Love Letter and Wine Box
Sophia and Michael have chosen as a couple to have a Love Letter & Wine Box ceremony.
This box contains a bottle of wine and a love letter from each to the other.
The letters describe the good qualities they find in one another, the reasons they fell in love, and their reasons for choosing to marry.
The letters are sealed in individual envelopes and they have not seen what the other has written.
You have created your very own "romantic" time capsule.
I recommend that you keep the box in a place of honor prominently displayed in your home as a constant reminder of your commitment to each other.
Sophia and Michael , should you ever find your marriage enduring insurmountable hardships, you are to as a couple, open this box, sit and drink the wine together, then separate and read the letters you wrote to one another when you were united as a couple in marriage.
By reading these love letters you will reflect upon the reasons you fell in love and chose to marry each other here today.
The hope is, however, that you will never have a reason to open this box.
And that you are able to save the opening of the box until your tenth anniversary to celebrate the strength of your love and bond of your marriage. At that time you can replace the bottle of wine and write new love letters to each other to seal in the box for the 20th anniversary.
Sophia and Michael , you may now seal the box.
