Unity Sand Ceremony

________ and ________, you have just sealed your relationship by the giving and receiving of rings and this covenant is a relationship pledge between two people who agree that they will commit themselves to one another throughout their lives. The most beautiful example of this partnership is the marriage relationship.

You have committed here today to share the rest of your lives with each other. Today. Your relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these two individual containers of sand, one representing you Denny and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be, and the other representing you, Karen, and all that you are, and all that your were, and all that you will ever be.

As these two containers of sand are poured into the their container, the individual containers of sand will no loner 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.
