Before you (BRIDE and GROOM, are three candles. Two are lit to represent your lives as you come together with each other. Each of these candles represents your own history, your own memories of the past, and dreams of the future. In love, you have vowed to give to each other a NEW HISTORY, in a NEW LIFE of love.
Together, unite the flames of these candles over the wick of the unburned candle, signifying your purpose to begin this new life of wonder.
LIGHT CANDLE TOGETHER
And even as the old candles continue to burn, representing your families and friends who have been and still are a part of you, know that your new relationship as Husband and Wife now shines above all other human loyalties.
PRONOUNCEMENT AND DECLARATION OF MARRIAGE
As you have pledged your faith, each to the other, by joining hands and exchanging of vows, it is my privilege to Pronounce you Husband and Wife.
You may seal you vows with a kiss.
