Friends, we are gathered here today to celebrate the love of ___________and _____________, as they make their pledges of marriage before family and friends.

Marriage is an act of faith and ever-deepening commitment, as well as a loving union between a man and a woman. It has been described as the best and the most important relationship that two people can share.
