Gentle and Loving – Option 2

We are today to share with Groom and Bride a very important moment in your lives. In the years you have been together, your love and understanding of each other has grown and matured, and now you decided to live your lives together as husband and wife.

Marriage is a journey of two lives based on love. Love is patience and kindness. There is nothing love cannot face; there is no limit to its faith, its hope, and its endurance. No other human ties are more tender, no other vows are more sacred.

Groom and Bride, you are about to make vows and promises to one another. Today, these vows are beautiful words representing even more beautiful intentions. As you live these vows over the years, offering freely your time and your love to one another, the meaning of these words will deepen, and the happy times of your life will be twice as joyous, because you’ll be sharing them with someone you love. And when life gets tough, it will only be half as difficult, because there will be someone by your side.
