Renewal of Vows Ceremony

Vow Renewal Ceremony

Of all human relationships, none is more important than marriage. Thus, many couples choose to commemorate significant moments on their marital journey. One of the most meaningful can be a Renewal of Wedding Vows, a reaffirmation of the commitment that they made together so many years before. Some couples do it privately, repeating the vows that they made to one another every year on their Wedding Anniversary. Some do it with family and friends in attendance commemorating the event with a special ceremony. For these public celebrations, we are most happy to assist.

As with a wedding ceremony, we know this is a special event to you and just as with the original wedding, we believe that this is YOUR DAY. You are free to use the materials that are most memorable and meaningful to you – vows, readings, scriptures, prayers, etc.. The suggestions found here are simply that – suggestions. As you browse through them, you may find something that meets all your expectations, or you may wish to use part of one plus part of another. Also, you may have seen or heard something not found here but which you would like to include – let us know where we can find it and we will be happy to incorporate that as well.In addition you may include special ceremonies (Unity Candle, Sand Ceremony, Rose Ceremony, etc.) adapted for a Vow Renewal. With any questions or concerns you may have, feel free to contact us. We would love to be able to talk with you and assist in any way possible.

Following a wedding, the happy couple receives a copy of their Marriage License to confirm the new relationship. Following a Vow Renewal ceremony, we provide a certificate (see below) as a public proclamation of the commitment that has been reaffirmed.

Vow Renewal Certificate
Check the calendar below for the date and time of your Renewal Ceremony (and rehearsal) to see if we are available. As we noted above, we are often asked to officiate at more than one ceremony on a particular date. If the logistics work (time and location) feel free to make your request. If there is a problem, we will let you know and assist you in making other arrangements.

Fill out the Ceremony Information Form online and submit it electronically or print out the hard-copy version of the Form, fill it out as appropriate, and mail it to the address provided. We will respond as soon as possible and begin finalizing arrangements for you.
