Today we celebrate the union of two hearts and souls under God in a very special way with the release of butterflies to signify a new beginning for Bride and Groom.
According to an American Indian Legend...
If anyone desires a wish to come true, they must first capture a butterfly and whisper that wish to it.
Since a butterfly can make no sound, the butterfly cannot reveal the wish to anyone but the Great Spirit who hears and sees all.
In gratitude for giving the beautiful butterfly its freedom, the Great Spirit always grants the wish.
So, according to legend, by making a wish and giving the butterfly its freedom. The wish will be taken to the heavens and be granted.
The butterfly symbolizes new beginnings, freedom and happiness.
For just a moment, think silently of what you would wish for Bride and Groom.
We have gathered together to grant this couple all our best wishes and are about to set these butterflies free in trust that all these wishes will be granted.
With the release of these butterflies, Bride and Groom also give remembrance to those loved ones who could not be here with them for this wondrous occasion.
The butterflies will now be released to carry forth the good news of your promise of love and commitment for each other.
