A sample of the vows for a Rope Ceremony:
What defines the bride and groom's love today will change and grow to new depth in the future. It takes three seconds to say I love you, but it can take a lifetime to show it.
This ceremony is the celebration of a single stage in a much larger process that is the love between husband and wife. The promises made today and the ties that are bound here greatly strengthen your union.
Bride and Groom, before you exchange your rings, I ask that you perform a ritual which will forever hold in your memory.
I now ask that you both together tie a knot with this rope and as you are doing so, remember that this binding will be steadfast as will be your marriage.
Just as this knot will be hard to undo and separated once tied, so will your marriage be an inseparable union.
Spirit of Love, may Bride and Groom know great love together, and may they live in the desire to always support each other in positive and uplifting ways. May they strengthen one another in sorrow, share with one another in gladness, and be companions to each other in times of silence. May their home be a haven, and wherever they are plagued by changing fortune, may they be united not in word and outward form alone, but by the presence in the hearts of each, of the deepening love they share.
