The intended couple come together with the intentions of proclaiming their love for each other. Together, they release a single butterfly to carry forward their proclamations of love to the world. Family and friends, each release a single butterfly of their approval of the engagement of the young couple and upon their wings is carried forward their blessings and hopes for the young couple’s future.



“Yesterday a butterfly, Came floating gently through the sky.
He soared up through the atmosphere, Then drifted close enough to hear.

I said, “I’d love to fly with you, And sail around the way you do.
It looks like it would be such fun, To fly up toward the summer sun.

But I have not your graceful charm. I haven’t wings, just these two arms.
I’ve been designed to walk around. My human feet must touch the ground.

Then magically he spoke to me and told me what his wish would be.

He said, “What I’d love most to do, Is walk upon God’s Earth with you,
To squish it’s mud between my toes, Or touch my finger to my nose.

I’d love just once to walk around, With human feet to touch the ground,
But I have not two legs that swing, I haven’t arms, just these two wings.”

And so we went our separate ways, In wonder and surprise.
For we’d both seen God’s precious gifts, Through someone else’s eyes.”

Friendless and all alone, On this unsweetened stone.

Now let my bed be hard, No care take I;
I’ll make my joy like this Small Butterfly;
Whose happy heart has power, To make a stone a flower.

By William H. Davies. Louis Untermeyer, ed. (1885–1977). Modern British Poetry. 1920.


“He said that we belonged together because he was born with a flower and I was born with a butterfly and that flowers and butterflies need each other for survival.”
Gemma Malley

“My brain is divided into two butterflies, and both are in love with your rose-shaped heart. If you’ve got the garden, I’ve got my whole life.”
Jarod Kintz

“Love is a peaceful feeling, like a flower hugging a butterfly.”
Jarod Kintz
