Betrothal

After the minister delivers The Charge to the Bride and Groom explaining what their responsibilities are to God and each other he then asks them first if they have come to be married of their own free will and second if they are ready to be married to each other.

We bless you this day. It is up to you to keep the blessings flowing each and every day of your lives together. We wish for you the wisdom, compassion, and constancy to create a peaceful sanctuary in which you can both grow in love.
