Welcome. We gather here on God's beautiful beach to celebrate the joyful union of this man, (Groom) and this woman, (Bride) in Holy Matrimony.
Today this relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these two individual containers of sand, one representing you, (BRIDE) and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be, and the other representing you, (GROOM) and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be. As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be. May the container of sand be a keepsake of this special day.
This ceremony can be extended to include children. After the bride and groom have poured in their sand, the bride and groom can then collect sand from beneath the feet of each child which the children can then add, thus including them in the newly formed family.
It is up to the bride and groom to purchase the vials necessary for this ceremony.
