and   this   company,   and   thereto   have   given   and   pledged   their   troth,   each   to the   other,   and   have   declared   the   same   by   giving   and   receiving   a   ring,   and   by   joining   hands;   I pronounce that they are Man and Wife. (Groom), you may kiss your bride.
