Florida Beach Weddings Sample Vows

We are gathered here today to celebrate one of life’s greatest moments, the joining of Spouse and Spouse in the unity of marriage.

Marriage Address

The state of matrimony is a true marriage only when based on the deep, invisible union of two souls who seek to find completion in one another.  Today your separate lives with their individual memories, desires, and hopes merge into one.  Spouse and Spouse, bring to this new life, each for the sake of the other, the best that you have in you.

Love is the reason why this day was chosen by you both to begin your life together and love is the reason why you both will give with all your hearts for the good of each other.

Hand Ceremony

Spouse and Spouse, please hold each other’s hands and see the gifts they are to you.  These are the hands of your best friend, strong and vibrant with love that are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other all the days of your lives together.

These are the hands that will work alongside you as together you build your future, as you laugh and cry, as you share your innermost secrets and dreams.  These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years for a lifetime of happiness.

These are the hands that will comfort you in illness and hold you when fear or grief wracks your mind.  These are the hands that will give you support as you encourage each other to chase your dreams.

As you hold these gifts, cherish them with all of your being and together, as a team, everything you wish for can be realized.

Ceremony Vows

Spouse, will you take Spouse, to be your wedded wife?  To have and to hold, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health.  Will you love her, comfort her, and be faithful to her from this day forward? –I Will

Spouse, will you take Spouse, to be your wedded husband?  To have and to hold, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health.  Will you love him, comfort him, and be faithful to him from this day forward? –I Will

Personal vows to each other can be added here

Ring Ceremony

For thousands of years, couples have exchanged rings as a token of their vows.  Your lives will now be joined in one unbroken circle.  Wherever you go, you will always return to each other.

Spouse, please place the ring on Spouse’s finger and repeat after me:  I offer you this ring as a token of our love, and with it I join my life to yours.

Spouse, please place the ring on Spouse’s finger and repeat after me: I offer you this ring as a token of our love, and with it I join my life to yours.

Sand Ceremony

Spouse and Spouse, you have committed here today to share the rest of your lives with each other.  Today, this marriage is symbolized through the pouring of individual containers of sand.  One representing you Spouse, and the other representing you, Spouse, and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be.(children can be added to this ceremony here).  As these separate containers of sand are poured into the common container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one.  Just as these sands can never be separated, and poured into their individual containers, again, so will your marriage, and family, be.

Charge to the Couple

Spouse and Spouse, as the two of you come into this marriage uniting you as husband and wife, and as you this day affirm your faith and love for one another, I would ask that you always remember to cherish each other as special and unique individuals, that you respect the thoughts, ideas and suggestions of one another.  Be able to forgive, do not hold grudges, and live each day that you may share it together – as from this day forward you shall be each other’s home, comfort and refuge, your marriage strengthened by your love and respect.


Spouse and Spouse, insomuch as the two of you have agreed to live together in marriage, have promised your love and commitment for each other by these vows, and the giving of these rings, by the authority vested in me by the State of Florida, I now pronounce you husband and wife.

Spouse, you may now kiss your bride.

I would like to introduce to you for the very first time ________________.

NOTE:  This is just one of the several sample of ceremonies we have for your to choose from.  We have religious-tone ceremonies, with prayers and blessings, added.  And, we have several more non-denominational and same sex vows to choose from.  And, we do have a great ceremony exclusively for vow renewals (all of our available ceremonies are adaptable for vow renewals).




Tips for Writing your own Vows

Personal vows are a great addition to any wedding ceremony. It really personalizes the ceremony for the two of you, and your guests attending love to hear your cute story, or how you truly make each other feel. You can make it personal by adding a very short version of how you met, how your new wife/husband has changed your life, a funny story, or phrase that your guests can relate to about the couple you are. Don’t wait until last minute to write them. That will be too much pressure to get them done!

Make sure you bring them to the beach wedding ceremony site with you (put them with your Florida marriage license envelope, so you don’t forget the two most important things to bring to your wedding ceremony).

Personal vows are not necessary, so don’t feel the need to add this pressure to your list. Our professional wedding officiates will provide you with vows that you will both love to use for on your wedding day.
