Handfasting Opening Verse
Friends and family, we are gathered here to celebrate love in all its forms, but
especially the love that makes a commitment between two people. This kind
of love is not afraid to make promises. It is not afraid to work and to struggle.
It seeks not only to be but to continue. It is based not only on the pleasures of
the present but on the hopes of the future. This is the kind of love that creates
an anchor between two people, one that they can float away from and then
find their way back safely. We celebrate and applaud the love and the
promises of Kristy and Brendon. May they always be a living hope for the
future and for all of us.
