The Silver of Devoted Companionship

One of the best things about being a wedding filmmaker is having the opportunity to hear messages about marriage on a regular basis. It is my opinion that those of us who document weddings should have the heathiest marriages ever! When I was filming Lauren and Jim's ceremony, I was struck by the beauty of the words the officiant spoke. I had never heard them before; they were very classic and reminiscent of a bygone era. In short, they gave me warm fuzzies! While I was editing their film, I jotted down the words so that I could share them with you here. Enjoy the richness of meaning.
Holy and happy is the sacred hour in which two devoted hearts are joined in the bonds of matrimony. We are reminded of the myriad magic charms of the home, of the quiet fireside where Christ and his peace surpasseth all understanding, are the respected, the cherished, and the prominent guests. Here we are reminded of the lengthening days when the eventide shadows are fringed with the silver of devoted companionship's purest sympathy. Originating in divine wisdom and goodness, designed to promote human happiness and holiness, this rite is the foundation of home life and social order and must remain so until the end of time.
