Today we Celebrate Love in a very special way with the release of butterflies to signify a new beginning for ________ and ________.

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 ________ and ________.

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.

The butterflies will now be released to carry forth the good news of your promise of love and commitment for each other.

NOTE:  This ceremony can be edited as needed.

Release Butterflies while Minister reads the following


Learn to Fly
Written by Larry James

Like a butterfly emerges
And unfolds its graceful wings,
A marriage grows and it develops
With the love each partner brings.

Your flight through life together
Is what you make it, so reach high
Spread your wings and learn to soar
As if with wings of a butterfly

Share together life's great adventure
Now the two of you are one
Shower your lover with butterfly kisses
Your infinite journey has just begun

Be a lover, friend and playmate
Learn to listen, laugh and cry
God has given you your wings,
But, you teach each other how to fly.
