Readings For Your Wedding

I always have two readings in my ceremonies, one at the beginning and another one at the end.  If you are having a bilingual ceremony, then one can be in Spanish and the other in English.  The officiant can do the readings or you can have family members or friends become part of your special day and read at the ceremony.  Here are some of the many to choose from:

 

Because I love you

Because I love you, I can look at life with clear eyes

And face tomorrow with a brave heart.

Because I love you, I can wake up everyday with brand new hope

and go to sleep peacefully, as seasons come and seasons go!

All... because I love you.

 

You are!

You are not the air that I breathe, you are the sweet scent that drifts upon it.

You are not the sounds that I hear, you are the music of my life.

You are not the food that I need, you are the nourishment of my soul.

You are not my will to survive, you are my reason for living.

 

The Tree of Life

Marriage creates, from two committed spirits, one beautiful Tree of Life.

Its roots are the trust and devotion that underlie each action, thought and motive.

Its branches are experiences shares, hopes realized and dreams pursued.

And its blossoms are the kisses, gentle words and tender sighs that decorate each day and beautify the union of two loving hearts.

May your love grow like a beautiful tree, sending its roots deep and branches high, with new beauty in every season of your life together.

 

RELIGIOUS READINGS

Where There is Love

Where there is Love, there is a beauty that cannot be described,

a strength that cannot be broken,

a joy that cannot be surpassed.

For where there is Love, there is God!

May God bless you as you begin the journey

down the road of life, together,

and may His presence in your marriage make your union

a very special one.

 

The Fruit of the Spirit

The Fruit of the Spirit within married life brings strength to the union of husband and wife.

Love is the feeling that brings you together.  Joy brings delight you can share.

Peace is the feeling that drives away fears. With Patience, you will listen and care.

Faithfulness is the root from which everything grows,

Gentleness, Self-Control and Kindness bloom where God's grace overflows.

So with trust in the Lord you will discover the way,

to harvest the Fruit of your Spirit each wonderful day!

 

Paul's Letter to the Corinthians

Love is patient and kind.

Love is not jealous or boastful.

It is never selfish or rude.

Love does not demand on it's own way.

It is not irritable or resentful.

Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but finds it's joy in the truth.

Love bears all things, believes all things and hopes all things.

Love will never end.
