The Unity Cross is a unique way to celebrate the joining of a bride and groom together as one. This multi-piece sculpture is to be assembled during the unity service of the wedding ceremony, representing the joining of two into one. The groom places the outer cross in the wood base. The bride then places the sculpted cross inside the outer cross. The Unity Cross can be displayed in the couple's home after the wedding ceremony as a reminder of their wedding day and the union they share.
God has made each person unique, and each of us is born with special gifts. (Groom’s name) and (Bride’s name), as you bring yourselves closer and closer together, your individuality merges into your union.
(Groom places outer cross into the wood base).
God created man—bold and strong, like the exterior of this cross. The man is defender of the family, yet he is empty and incomplete without the woman.
(Bride picks up her piece of cross)
God created woman, intricately, multi-faceted, and beautifully to support the man taking care of all the things that completes the man.
So they are no longer two, but one.
(Bride and Groom piece cross together) If the cross is the type that uses three golden pegs to lock the union (cross) together in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Therefore, whatever God has joined together, let no man tear apart.
Will everyone please stand and join us in The Lord’s Prayer.
