Vow Renewal -  Love Is Contentt


Greeting / Welcoming Words

Welcome family and friends… love and relationships are what life is about. We have come here joyfully to celebrate the decision GROOM and BRIDE made ___ years ago to share their love by joining in marriage. Good relationships never stop growing. Like fine wine, they get better with age.


GROOM and BRIDE, you have now been married ____ years and through all the years of your journey together, you have now come to this beautiful setting, so that you could renew your vow and commitment of love for each other.


No marriage is perfect. As you continue in this union, you already know that it will continue to take a lot of love and work to keep your relationship an ongoing success. As you continue to travel on your journey together, always remember to: Let your love be stronger than your anger. Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend than to break.


Believe the best of your beloved rather than the worst. Confide in your partner and ask for help when you need it. Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship. Give your spouse the same courtesies and kindnesses you bestow on your friends. And… say “I love you” every day.


A Special Reading of Love

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. Love is content with the present, it hopes for the future, and it does not brood over the past.


It’s the day-in and day-out chronicle of irritations, problems, compromises, small disappointments, big victories and working toward common goals. If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things that are missing. If you don’t have love in your life, no matter what else there is, it’s not enough.

Vow Renewal -  Bonds of Love


Greeting / Welcoming Words

Blessings and welcome. We are gathered her today in the beautiful place to celebrate the re-uniting of GROOM and BRIDE in the enduring bonds of marriage.


Let this be a day of gladness, thanksgiving, possibility, and good fortune for all of us. And especially for GROOM and BRIDE, who are here to renew and celebrate their love. Just as spring blossoms anew after a harsh winter, so must spouses renew their love for each other in their daily lives.

A Poem by James Dillet Freeman

May your marriage bring you all the exquisite excitement marriage should bring, and may life grant you also patience, tolerance, and understanding. May you always need one another not so much to fill your emptiness as to help you to know your fullness. A mountain needs a valley to be complete; the valley does not make the mountain less, but more; and the valley is more a valley because it has a mountain towering over it. May you need one another, but not out of weakness. May you want one another, but not out of lack. May you entice one another, but not compel one another. May you embrace one another, but not out encircle one another. May you succeed in all important ways with one another, and not fail in the little graces.


May you look for things to praise, often say, “I love you!” and take no notice of small faults. If you have quarrels that push you apart, may both of you hope to have good sense enough to take the first step back. May you enter into the mystery which is the awareness of one another’s presence—no more physical than spiritual, warm and near when you are side by side, and warm and near when you are in separate rooms or even distant cities.


May you have happiness, and may you find it making one another happy. May you have love, and may you find it loving one another.
