I honestly don't sleep much because I'm just so excited!! every time I'm close to sleep I think of my dress or seeing Jordan's face the first time he sees me! Gets my heart pounding! Almost as exhilarating as running my horse around the barrel pattern! @

Me either, but some how I pulled it off.  HAHAH  Husband said to be the other night he was shocked I couldn't tell he had to wipe tears from his eyes. But he didn't wipe them because he didn't want anyone to see him do it. I knew he was emotional but he held them back better than he thinks too

I tear up when I hear our wedding songs in my car for crying out loud LOL!!! I have no idea how I didn't cry.

Only thought it maybe because of the legal ceremony? I had some practice.   Not sure.

This is what I think we will have said for our ceremony:

 

Ceremony/vows

 

Izabella & Jordan

May 6th,2015

 

Opening

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 Izabella and Jordan.

 

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 Izabella and Jordan, 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 Izabella and Jordan 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.

 

Ceremony

 

The marriage between Izabella and Jordan does not mark the beginning of a new relationship; rather, it is an acknowledgement and celebration, of a relationship that has been flourishing since they met.

 

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 other’s needs. You have come to thrive upon each other’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.

 

Izabella and Jordan would you please face each other and join your hands.

 

 

Vows

 

Izabella, as I say these words, would you please repeat after me…

 

I love you, Jordan. You are my best friend. Today I give myself to you in marriage. I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you, and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle.

 

I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard, when our love is simple, and when it is an effort. I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in highest regard. These things I give to you today, and all the days of our life. I am forever yours……faithfully.

 

Jordan as I say these words, would you please repeat after me…

 

I love you, Izabella, You too are my best friend. Today I give myself to you in marriage. I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you, and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle. I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard, when our love is simple, and when it is an effort. I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in highest regard. These things I give to you today, and all the days of our life. I am forever yours……faithfully.

 

 

The Rings

 

Izabella and Jordan, 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.

 

Jordan as you place this ring on Izabella's finger please repeat after me…

 

Izabella, 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.

 

Izabella, if you accept please say I do…

 

 

Izabella as you place this ring on Jordan's finger, please repeat after me…

 

Jordan, 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.

 

Jordan, if you except, please say “I Do”.

 

HAND CEREMONY

 

Izabella and Jordan, before you met, your lives were on separate roads… each going in different directions and seemingly leading to different destinations. But somewhere along the way, through some twist of fate, you met, became friends, and fell in love. Today, you find yourselves standing here together at the start of a new path, promising to forever join your separate journeys into one.

 

Izabella, please hold Jordan's hands palms up, so you may see the gift that they are to you.

 

These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and vibrant with love, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as he promises to passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness.

These are the hands that will work along side yours, as together you build your future, as you laugh and cry, as you share your innermost secrets and dreams.

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 massage tension from you neck and back in the evenings after you’ve both had a long hard day.

These are the hands that will comfort you in illness, and hold you when fear or grief engulfs your heart.

And these are the hands that when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.

 

Jordan take a look at the position of your hands with Izabella's; and know this will be the last time you have the upper hand.

 

Jordan would you please hold Izabella's hands palms up so you may see the gift that they are to you.

 

These are the hands of your best friend, smooth, young and carefree, that are holding yours on your wedding day, 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 in joy, excitement and hope each time she tells you that you are to have another child; that together you have created new life.

These are the hands that will hold you tight as you struggle through difficult times.

These are the hands that will comfort you when you are sick, or console you when you are grieving.

And these are the hands that will give you support as she encourages you to chase down your dreams. Together as a team, everything you wish for can be realized.

 

 

Commitment of family and friends

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, Izabella and Jordan have demonstrated in your presence today, their belief in their love, and their desire to live together in matrimony. If you also believe in their love, and wish to add your blessing on their marriage today, please respond now by saying……………WE DO

 

And are you all willing to sustain and strengthen this marriage, by giving Izabella and Jordan the public commitment of your love and support, through all the ups and downs ahead of them…If you are willing, please say……….WE ARE

 

Pronouncement

 

Now that you have joined yourselves in marriage, may you strive always to meet this commitment, with the same spirit and positive energy you are now showing. We all bear witness to this ceremony you have just performed, and this bond that has been formed today can be broken by none.

 

With friends and family, along with the sun, the moon, and the sea, I have the pleasure as your officient today, on May 6th,2015 of announcing the two of you by those old and respected names, Husband and Wife!

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, Family and Friends I give to you,

 

Mr. And Mrs. Jordan Davidson, you may now kiss the bride!!!
