On behalf of David and Allyson, welcome!!
We are here to celebrate the marriage of two special friends, more than a ceremony, this is a significant moment of celebration and personal commitment.
The essence of this commitment is the taking of another person in their entirety, as a companion and a friend. It is therefore a decision which is not entered into lightly, but with great consideration and respect.
From this day forward you will come closer than ever before. You will promise to love one another in sickness and in health, for better and for worse, but at the same time your love for each other will give you the strength to stand apart to seek your unique destinies.
Please join hands
David, will you take Allyson to be your wife? Will you commit your life to her, embracing all joys and sorrows, all triumphs and hardships. Will you be there for her when she needs your support. "I will"
Allyson, will you take David to be your husband? Will you commit your life to him, embracing all joys and sorrows, all triumphs and hardships. Will you be there for him when he needs your support. "I will"
Do you have rings to exchange? These rings are an outward sign of the commitment you have come here to confirm and to celebrate.
David as you place the ring on Allyson's finger, please repeat after me: With this ring I thee wed, I give you this ring as a sign of my love and faithfulness. May all that see know that you have been touched by my love.
Allyson as you place the ring on David's finger, please repeat after me: With this ring I thee wed, I give you this ring as a sign of my love and faithfulness. May all that see know that you have been touched by my love.
May you love deeply, laugh heartily, practice patience and smile often. May you dream together, grow, be crazy, give, give in, and trust enough to take. May you see many sunrises, listen to the rain, savor special moments and rediscover each other over and over. May you have health, happiness and a lifetime of rich adventure. By the power vested in me by laws of the State of (Michigan), I now pronounce you husband and wife! You may seal your vows with a kiss!
I present to you David and Allyson as husband and wife!
