The following scripts samples are only the opening words of the ceremony.  These samples are meant to give you a sense of this tone of ceremony.   The additional parts of the ceremony are included in the script draft after your booking.  I also offer a variety of alternative materials to help edit the script to your heart’s desire.

Short & Sweet I


We are here today to celebrate the miracle of love.  (Groom) and (Bride) have found that miracle in each other and now desire to share their love all the days of the  lives.

When a Man and a Woman Are in Love  His life lies within hers and her life lies within his.

Each strives for independent goals, but they also work together to achieve their dreams.  

They will give to one another what they need to survive and help fulfill each other’s wants.  

They will turn one another’s disappointment into satisfaction.  

They will turn one another’s frustration into contentment.  

They will work as a mirror, reflecting to each other their strengths and weaknesses.  

They will work together to alleviate the emotional walls that may separate them.  

They will work together to build a better understanding of one another....

Short & Sweet II - Contemporary Civil

Love is the reason we are here. In marriage we not only say, “I love you today”, but also, “I promise to love you for all of our tomorrows.

(Groom) & (Bride), in the days ahead of you there will be stormy times and good times, times of conflict and times of joy. I ask you to remember this advice.

Never go to bed angry.

Let your love be stronger than your anger.

Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend than to break.

Believe the best of your beloved, rather than the worst.

Confide in your partner and ask for help when you need it.

Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship.

Give your spouse the same courtesies and kindnesses you bestow on your friends. 

Say “I love you” every day.

Short & Sweet III - Religious

A wedding is the celebration of the miracle of love. James Essex and Roberta Rizzi, today, in the presence of God, we celebrate this miracles in your lives.

Hear are some wonderful words that define the true meaning of love. 

Love is patient and kind; 

Love is not jealous or boastful;

Love is not arrogant or rude; 

Love does not insist on its own way;

Love does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices with the right.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. 

Love never fails.

Learning to love each other and to live together in harmony is one of the greatest challenges of marriage. Marriage is not to be entered into lightly, and we are to hold it in high honor at all times. Running a holiday sale or weekly special? Definitely promote it here to get customers excited about getting a sweet deal.
