Unique Readings for Weddings

Set your ceremony apart! Personalize your programs or equip your reader with a unique reading that reflects your relationship and wedding style. Go funny. Be serious. Be unique.

A soul mate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise. Our soul mate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person. Our soul mate is the one who makes life come to life.
- Richard Bach, The Bridge Across Forever

I have for the first time found what I can truly love—​I have found you. You are my sympathy—​my better self—​my good angel; I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my center and spring of life, wraps my existence about you—​and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.
- Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eye

Once for all, I knew to my sorrow, often and often, if not always, that I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be. Once for all; I loved her none the less because I knew it, and it had no more influence in restraining me, than if I had devoutly believed her to be human perfection.
- Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Lord, behold our family here assembled. We thank you for this place in which we dwell, for the love that unites us, for the peace accorded us this day, for the hope with which we expect the morrow, for the health, the work, the food, and the bright skies that make our lives delightful; for our friends in all parts of the earth. Amen.
- Robert Louis Stevenson, Wedding Prayer

There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.
- Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Unique Wedding Quote: To love a person is to see all of their magic, and to remind them of it when they have forgotten.
