We end this ceremony with the African American tradition of jumping of the broom. Slaves in this country were not permitted to marry, so they jumped a broom as a way of ceremonially uniting. Today it represents great joy and at the same time serves as a reminder of the past and the pain of slavery.

As our bride/groom and bride/groom jump the broom, they physically and spiritually cross the threshold into the land of matrimony. It symbolizes the sweeping away of the old and the welcoming of the new; the sweeping away all negative energy, making way for all things that are good to come into your lives. The bride/groom and bride/groom will now begin their new life together with a clean sweep!

Everyone count 1, 2, 3... Jump! Together! 1, 2, 3... Jump!
