While I have time, I am working on the ceremony script as well. I feel like I've been productive!

I think we've decided to do a pre wedding site visit August 6-9! I think it will make me feel better seeing the place.

I don't think I am going to do a program since I only have my sister and FI's brother in the bridal party. Instead, with the welcome gifts in the room, I am leaving an itenerary of the weekend wedding events.
We are here today to participate in a most joyous occasion; to celebrate one of the greatest moments in life, by acknowledging the wedding of Angie and Blake.
This beautiful setting should remind us that, like the ocean, human life is an ebb and flow- The life of the spirit and emotions- moves in cycles. To be in a relationship does not guarantee an eternal summer. To make a sincere and honest commitment does not promise, an end to all struggle. What a good relationship does offer, much like this ocean, is the opportunity for renewal. It recognizes the abiding, shared hope that after every fall and winter, spring and summer will come again.
On behalf of Angie and Blake, I welcome you and thank you all for gathering here on this beautiful day to witness their marriage ceremony. The fact that you all have travelled such a great distance to be here today is a testament to the amazing amount of love and support they have. Many of you have given them much happiness, love, warmth, and guidance through the various stages of their lives. They would like to sincerely thank you all for being here to celebrate their big day. A special and respectful acknowledgement must also be made to those friends and family members who were unable to attend, or have passed on, but whose spirit remains alive and strong in all our hearts.
I have also been asked by Angie and Blake to thank their parents for the wonderful lives they have given them, for the hard work and guidance they have provided, for their everlasting love, support, and encouragement. It is from them that they have learned the true meaning of love, friendship and family.
The marriage between Angie and Blake does not mark the beginning of a new relationship; rather, it is an acknowledgement and celebration, of a relationship that has been flourishing for a long time.
Marriage has been described as living in love with your best friend. Love is one of the few constants in the universe. It is reality, affinity, and communication. Only love is capable of joining living beings by their deepest essence, uniting, completing, and fulfilling them.
You have chosen to walk through life together. There is no truer statement of love. The choice was not made by any one moment, but by being together you grew to realize that you belonged together and that you fulfilled each otherâ€™s needs. You have come to thrive upon each otherâ€™s presence, loyalty and wisdom. The foundation of your love is profound friendship. A friendship you have nurtured until at last you realized that you wanted to be together always. The commitment you make today will be the foundation on which you will build your life together.
I would like to invite Holly Cameron, sister of the groom, to share one of the best descriptions of love written by Paul in his letter to the Corinthians:
Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited, it is never rude or selfish, it does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's faults, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope. It is always ready to endure whatever comes because true love does not come to an end.
Angie and Blake would you please face each other and join your hands.
Bride and Groom will share personal vows they have written.
Angie and Blake, your rings are intimately associated with your intent to honor and treasure the vows you have made today. By exchanging rings, resolve to live your vows and not to let them drift in shallow promises. Believe and trust that the words you have spoken have the capacity to create the marriage, family and life of your dreams, and that the rings you exchange will have the power to return you to your vows.
Blake as you place this ring on Angieâ€™s finger please repeat after meâ€¦
Angie, I give you this ring, as a sign of our marriage, and a lasting reminder, of the vows made between us today. I give you this ring, as a reminder that I will love, honor, and cherish you, in all times, in all places, and in all ways, forever.
Angie, if you accept please say I doâ€¦
Angie as you place this ring on Blakeâ€™s finger, please repeat after meâ€¦
Blake, I to give you this ring, as a sign of our marriage, and a lasting reminder, of the vows made between us today. I give you this ring, as a reminder that I will love, honor, and cherish you, in all times, in all places, and in all ways, forever.
Blake, if you except, please say â€œI Doâ€.
Angie and Blake, the vows you have just taken, pledging your love to each other, mean far more than mere words ever can. And may you always put these vows above the things that make life smaller.
Angie and Blake, remember to treat both yourself and each other with respect, and remind yourselves often of what brought you together. Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness that your connection deserves. When frustration, difficulty or fear assail your relationship â€“ as they threatened all relationships at one time or another â€“ remember to focus on what is right between you. In this way, you can ride out the times when clouds hide the face of the sun in your lives â€“ remembering that even if you lose sight of it for a moment, the sun is still there.
Give to one another new experiences of joy. Challenge one another so that you may grow. May the love you hold for each other, now sealed in marriage, continue to mature with the passing years. May you never take each other for granted, but always experience the wonder of your union. Be slow to anger, quick to forgive, leaving no tracks of resentment behind each day.
We who are present today, hope that the inspiration of this moment will never be forgotten. May all your days and years to come be filled with vision, joy and passion. May the love you now share continue to grow, and may the happiness you bring to each other be a continuing part of your life together. May you continue to laugh often and enjoy each other every day, steadfast in hope and confidence, believing in yourself and believing in each other. May your love be a sanctuary and a source from which you draw strength to live your lives with enthusiasm and imagination. May the people you touch in your lifetime know how much you love and care for one another and may you love one another forever.
