He takes half a step back, leaving an obvious area around where the couple will stand. He smiles warmly, watching the groom's reaction. As the bride reached her beloved, the officiant took a deep breath and nodded.
He stands before them, smiling brightly at them in joy at the moment. He raises his hands as if to embrace the congregation, and speaks to all.
We have come here in celebration of the joining together of mkkdreams and Duncan. There are many things to say about marriage. Much wisdom concerning the joining together of two souls, has come our way through all paths of belief, and from many cultures. With each union, more knowledge is gained and more wisdom gathered. Though we are unable to give all this knowledge to these two, who stand before us, we can hope to leave with them the knowledge of love and its strengths and the anticipation of the wisdom that comes with time. The law of life is love unto all beings. Without love, life is nothing, without love, death has no redemption. Love is anterior to Life, posterior to Death, initial of Creation and the exponent of Earth. If we learn no more in life, let it be this.
He looks to each, smiling softly and meeting their eyes, ensuring their resolve.
Before we continue, do the both of you enter into this union of your own free will?
