THE FATHER OF THE BRIDE:

be my wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward,
for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness
and in health, to love and to cherish, til death alone do us
part, according to Godís holy ordinance and hereto I pledge
thee my promise.

NOW ___________________, repeat after me. I, ________________
take thee _____________________, to be my wedded husband, to
have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for
worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to
love and to cherish, til death alone do us part, according
to Godís holy ordinance and hereto I pledge thee my promise.

BRIDE HANDS MAID OF HONOR THE BOUQUET.

MINISTER ADDRESSES GROOM: ______________________, What pledge
do you give of the sincerity of your vows? ANS. - This ring

MINISTER TAKES RING AND ADDRESSES BRIDE:

_____________________, Do you accept this ring as a pledge of
the sincerity of his vows? ANS. - I do

MINISTER HANDS RING TO GROOM WHO PLACES IT ON THE 3RD FINGER
OF BRIDEíS LEFT HAND AND REPEATS: With this ring I thee
wed, this day before God and all my worldly goods I thee
endow.


MINISTER: And may this ring which has no end be henceforth,
the chaste and changeless symbol of your love for this woman,
the vows you take this day, and a mark of your faithfulness
to her.

MINISTER ADDRESSES THE BRIDE: __________________, What pledge
do you give of the sincerity of your vows? ANS. - This ring

MINISTER TAKES RING AND ADDRESSES GROOM:

_____________________, Do you accept this ring as a pledge of
the sincerity of her vows? ANS. - I do

MINISTER HANDS RING TO BRIDE WHO PLACES IT ON THE 3RD FINGER
OF GROOMíS LEFT HAND AND REPEATS: This ring I thee give,
in token and pledge, of my constant faith, and abiding
love, and the vows I make, this day before God.

MINISTER: May this ring given be the outward and visible sign
of an inward and spiritual bond that unites your hearts in
love and may it always be.

For as much as __________________ and __________________ have
consented in holy marriage and thereto have given and pledged
their promise each to the other and have confirmed the same
by giving and receiving each one a ring; by the authority
committed unto me as a minister of the gospel of Jesus
Christ, I now declare you husband and wife according to the
ordinance of God and the laws of this state, in the Name of
the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Therefore let
all men take care in the sight of God, this holy covenant
shall ever remain sacred. What God hath joined together, let
no man put asunder.

THE MINISTER CAN NOW SAY: This day marks a new era in your
lives now united. From this day forward you will travel
lifeís pathway not alone but together. It is our prayer that
you will allow the Lord Jesus into this life you now walk
together and that he will be accepted as Savior and Shepherd.
For if he is allowed into you lives now united as Savior and
Shepherd, then you will not want in your lives together. Let
love forever be enthroned in your hearts for two cannot walk
together
