Sample Wedding Ceremony with Poems

Here is a sample of a wedding ceremony using quotes from poems and bible:

New Civil Celebration with Poems

Welcome to this celebration.

We gathered together here with family and friends to celebrate
the love which BRIDE and GROOM have for each other, to give
recognition to their decision to become husband and wife and to travel through life together.

If any of you has anything to say that might change their minds…
the don‟t want to hear it !-- However, they do want to hear from you, your love and support as that is why you were invited here. To encourage them to begin their married life together even with its faults and travails as you know there are times of great joy.

So Bride and Groom , please focus your attention on each another, to become man and wife you must answer a question before these witnesses to affirm you want to be married by law.

Bride, "Do you take Groom to be your wedded husband, to share your
life together, living with him, in sickness and in health, in joy and in
sorrow, in hardship and in ease, to cherish and to love, from this forward?"

Groom, "Do you take Bride to be your wedded wife, to share your
life together, living with her, in sickness and in health, in joy and in
sorrow, in hardship and in ease, to cherish and to love, from this forward?"

Because it is love that brought us all here today. Before you exchange rings and vows, I‟d like to remind you what the Apostle Paul said about love:
If I speak in the tongues of men and ofangels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clangingcymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries andall knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but havenot love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrendermy body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it isnot 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 rejoiceswith the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, alwaysperseveres.

Tradition has you exchanging rings to mark you as married to one another.

Groom, as you place this ring on Brides hand, please repeat after me:

I take you -----to be 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.

Bride as you place this ring on Grooms hand, please repeat after me:

I take you ------to be 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.
NOW- Gibran on Marriage:

“You were joined together and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter yourdays.
And you shall be together in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other‟s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and make a joyous noise unto the Lord, butlet each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with thesame music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other‟s keeping.
For only the hand of life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other‟s shadow.”

You may now kiss as husband and wife..

Sketch Artist for Wedding

 Sara and Randy used a sketch artist rather then a photographer for their wedding. Arranged through Belle Sorie Wedding Planning. Merideth Reed contacted artist "Than" who arrived and began sketching guests milling around before the ceremony, then did the couple as they exchanged vows. A unique way to document the wedding. To get more great ideas for your wedding contact Belle Soriee Wedding Planning and Design.
