Sam and Lauren live thousands of miles apart, but as soon as they met they realized there was a serious, deep connection. It can be scary to just dive right in and let yourself go completely to someone you’ve known for so little time, but they have more than showed their love and commitment. To go through this kind of hardship makes your bond and your love even stronger, and to honor this bond, Lauren and Sam chose the Handfasting ritual.
As this knot is tied, so are your lives now bound.
Woven into this cord, imbued into its very fibers, are all the hopes of your friends and family, and of yourselves, for your new life together. With the fashioning of this knot I tie all the desires, dreams, love, and happiness wished here in this place to your lives for as long as love shall last.
