Unity Sand & Pronouncement
(Bride) and (Groom) today you join your separate lives together.
The two separate cups of sand in front of us symbolize your separate lives, separate families and separate sets of friends. They represent all that you are and all that youâ€™ll ever be as an individual.
But they also represent your lives before today. 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.

Final words from an Apache Prayerâ€¦
Now you will feel no rain,
for each of you will be shelter for the other.
Now you will feel no cold,
for each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there will be no loneliness,
for each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two persons,
but there are three lives before you: his life, her life and your life together.
Go now to your dwelling place to enter into your days together.
And may all your days be good and long upon the Earth.
Now that you have joined yourselves in matrimony, may you strive always to meet this commitment, with the same spirit you now are now shining.
We all bear witness to this ceremony, and this bond that has been formed today can be broken by none.
From the City of Puerto Vallarta to Las Caletas Mexico, it is my honour as your Officiant today, to now declare you both Husband and Wife.
Ladies and Gentlemen family and friends, Mr. And Mrs. (Last Name)
(Groom), you may kiss your Bride.
