Invocation

We gather here on this beautiful moment to witness the union of Daria and Matthew in holy matrimony. Consider this a moment of great celebration, for a married life—a shared life—brings great blessings. As Daria and Matthew embark on this journey together they will nurture a love that makes them better versions of themselves. Consider marriage a garden we sow with love, and harvest in personal growth.

Daria and Matthew, on your journey together, keep your spouse in the temple in your heart. Cherish the love that U share as your most valuable treasure. Let the abundance of love flowing between U overflow into the rest of your life. Always remember these words: “We accept the love we think we deserve.”

Vows Exchange

U have chosen to write your vows, and with these words U express your binding promises to love, honor, and cherish one another. If U feel ready to make these promises to each other I invite U now to face each other and declare your intentions.

Daria when U feel ready U may begin.

Daria reads vows

Matt, I don’t actually remember the first time we met. What I remember as my first time meeting U was apparently months after we had actually first met.

I felt so drawn to your loving presence, Ur goofy laugh, and Ur long wavy hair. Ur willingness to help debug a frustrating PHP error, and guide me through my first meditation experience piqued my interest.

U were the first person I felt completely free to open myself up to; I had been holding in my emotions and trying to maintain my composure after my dad had passed away.

With this vulnerability came many trials and tribulations for us to work through. Thank U for sticking it with me for all these years, and for the years to come.

I do not take our time together for granted, and I marvel at what a privilege it is to be able to love someone so deeply.

I vow to maintain an open mind as we navigate the uncertainty of an exciting future together.

I vow to support U as U work to align our life with Ur soul’s purpose.

I vow to live curiously, to ask why, to cultivate knowledge and share it with U.

I vow to invoke joy and light everyday, especially when weathering unexpected challenges and storms with U.

I vow to practice gratitude, to show U how thankful I am for all that we’ve built together, and will continue to build together.

I promise to practice self-love, because U loved me when I didn’t love myself, and I want to show U that I am worthy of our love.

I vow to understand that change is a part growth, and that we can learn from our past mistakes to move forward to become even stronger.

I promise to see our partnership as an ever-evolving partnership, to always leave room for more love; to love those that U love.

I vow to inject our lives with humor and goofiness, because we wouldn’t be Bean-a-thew and Dar-a-thon without them.

Matthew when U feel ready U may begin.

Matthew reads vows

I vow that I will strive to uphold the following vows to the best of my ability unless they conflict with my ethical principles or the course of my soul’s purpose.

I vow to always consider U and those U love as my own family.

I vow to always carefully consider your advice before making important decisions.

I vow to always support and nurture your growth however I can.

I vow to always seek opportunities to benefit our family.

I vow to always teach and share any knowledge of mine that U desire to learn.

I vow to always work to improve myself to make myself a better partner for U.

I vow to always consider your perspective and welfare when making decisions.

I vow to always breathe deeply and respond with good humor if conflict arises between us.

I vow to always share my feelings and thoughts with U.

I vow to always encourage and facilitate the growth of relationships and love in your life.

I vow to always enjoy and cherish our time together as a freely given gift of your choice.

I vow that if U ever choose to leave me I will respect your decision, thank U for the time and energy U invested in me, and arrange our uncoupling with grace.

I vow to always strengthen our bonds of love, care, and commitment that we may grow a lasting partnership.

Rings Exchange

Thank U for sharing your vows with all of us. The rings U will place on each other’s fingers symbolize the love you expressed. They will remind U of the vows U have just spoken, and of the love that U have for one another.

Daria, place the ring on Matthew’s finger and repeat after me.

As this ring encircles your finger… From this moment forward… So will my love encircle you… I will walk by your side… My heart will shelter U… My arms will house U… We will walk through life as partners & best friends… I promise to do my best to love, cherish and accept you… I give you my heart… I have no greater gift to give.

Now, Matthew, place the ring on Daria’s finger and repeat after me.

As this ring encircles your finger… From this moment forward… So will my love encircle you… I will walk by your side… My heart will shelter U… My arms will house U… We will walk through life as partners & best friends… I promise to do my best to love, cherish and accept you… I give you my heart… I have no greater gift to give.
