9: Today is a day of celebration. We are here, on this Caribbean island, surrounded by incredible beauty to celebrate life, love, and the beauty of relationships. But more importantly we are here to celebrate the relationship of two people who have come to embark on an incredible journey and set sail for a magical life together. It is such a wonderful blessing that the two of you have found each other in this world. Your hearts met and through your relationship unfolded vulnerable honesty, gentle caring, and that crazy little thing we call love, which has bonded you for life. The beauty of marriage is that you will always continue to learn together and teach each other, to open each other to explore new ideas, to share life and bring out the very best in one another. The two of you will never lost your freedom be being married because you will become freer be being together. Your world will become larger and your options more abundant than what would have been alone. What could be more beautiful? What could be more fun?

12: Presenting of Rings
13: Let these rings, which you exchange, server to remind us that a circle is a symbol of the sun, the earth, and the universe. A circle has no beginning and no ending. It is a symbol of wholeness, peace and completeness. These rings are very special because they remind us that we are individuals yet we are not alone. Wear them to tell each other and the whole world that you are in love with the very special person wearing the other one.
