The Unity Candle Ceremony

Before they are seated at the start of the ceremony, a member from each family (usually the mothers of the bride and groom) each light a taper candle, signifying their love for the bride and groom. 

These candles are on either side of the unity pillar candle. After the exchange of vows, the bride and groom each take their family's taper candle and light the unity pillar candle together, symbolizing the united love of the couple, and unifying the families as one.

Officiant: "(Groom's Name) and (Bride's Name), as you take the flames from two separate candles, representing your families and your individual lives, know that the center candle you are about to light is a candle of marriage, symbolizing the light of your love. It is a candle of unity because both must come together, giving a spark of themselves, to create the new light. And it is a candle of commitment because it takes two people working together to keep it aflame".

"You may now light the candle. May you love deeply and laugh much. May you see many sunrises, and enjoy many rains. May you dream together, and value the little moments. May you continually discover each other, and may your love grow as you share and listen carefully, open heart to open heart".
