Unity Sand Ceremony


The Unity Sand Ceremony is a unique way to customize your wedding ceremony and is included in our full-service Full-Service Wedding Packages and can be added to our San Diego Beach Elopement packages.


As the San Diego wedding officiant recites the unity sand reading, the bride and groom simultaneously pour two smaller vessels of colored sand into a larger container, signifying the blending of their two lives into one.


The Family Sand Ceremony is the perfect option for couples with children from previous and current relationships. Symbolizing the unification of all the family members, the family sand ceremony is a fun, low-pressure way to include and recognize the kids.


Our cute, one-of-a-kind seashore & vintage unity sand ceremony jars are created by hand, right here at Seaside Beach Weddings and include a tightly sealed lid for travel. Choose from 21 sparkly colors. Great for photos and the jar of blended unity sand is your keepsake!

Grains of Sand Reading


"You have just sealed your relationship by the giving and receiving of rings. This beautiful union is symbolized through the combining of the two individual containers of sand. The sand closest to BRIDE represents who she is… her personality, individuality, values and all of her life experiences that have made her the woman she is today. The sand nearest GROOM represents who he is… his ideals, thoughts, passion and life trials that have made him the man that stands before us.


Each container holds its own unique beauty, strength, and character. They can stand on their own and be whole, without need of anything else. However when these two are blended together they create a new and extraordinarily more intricate entity. Each grain of sand brings to the mixture a lasting beauty that forever enriches the combination.


Please pour the sand into this common container to symbolize the union of your two lives.


Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be a molding of two individual personalities, bonded together forming one heart and one love. The life that each of you experienced individually, before this moment, will hereafter be inseparably united, for the two become one."

Family Sand Ceremony Reading


"As you have sealed your commitment to each other by the giving and receiving of your wedding rings, you too make a commitment to child(ren) and your family. We lovingly recognize the significant role these children play in this marriage being celebrated today.


Today, this beautiful family relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these individual containers of sand, each representing a member of this family. The separate bottles of sand symbolize your separate lives and experiences. They represent all that you were, all that you are and all that you’ll ever be as individuals.


As these containers of sand are poured into the common united family container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your new family be bonded together as one, forever."
