Once in awhile, I’m inspired by a couple to write a piece to go into their wedding ceremony as a reading. Last weekend was one of those moments. Whitney and Sahmon have shared many magical times around a fire pit. As their wedding neared, I started thinking about just the right piece to put between their vows and rings. Not finding ‘the one’ reading inspired me to write The Fire Pit. Sahmon and Whitney, thank you for your inspiration and for selecting me as your Wedding Officiant. 

Hudson Valley Officiant - Write Your Own Vows

The Fire Pit by Rev. Lisa Zaro

A frolicking fire holds incredible energy
It performs a magnificent dance that can make your heart melt
It warms you not only by the flames, but by the invitation it extends to family and friends
The blaze glows beautifully as loved ones encircle it
Cozy up to the bright burn tonight
Grab a blanket and make s’mores
Hold each other
Linger ‘til the embers fade
Be the last to go inside
This time will be different
Tonight, you will turn in from the deep blue night as husband and wife
