A Very Special Wedding Reading

Filed under: Wedding Readings — Larry James @ 7:00 am

Brides and Grooms will often request to have Larry James include a romantic poem, prayer, song lyrics (read as a poem) or reading to his “romantic” wedding ceremony. One couple recently had Larry add the following words just after he said, “Please face each other, holding hands?”

“These hands holding yours on your wedding day are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever.

edwardsThese are the hands that will work along side yours, as together you build your future.

These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years and, with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other.

These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind.

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 help you to hold your family as one and that will give you strength when you need it.

And lastly, these are the hands that, even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching out for yours.”

  1. […] When the couple walks up the aisle, the bride is usually on the left and whoever is escorting her is on the right. Once the groom takes his place next to the bride their backs are to the guests. In my “romantic” wedding ceremony after about 6 minutes into the presentation of the ceremony they are asked to face each other holding hands. […]
