You will observe that there are three candles on the Unity table.
_____ and _____, the two lighted candies symbolize your separate lives, your separate families and your separate sets of friends.
I ask that you each take one candle and that together you light the center candle.
The individual candles represent your individual lives before today. Lighting the center candle represents that your two lives are now joined to one light, your willingness to walk life’s pathways together as one and the joining together of your two families and sets of friends to one. You may now proceed in the lighting of the candle.
