(Especially appropriate for indoor wedding, the couple each take their own candle and together light a larger candle.
A great symbol – especially when each partner leaves their own individual candle lit as well.
The lighting of the candle often takes place just after the pronouncement of marriage and the kiss)
"From every human being, there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together, and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being."
Baal Shem Tov
"As we light this candle, let it represent the unity of [Name] and [Name] from this moment on. As this one light cannot be divided, neither shall their marriage or lives be divided. May the radiance of this one light be a testimony of your unity."
