On Our Wedding Day, We Made A Promise!

On our wedding day we made a promise. To love each other forever. This symbol reminds us of that vow. And why Jesus brought us together.

The heart stands for our love. Which time has never broken. From it we find the strenght to forgive, when angry words are spoken.

The entwining rings show how our lives are joined into one. And how dependent we are on each other for understanding and compassion.

The cross is a sign of our faith. In the Lord who blesses us each day, it is He who enriches our marriage in every possible way.

For most couples, renewing their vows is something best done on a special anniversary. The truth is, you can renew your vows at any time!


Say the vows that mean something special to you and your love! The day you renew your vows should be just as special as the day you were first married, and it will be. Because this time, you’ll get to say everything you wanted to say the first time around – and no one should talk you out of it!

1 Corinthians. 13:4-13

Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,

it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

And now faith, hope, and love abide, but the greatest of these is love.

I Love You…

I love you.

You are my best friend.

Today I give myself to you in marriage.

I promise to encourage and inspire you,

to laugh with you, and to comfort you

in times of sorrow and struggle.

I promise to love you in good times and in bad,

when life seems easy and when it seems hard,

when our love is simple, and when it is an effort.

I promise to cherish you,

and to always hold you in highest regard.

These things I give to you today,

and all the days of our life.

Our Pledge

We pledge to each other to be loving friends and partners in marriage.

To talk and to listen, to trust and appreciate one another;

to respect and cherish each other’s uniqueness; and to

support, comfort and strengthen each other through life’s joys and sorrows.

We promise to share hopes, thoughts and dreams as we build our lives together.

May our lives be ever intertwined, our love keeping us together.

We will build a home that is compassionate to all,

full of respect and honor for others and each other.

May our home be forever filled with peace, happiness and love.

By the Seaside

As we stand beside the ocean tide,

may our love always be as constant and unchanging

as these never-ending waves that pour beneath our feet,

flowing endlessly from the depths of the sea;

your love came softly upon my heart,

just as the foam comes softly upon the sand,

and just as there will never be a morning

without the ocean’s flow,

so there will never be a day

without my love for you.

I pledge myself to you this day.

Our love will be as unchanging

and dependable as the tide;

as these waters nourish the earth

and sustain life, may my constant devotion

nourish and sustain you

until the end of time.

As We Renew Our Vows

Today, we reaffirm our commitment to each other

as beloveds and partners in marriage.

We continue to strive to be sensitive to each other’s needs,

to be open and understanding with each other,

and to share our thoughts, our feelings,

and our experiences with each other.

We renew our promise to try always to

bring out the qualities of forgiveness, compassion,

and integrity in our selves and in each other.

We continue to cherish each other’s uniqueness.

We continue to share in life’s joys and remain steadfast

and comfort each other through life’s sorrows.

Now you will feel no rain, for

each of us will be shelter for the other.

Now you will feel no cold, for

each of us will be warmth to the other.

Now there will be no loneliness, for

each of us will be companion to the other.

Now you are two persons, but

there is only one life before us.

May beauty surround us both in the

journey ahead and through all the years.

May happiness be our companion and

our days together be good and long upon the earth.

Let us treat ourselves and each other with respect, and

remind ourselves often of what brought us together.

Give the highest priority to the tenderness,

gentleness and kindness that our connection deserves.

When frustration, difficulties and fear assail our relationship, as

they threaten all relationships at one time or another,

remember to focus on what is right between us,

not only the part which seems wrong.

In this way, we can ride out the storms when

clouds hide the face of the sun in our lives –

remembering that even if we lose sight

of it for a moment, the sun is still there.

And if each of us takes responsibility for

the quality of our life together,

it will be marked by abundance and delight.

I take you as my partner…

I take you as my partner, my friend and my love.

My hopes and dreams will now be intermingled with yours.

I will seek to balance my needs with those of our community and family.

I will openly draw from our combined experience

and feelings in our search for truth and meaning.

I will strive for harmony through compromise and understanding.

I will be forgiving, but not complacent.

From this day forward, I take shared responsibility

for our marriage, family, community and myself,

regardless of our successes or failures.

I promise to be faithful and true to you in mind,

body, and spirit; to cherish you and respect you;

and to be a source of comfort and encouragement,

free and bound by our love, as long as we shall live.
