SAMPLE VOW RENEWAL
When you first joined hands and hearts in marriage, you didn’t know where life would take you.
You promised to love, honor and cherish one another through all things. Life has brought you both wonderful blessings and difficult challenges.
As you continue on your journey together, I ask you to remember this advice:
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.
Say "I love you" every day.
I remind you that marriage is a precious gift; a lifelong dedication to love and a daily challenge to love one another more fully and more freely.
With this understanding, do you _____, continue to take _____ as your beloved wife? Will you continue to be a tender, faithful husband? Will you continue to love and cherish her, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, for better for worse, and keep yourself only unto her?

Will you continue to love and cherish him, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, for better for worse, and keep yourself only unto him?
When you first joined hands you gave each other rings as the outward symbols of your commitment to each other.
_____, touch _____'s ring, reminding yourself of all the reasons you gave it to her and repeat after me. From this day on, I recommit myself to you, and this ring is a symbol of my pledge.

Marriage is a commitment to learning to care for one another in mutually fulfilling ways. It is not an act but a life-long relationship always in the making.
May the sun bring you new energy by day.
May the moon softly restore you by night.
May the rain wash away your worries.
And may you live the days of your lives in peace, love, and happiness.
Having witnessed your vows of affirmation with all who are assembled here, and by the authority of love itself, I do affirm that you have been and will always remain husband and wife.
"FANTASTIC job Rebecca. I LOVE your photographer. Please make sure he knows how much I appreciate his attention to detail and his talent."
