"Now, Taylor & Blake will commemorate their marriage by the pouring of the unity sand to symbolize the union of their lives and their families. From now on their thoughts shall be for each other, and joys and sorrows shall be shared alike. By leaving a small amount of sand in their own containers, they also accept that although they are joined as one, each remain individuals and keep their own unique personalities.
"Taylor & Blake, you have just sealed your marriage by the joining of hands, the exchanging of vows, and the giving and receiving of rings. This covenant is a pledge between two people who agree that they will commit themselves to one another throughout their lives. You have committed here today to share the rest of your lives with each other.
"Today, your marriage is symbolized through the pouring of these two individual containers of sand into one. One container representing you, Blake, and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be; and the other container representing you, Taylor, and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be.
"As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into their individual containers, so will your marriage be."
