Ceremony Readings for a long distance couple

Searching high and low for meaningful readings for a long distance couple. We'd prefer something that wasn't in the Bible as we aren't religious we would also like something not overly cliche (We are giving Corinthians a pass) Thanks for your suggestions !!!

  • Not sure if this is what you were going for but here's some links to some pages I found that have some really nice readings on them. You may be able to use it as a guidelines and change it a little to fit what you want.

  • We used this.. 

    “Union” by Robert Fulghum


    If this reading is before the vows (the first reading):

    You have known each other from the first glance of acquaintance to this point of commitment. At some point, you decided to marry. From that moment of yes to this moment of yes, indeed, you have been making promises and agreements in an informal way. All those conversations that were held riding in a car or over a meal or during long walks — all those sentences that began with “When we’re married” and continued with “I will” and “you will” and “we will” — those late night talks that included “someday” and “somehow” and “maybe” — and all those promises that are unspoken matters of the heart. All these common things, and more, are the real process of a wedding.

    The symbolic vows that you are about to make are a way of saying to one another, “You know all those things we’ve promised and hoped and dreamed — well, I meant it all, every word.”

    Look at one another and remember this moment in time. Before this moment you have been many things to one another  — acquaintance, friend, companion, lover, dancing partner, and even teacher, for you have learned much from one another in these last few years. Now you shall say a few words that take you across a threshold of life, and things will never quite be the same between you. For after these vows, you shall say to the world, this is my husband, this is my wife.
