Greeting & Opening prayer- Given by Minister
Blessing of the hands
Courtney, please face T.K. and hold his hands, palms up, so that you may see the gift that they are to you.
These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness. These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow and tears of joy. These are the hands that will comfort you in illness and hold you when fear or grief fills you. These are the hands that will give you support and celebrate with you in your accomplishments.
T.K., take a look at the position of your hands with Courtneyâ€™s and know that this is the last time that you will have the â€œupper hand.â€
T.K., please hold Courtneyâ€™s hands, palms up, so that you may see the gift that they are to you.
These are the hands of your best friend, smooth, young and carefree, as she promises to passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness. These are the hands that will hold you tight as you struggle through difficult times. They are the hands that will comfort you when you are sick or console you when you are grieving. These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness. These are the hands that will give you support as she encourages you to fulfill your dreams.
Our prayer for you today is that both of you will use these hands to build a marriage where all your dreams come true.
Declaration of Intent
T.K. do you take this woman to be your wife, and do you pledge your faithfulness to her, in all love and honor, in all duty and service, in all faith and tenderness, to live with her, and cherish her, according to the ordinance of God, in the holy bond of marriage?
Courtney, do you take this man to be your husband, and do you pledge your faithfulness to him, in all love and honor, in all duty and service, in all faith and tenderness, to live with him, and cherish him, according to the ordinance of God, in the holy bond of marriage?
Asked to Congregation:
Will you bless this couple, encouraging them in Christâ€™s love, in faithful prayer and loving service, according to the ordinance of God, as a family of believers celebrating and sharing in His grace and love?
Exchange of Vows
Bride and Groom will share personal vows they have written.
Exchange of Rings- Repeat after minister
I give you this ring as my pledge
That I shall cherish you with all my heart and soul from this day forward
in the name of the Father; and of the Son; and of the Holy Spirit.
The engagement ring is a symbol of promise and intention. Now the intention is realized and the promise fulfilled. TK, please place the engagement ring on Courtneyâ€™s finger over her wedding band to symbolize that the love that brought you together will always protect and sustain your marriage.
"Today, this relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these two individual containers of sand one, representing you Courtney and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be, and the other representing you, T.K., and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be. As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be."
Closing prayer/Benediction-Given by Minister
Declaration of Marriage
Having declared your love and commitment before God and these witnesses; having given each other rings symbolizing the purity and permanence of your commitment; by the authority vested in me as a minister of Jesus Christ, I declare Courtney and TK are now husband and wife according to the ordinance of God, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Whom God has joined together, let no man put asunder. Amen.
Presentation of the couple
Mr. and Mrs. T.K. Johnson
