Dearly Beloved ,

We are gathered together here in the sight of God

and in the face of this company

to join together this man and this woman in holy matrimony,

which is commended to be honorable among all men;

and therefore is not by any to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly

but reverently, discreetly, advisedly and solemnly.

Into this holy estate these two persons present now come to be joined.

If any person can show just cause why they may not be joined together

speak now or forever hold your peace.

These Solemn Vows (Legally Binding, Pt. II)

I take you

to live together after God's ordinance

in the holy estate of matrimony.

I will love you, comfort you, honor and keep you,

in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer,

for better, for worse, forsaking all others,

for as long as we both shall live.

In as much as this man and this woman

have consented together in marriage

before this company of friends and family,

I now pronounce you man and wife.

You may kiss the bride.
