Sample Civil Ceremony

The following is the ceremony performed for couples who select a Civil Ceremony. This should not be confused with a New Jersey Civil Union ceremony.

Introduction
We have come here today to witness the marriage of {Groom} and {Bride}. The legal requirements of this state having been fulfilled, and the license for their marriage being present, I must ask of each party if they come of their own free will and accord.

{Groom}, do you come to this union of your free will, and with the intention of being faithful in marriage to {Bride} as long as you shall live?

Groom answers "I do."

{Bride}, do you come to this union of your free will, and with the intention of being faithful in Marriage to {Groom} as long as you shall live?

Bride answers "I do."

Marriage Vows:
Please repeat the following after me:
I, {Groom}, do take you, {Bride}, to be my lawfully wedded wife. I promise from this day forward to be your faithful husband, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, as long as I shall live.

Please repeat after me:
I, {Bride}, do take you, {Groom}, to be my lawfully wedded husband. I promise from this day forward to be your faithful wife, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, as long as I shall live.

Ring Vows
The wedding ring seals the vows of marriage as a signature that bears witness to a written covenant. As the ring is placed upon the finger, will you repeat these words:

{Bride}, in pledge of the vow of marriage made between us, I offer you this ring. Let it be  the symbol of the covenant of marriage we have accepted.

{Groom},
in pledge of the vow of marriage made between us, I offer you this ring. Let it be the symbol of the covenant of marriage we have accepted.

We have come together in this place and have heard the willingness of {Bride} and {Groom} to be joined in marriage. They have come of their free will and in our hearing have made a covenant of faithfulness. They have given and received a ring as the seal of their promises.

Therefore, by the power vested in me by the state of New Jersey I pronounce that {Groom} and {Bride} are husband and wife.

You may seal your promises with a kiss.
