Aloha and welcome to the friends and family of CLIENT and CLIENT!  Mahalo for being here on this special day.

We are gathered together in this beautiful place to celebrate the love between CLIENT and CLIENT by joining them in marriage.

All of us need and desire to love and to be loved and there is no better way to honor that than within the vows of marriage.

CLIENT and CLIENT, your marriage today is the public and legal joining of your souls as one, as they already are in your hearts.

From this day forward, you will share your lives together, standing together as one to face the world, hand-in-hand.

To do this, embrace your strengths and always support each other in good times and in bad.  And always remember to have a sense of humor, even in the worst of times.

Aloha and welcome to this special day, the joining of CLIENT and CLIENT in marriage.

Today is a happy day in a beautiful place, so let all of us join together to celebrate the love of these two people.

Today is not only a day to celebrate the love and happiness of these two people, but to reaffirm and appreciate the love and friendship we all experience in our own lives.

Today, CLIENT and CLIENT come together in mind, body, and spirit.

May they always be open and vulnerable to one another.

May they always approach life hand-in-hand, with a healthy dose of humor to ease the way through the good times and through the bad.

Aloha and welcome to this celebration, the marriage of CLIENT and CLIENT.

Today is a celebration of love, of commitment, of friendship, and of family.

Despite all of our differences, love is the thing that we all share.  It is a universal truth.

No matter who we are, where we come from, or what we believe, love is the one thing that we all share and understand.

And this is why you, CLIENT and CLIENT, are standing here together.  And that is why we are all here to watch you join yourselves in marriage.

The ability to love is the very best part of humanity and today we are all reminded of that.

And even though we all would probably describe what it means to love differently and even though love can look differently from one person to the next, we all know it when we see it.

And we see it here today.

Today, they begin the next step of their lives, facing it together hand-in-hand.

Loving someone and being loved is a gift, a reason to become more for the sake of the other.

Being in love is to look into the soul of another and accept what you see for who and what they are.

As they join their hearts and souls in marriage today, CLIENT and CLIENT are vowing to support and accept each other with love and humor.
