Unity Ceremonies symbolize the intertwining of two unique individuals into a partnership, a blending of lives, families and friends into a joined union. There are many versions of this, but one unique way is through the medium of glass. Nicole and Andy, you will combine different colored glass crystals, the colors represent each of you and the color you bring to your relationship.
As you each pour the contents within your own vase into the middle vase together, the glass from each individual vase is blended together. This symbolizes the joining of your separate lives into one union, the beginning of your journey as husband and wife.
Together you are creating a new life through the blending of your personalities, hopes, and dreams. You are creating something unique to just the two of you. In the coming days, the colorfully mixed pieces of glass will be made into a one-of-a-kind glass sculpture that is as special and unique as your relationship. This new sculpture will forever hold the promises made here today. Displayed in your home, it will be a physical reminder of your love and commitment to each other, never to be separated again, so may your marriage be. As with your marriage…. this vase will require great care. Cherish it, polish it, protect it from any harm. Keep from it that which can break it, or chip away at it, and it will remain a thing of beauty.
