Hands of the Bride & Groom Ceremony

April 6, 2017

The Hands of the Bride and Groom ceremony is a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony that is guaranteed to not to leave a dry eye among the couple and guests alike.

The Ceremony explains the importance of the hands of the bride and groom while the bride and groom are simply facing each other while holding hands. This beautiful addition to your ceremony can be done as a secular or religious ceremony for both a wedding and a vow renewal.

I asked you to join hands as a symbol of the union that you are making here today.

I’d like you to think about the hands that you are holding.

These are the hands of your best friend holding your hands on your wedding day promising to love you and to work together as you build your future together.

These are the hands that will give you Strength when you need strength

Tenderness when you need tenderness

And love when you need love.

These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes, tears of sorrow and tears of joy.

These are the hands that will hold all those whom you love.

These are the hands that years from now will still be searching for your hands, still seeking the love, encouragement and support that each of you seeks from the other.

And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.


"Christina was great to work with. Planning a Florida beach wedding from Indiana would have been very difficult for us. Christina put everything together including the location, the officiant and the photographer as well as offering great ideas and additions to our ceremony. Every email was answered right away and each change was accommodated. Our ceremony was EXACTLY what we wanted. I highly recommend Weddings By Christina!"   ~   Read More »
