Key West Vow Renewal Ceremony

When you first joined hands and hearts ___ years ago, you did not know where life would take you. You promised to love, honor and cherish one another through all things. Life has surely brought you both wonderful blessings and difficult challenges. Therefore, you have fulfilled your promise. So, we have come here today to reaffirm those vows and to reflect back over your years together as husband and wife.

Officiant: (Husband/wife), please repeat after me:

I, ______, take you, _____, once again as my husband/wife. I pledge to love and honor you as my beloved; to laugh with you and cry with you: to take care of you through all the seasons of life, for as long as we both shall live.

OPTION ONE (a good choice if you have new rings)
Your rings are the sign of the vows you have made and the promises you are making today. The ring is an ancient symbol, as the circle is considered to be the most perfect form of all forms in nature. As one unbroken circle, your rings symbolize your unending love and commitment to each other.

Officiant: (Husband/wife), please repeat after me:
I give you this ring, as a symbol of our marriage, for yesterday and today, and for all the days to come. Wear this ring as a sign of my love, and as a reminder of our commitment to each other.

OPTION TWO (a good choice if you are using original rings)
On your wedding day you exchanged rings as a symbol of the never-ending circle of love. These rings serve as a reminder of your  vows to each other, and your commitment to live in unity, love and happiness. At this time, reconfirm the meaning of the rings you wear.

Officiant: (Husband/wife), Please take her/his hand, touching the wedding ring and repeat after me:
I placed this ring on your finger ______ years ago. Please continue to wear it as a reminder of our unending love and commitment to each other.

May you always care for each other in all sadness.
and give cheer to each other.
May you give strength to each other in all undertakings.
May your future bring more of the same,
And your love remain strong and true.
May you live long and and happily in each others arms.

Having reaffirmed your love and commitment and proclaimed your intent to continue in the sanctity of marriage, it is now my pleasure to pronounce you, once again....husband and wife. You may now kiss.


Love is patient and kind.
Love is neither jealous nor boastful.
It is not arrogant or rude.
Love does not insist on its own way.
It is not irritable or resentful.
It does not rejoice at wrong,
but rejoices in the right.
Love bears all things, believes all things,
Hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends.

A good marriage must be created.
In marriage the little things are the big things….
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say “I love you” at the end of each day.
It is never going to bed angry.
It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other a safe place in which to grow.
It is not only marrying the right person, it is being the right partner.

True love is a sacrad flame
That burns eternally
And none can dim it's special glow
Or change it's destiny
True love speaks in tender tones
And hears with gentle ear
True love gives with open heart
And true love conquers fear
True love makes no harsh demands
It neither rules nor binds
And true love holds with gentle hands
The hearts that it entwines

The inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words
but pouring them all right out  Just as they are
chaff and grain together  certain that a faithful hand
will take and sift them  keep what is worth keeping
and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away
