Dearly beloved, we are gathered here in the sight of God and in the presence of these witnesses, to join together this man and this woman in holy matrimony.  The Bible teaches that marriage is to be a permanent relationship of one man and one woman freely and totally committed to each other.  Our Lord declared that man shall leave his father and mother and cleave unto his wife in the building of a home, and the two shall become one flesh.

Who gives this woman in marriage?

I require and charge you both, as you stand in the presence of God, to remember that love and loyalty alone will avail as the foundation of a happy and enduring home.  No other human ties are more tender, no other vows are to be kept as sacred, and if steadfastly you endeavor to do the will of your heavenly father your life will be full of joy, and the home which you are establishing will abide in peace.

Marriage is to be based on love and commitment.  I’ll now share a quote from the bible regarding love, which should be descriptive of the love you have for each other.

1 Corinthians 13:3-8

Love is patient, love is kind, love envies no one, is never boastful, not conceited, nor is rude…never selfish, nor quick to take offense.  Love does not insist on its own way. Love keeps no score of wrongs, does not gloat over another’s failings, but delights in the good, the true, the beautiful. There is nothing love cannot face.  There is no limit to its faith, its home and its endurance. Love never fails.   And such should be the love you have for each other.

------PLEDGE ------

Please join right hands.

____________________in taking the woman/man whom you hold by the right hand to be your lawful and wedded wife, do you promise to love and cherish her, to honor and sustain her, in sickness and in health, in poverty as in wealth, in the good that may lighten your ways, in the bad that may darken your days, and to be true to her in all things as long as you both shall live?

I DO.

Repeat after me

I ___________________ take you, _______________to be my wedded wife/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, as long as we both shall live, according to God’s holy word. This is my solemn vow.

Ring Ceremony (Ask for rings)

The ring is a symbol of the love that you have for each other.  Its unending circle represents the eternal quality of your love. It serves as a ceaseless reminder of this hour and as a seal of the vows you take.

Repeat after me

As a pledge and in token of the vows between us made, with this ring I thee wed.  In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Closing

For as much as _________________and ___________have consented together in holy wedlock and have witnesses the same before god and this company, and thereto have pledged their faith, each to the other, confirming and sealing their vows by giving and receiving of rings,. I, therefore, by the authority of the laws of this state _______________do pronounce you husband and wife. What God hast joined together let no man put asunder.

Benediction

May the blessing of the Lord rest upon you and the home that you are establishing for all you days and years of your lives. Amen

You may kiss the bride.

I now present to you Mr. and Mrs. ____________________________

Greeting and Convocation

Welcome, we are gathered here on this beautiful Caribbean island to celebrate one of life’s greatest moments, the uniting of two hearts in marriage.  In the routine of ordinary life, the extraordinary has happened.  Bride and Groom met each other, fell in love and here to finalize it with their wedding today.  Romance is fun, but true love is something far more rare and important.  What we are celebrating here today is their desire to bind their love and each other together for life. Let us all take a deep breath as we take a second to appreciate the natural beauty around us, to feel the warmth of the sun, and to gaze at this beautiful view. 

The bond of marriage is the deepest, most precious, and enduring relationship on earth. Marriage is a life long commitment not to be entered into lightly, but reverently, seriously, and thoughtfully. 

Bride and groom may you both be granted the patience to listen, the capacity to understand, the compassion to give comfort, the joy to laugh, and to just be yourselves. May you both always have happiness, and ay you find it in making each other happy.  May you have everlasting love, and may you find it loving one another.  Let your marriage make a home where neither of you is ever lonely .  Let your marriage offer illumination and the nourishment of shared experiences.  May your union be strong enough to endure the difficult times, and to enjoy the happy times.  May life’s challenges not separate you; may you always be able to turn to each other.  

(Reading – Marriage is a Promise of Love by Edmond O’Neill

Marriage is a commitment to life – to the best that two people can find and bring out in 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 love marriage encompasses all of life’s most important relationships.  A wife and husband are each other’s best friend, confidant, lover, teacher, listener and counselor.  Marriage deepens and enriches every facet of life.  Happiness is fuller, memories are fresher, and 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 different 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, a potential, made in the hearts of two people who love, which takes a lifetime to fulfill.

------PLEDGES ------

______________ do you take ______________ to be your wife?  Do you promise to love her, honor her, comfort her and keep her in sickness and in health, for better or for worse,  for richer or for poorer, and  be faithful to her as long as you both shall live?

_____________ do you take _______________ to be your husband?  Do you promise to love him, honor him, comfort him and keep him in sickness and in health, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, and be faithful to him as long as you both shall live?

Vows

_________________ I take you to be my wife; To be no other than yourself; From this day forward you shall not walk alone.  My heart will be your shelter,

And my arms will be your home.  I promise to always be there, to share with you My laughter, and to be other to kiss away the tears; and to give you all the love That is in my heart, as long as we both shall live.

________________ I take you to be my husband; to be no other than yourself; From this day forward you shall not walk alone.  My heart will be your shelter, And my arms will be your home.  I promise to always be there, to share with you My laughter, and to be there to kiss away the tears; and to give you all the love That is in my heart, as long as we both shall live. 

Marriage Means Being In Love for the Rest of your Life – Chris Ardis

Marriage is walking hand in hand together.  It’s laughing with other about silly little things, and learning to discuss the big things with care and tenderness.  In marriage, love is trust, honesty, and openness.  It’s getting over disappointments and hurts, knowing that these are present in all relationships.  It’s the realization that there is no one else in this world that you’d rather be with than the one you’re married to.  It’s thinking of new things to do together; it’s growing old together.  Marriage is being in love for the rest of your life. 

Exchange of Rings

The ring is a symbol of the commitment you are making to each other.  Your rings are a sacred circle.  A circle is a symbol of wholeness, peace and unity.  As circles, your rings have no beginning and no ending. They are the symbols of the growing relationship you have come here to celebrate and confirm.  May you wear with the blessing that you have a partner in life, and that you are each other’s life’s partner.  These rings seal your vow of marriage to each other.  As a sign of your love and faithfulness to each other, please place the ring on each other’s finger and repeat after me:

________________ with this ring, I give you my heart and undying love.  I have no greater gift to share.  I feel so honored to call you my wife, and blessed to call you mine.  When you look at this ring, may you be reminded that you are deeply loved; and may you never feel alone, because I will always be at your side.  I love you with all that I am – for everything that you are.  With this ring, I Thee Wed.

________________ with this ring, I give you my heart and undying love.  I have no greater gift to share   I feel so honored to call you my husband, and blessed to call you mine.  When you look at this ring, may you be reminded that you are deeply loved; and may you never be alone, because I will always be at your side.  I love you with all that I am am – for everything that you are.  With this ring, I Thee Wed.

Bride and Groom, I would ask that you both give the highest propriety to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness your marriage deserves.  When frustration and difficulty assail your marriage – as they do to every relationship from time to time – focus on the love that brought you here today.  This way when clouds of trouble darken the sun in your lives, you can remember that the sun is still there.

Having heard the vows you have just made to each other, witnessed by these loved ones present, by the power vested in me by the Superior Court of the United States Virgin Islands,  I now pronounce you husband and wife.

Sir, you may now kiss your bride!

Ladies and gentlemen I now present to you for the first time as husband and wife, Mr, & Mrs. ________
