Dear David and Sandy,
Just want to
THANK YOU for making our day so perfect! Everything was just how we had hoped it would be, and better than we expected. You are so easygoing and personable and we felt completely comfortable with you. You have a very calming, gentle way about you. Obviously you have found the right profession. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone requiring your services.
Thanks again for a fabulous ceremony,

SAMPLE OF A WEDDING CEREMONY
A wedding is that occasion when a man and woman publicly proclaim their love and declare their commitment to one another. By its very nature it is both a solemn and a happy event. For some of you gathered here, this ceremony will prompt a flood of personal memories, for others of you it will set in motion dreams and aspirations. For all of us it will be a sharing in a most intimate and love-filled moment in the lives of Stephen and Christi.
Prayer (A simple prayer asking God’s blessing on your marriage.)
Parents Blessing on Marriage
Would the parents of the Stephen & Christi, like to add their blessing to this union?
Response: We do. (Standing)
Introduction to Pledge
Stephen Bailey and Christi Holmes, by your presence here you are already making public your intention to marry. So that your integrity of purpose may be made clear to those of us present, would you each respond to these questions:
Stephen/Christi, do you take Christi/Stephen, to be your wife/husband? Will you love (her/him), comfort (her/him), honour and cherish (her/him), in sickness and in health, in sorrow and in joy? Do you pledge to establish and maintain honest, open and loving communication between yourself and Christi/Stephen ? And forsaking all others, do you promise to remain faithful to her/him, as long as you both shall live?
Answer: I do.
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. There are three things that will endure, faith, hope and love and the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13: 4-7,13)
A brief comment is made to the couple about loving one another and their commitment to each other as they begin their lives together as husband and wife.
I, Stephen/Christi, take you, Christi/Stephen, to be my wife/husband, secure in the knowledge that you will be my constant friend, my partner in life, and my one true love. I promise to love you without reservation; to support you in good times and bad, in sickness and health; to encourage you to achieve your goals, to laugh with you and cry with you; to grow with you in mind, heart and spirit; to always be open and honest with you; and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live.
Exchange of Rings
Wedding rings are outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual truths. Being one unbroken circle, they symbolize unending love, and as they are worn, they symbolize to others your union in marriage. May they be a constant reminder of this sacred moment when you pledged yourselves to each other.
I give you this ring that you may wear it as the symbol of the vows we have taken and of the covenant we have made this day.
In that you Stephen & Christi have made these solemn promises of marriage before God and these witnesses, I now pronounce you husband and wife.
You may now seal your vows with a kiss.
Signing of the Register (Special Music)
Presentation of the Bride and Groom
It is my privilege and pleasure to present to you Mr. & Mrs. Stephen & Christi Bailey.
