Unity Cross Ceremony

March 18, 2016

The Unity Cross Ceremony is a unique way to celebrate the joining of a bride and groom together as one. It is a beautiful sculpture that is assembled during the wedding ceremony symbolizing a bride and groom becoming ONE in the body of Christ.

The groom places the outer cross in the wood base. The bride then places the sculpted cross inside the outer cross. The Unity Cross can be displayed in the couple's home after the wedding ceremony as a reminder of their wedding day and the union they share. The Groom places the outer Cross in the beautiful wood base as the Minister explains how God created man to be Bold, Strong and the Defender of the family, yet he is empty and incomplete without the woman. The Bride then places the more delicate cross inside of the Grooms cross as the Minister explains how God created Woman to be Delicate, Multi-faceted and taking care of all the little things that completes the man, and the Two Shall Become One. The Bride and Groom then use the 3 pegs to lock the union (cross) together, symbolizing the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as the Minister exclaims that "What God has brought together let no man take apart".

Like the Unity Candle, the Unity Cross portion of the ceremony can include the family. The two mothers can bring both sections of the cross to the Minister for them to be united. Some couples also like to include their children in the ceremony. The Bride and Groom assemble their part of the Cross and the Children are invited to put the pegs in to complete the sculpture. 

Another nice feature of the Cross is that is has a drawer. You can place your vows in the drawer and then on your first anniversary (which is the paper anniversary), read your vows to each other. This will help you remember the special day when  your hearts and souls were joined as one before God.  This can be a tradition for all your anniversaries. It is beautiful that the very Unity Cross that was used in  your ceremony will have a significant part in your home for years to come and in each anniversary thereafter.

"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 »
