Description

The Marriage Vessel and the Rose by Destin Wedding Officiant is a lovely alternative to the Unity Candle for Destin Beach Weddings, Santa Rosa Bech Elopements, or Vow Renewals.

The spiritual roots of the Marriage Vessel and the Rose grow out of an understanding of God as the potter, or creator of life (the vase) And God as the Gardener, or sustainer of life (the rose).

The vessel of clay, lovingly shaped by the potter, is a symbol of love’s strength and endurance. The miracle of the vessel is that it not only protects but is enriched by that which it holds – the rose.

Likewise, the rose born of the tiniest of seeds symbolizes the beauty and potential of growing in love throughout life together. Both the vessel and the rose are individually unique yet when combined they create an object of even greater beauty.

This is a very touching and symbolic ceremony to share! It also holds a promise that every year you celebrate your anniversary you will place a “rose” in the “vase,” to celebrate and remember this moment forever etched in time.

To give you an example of the sentiment of the ceremony, here is a sample:

The Officiant begins by explaining the significance of the ceremony.

The Officiant says: “Groom and Bride have chosen to share two gifts, the Marriage Vessel and the Rose, to symbolize their ever-growing life-long commitment to each other.”

The Groom hands his Bride a long-stemmed rose and says “Bride, take this rose as a symbol of my love.  It began as a tiny bud and blossomed,  just as my love has grown for you.”

The Bride places the rose into a vase filled with water and says “Groom, I take this rose, a symbol of your love,  and I place it into the water,  a symbol of life. For just as this rose cannot survive without water,  I cannot live without you.”

The Groom responds by saying, “In remembrance of this day,  I will give you a rose each year on our anniversary as a reaffirmation of my love and the vows we have spoken here today.

The Bride responds by saying, “And I will refill this vessel with water each year, ready to receive your gift in reaffirmation of the new life you have given me and the vows we have spoken here today.”

The Bride and Groom join hands around the rose-filled vessel and say together, “Just as this rose and vessel of water give beauty and life to each other, so may our love blossom and grow throughout our life together.”
