Marriage

Donald and Laura's Wedding Portrait
Hebrews 13:4, NIV

Dearly beloved, we have gathered together in the Presence of God and these witnesses to join together this man and this woman in Holy Matrimony. The covenant of marriage was established by God in Creation, and our Lord Jesus Christ adorned this manner of life by His Presence and first miracle at a wedding in Cana of Galilee. It signifies to us the mystery o f the union between Christ and His Church, and Holy Scripture commends it to be honored among all people.

The union of man and wife in heart, body, and mind is intended by god for their mutual joy; for the help and comfort given one another in prosperity and adversity; and, when it is God's Will, for the procreation of children and their nurture in the knowledge and love of the Lord. Therefore, marriage is not to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly, but reverently, deliberately, and in accordance with the purposes for which it was instituted by God.

Into this holy union this man and this woman now come to be joined in holy matrimony. If any of you can show just cause for why they should not be legally married, speak now; or forever hold your peace.

O, gracious and everlasting God, you have created us male and female in your image: Look mercifully upon this man and this woman who come to you seeking your blessing, and assist them with your grace, that with true fidelity and steadfast love they may honor and keep the promises and vows they make; through Jesus Christ our Savior, who lives and reigns with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.                                    Amen.

John and Karen's Wedding Portrait

Bless, O Lord this ring to be given as a sign of the vows by which this man and this woman have bound themselves to each other; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

I give you this ring as a symbol of my vow, and with all that I am, and all that I have, I honor you, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

I give you this ring as a symbol of my vow, and with all that I am, and all that I have, I honor you, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Now, that this man and this woman have given themselves to each other by solemn vows, with the joining of hands and the giving and receiving of a ring, I pronounce that they are man and wife, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Those Whom God has Joined Together,

Let no one put Asunder!
