We love to interact and communicate with our couples. Diane, a fan on our Facebook page asked about wording for her ceremony. We started with wording for a sand ceremony, and modified it for Unity in Glass to capture the special nature of this sand ceremony alternative.
Diane finished off the wording to be personal and meaningful to her and her new family. She's graciously shared her final work, and we'd like to share it with you. I particularly like the last sentence.
"Today, Diane and Eric, have chosen to commemorate their marriage through the celebration of a unity ceremony.
Instead of a candle or sand, they have chosen a higher form of art to timelessly and beautifully represent their marriage.
This ceremony symbolizes the inseparable union of Diane and Eric into a new, beautiful, and eternal marital relationship. They are also including Diane’s children Madalyn and Justin in the ceremony. Because not only it is an inseparable relationship between the two of them, it is a bringing together of a family as a whole. Diane, Eric, Madalyn, and Justin have each selected different colors of crushed glass crystals that represent aspects of each of them, individually.
Each shimmering and sparkling color of glass represents a unique and separate moment, decision, feeling or experience that helped shaped Diane and Eric into the beautiful and unique individuals that they are today.
Today they will combine the colored glass crystals into a common vessel. The blending of the these individual crystals representing those separate and independent individual characteristics that will beautifully complement each other and build a greater good, together.
Working with a highly skilled glass artisan, Diane. Eric, Madalyn, and Justin are now taking the first step in collaboratively creating a beautiful work of art. It will magnificently and symbolically represent their merge into a loving and supportive marital union.
Diane & Eric, just as the crystals of glass soon will be fused together into a unified symbol of your commitment--so too, will be your life after marriage-- beautiful, unified, complete, complimentary and forever."
