Some romances are just written in the stars. If the couple is proud of the strong connection they’ve built, they probably want a wedding ceremony script to match. This romantic wedding script will tell their love story beautifully, and can be customized with additional details so no part of the couple's personal fairy-tale goes unmentioned.

Reading

OFFICIANT (to congregation):

In that still and settled place
There’s nobody but you
You’re where I breathe my oxygen
You’re where I see my view
And when the world feels full of noise
My heart knows what to do
It finds that still and settled place
And dances there with you.

—Edward Monkton, That Still and Settled Place
