20: Our Ceremony Today we have gathered in this place of natural beauty to be joyful, in the celebration of the marriage of Bret Carroll and Correen Betts. (Who presents this woman to this man?) Bret and Correen, I would ask that you both remember to treat yourself and each other with respect, and remind yourself often of what brought you here today. Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness, and kindness that your marriage deserves. When frustration and difficulty assail your marriage- as they do every relationship at one time or another- focus on what still seems right between you, not only the part that seems wrong. And if each of you will take responsibility for the quality of your life together, it will be marked by abundance of delight. (Please share your vows with each other) These rings are a symbol of the unbroken circle of love. May these rings always remind you of the vows you have taken today. "With this ring, I thee wed"
21: Just as two threads woven in opposite directions will form a most beautiful tapestry, so too can your two lives merged together make a beautiful marriage. To make your relationship work it will take love. This is the core of your marriage and why you are here today. It will take trust, to know in your hearts that you truly want the best for each other. It will take dedication, to stay open to one another- and to learn and grow together. It will take faith, to go forward together without knowing exactly what the future beholds. And it will take commitment, to hold true to the journey you both pledge today to share together. Bret and Correen, in so much as the two of you have agreed to live together in matrimony, have promised your love for each other by these vows, the joining of your hands and the giving of these rings, I now declare you to be husband and wife. Congratulations, you may kiss your bride. It is my privilege to present to you Mr. and Mrs. Carroll!
23: Correen to Bret Bret- I am so thankful to have found you and be here with you today. I am marrying my best friend and my soul mate. You always make me smile and you help bring out the best in me. I know we will be there for each other when needed and I promise to cherish you always. I promise to laugh with you in good times and comfort you in bad. I am so happy to have you to grow old together. I love you Bret- you are my one true love. | Bret to Correen Correen... my friend, my sweet, my love, my soul mate. We've grown together and fallen deeper in love as each day has passed over the last seven years. Like some kind of sweet dream I stand here to proclaim the love in my heart and desire in my soul to experience the world and any journey we encounter together hand in hand, heart to heart and souls of one. I love you. | Our vows
