Maybe something like this 

Love is the eternal force of life. Love is the force that allows us to face fear and uncertainty with courage. But although you will be sharing one life, never forget that you are two separate people. Cherish and affirm your differences. Love each other. Keep your commitment primary. Together you will laugh and cry, be sick and well, be happy and angry, share and grow. Grow sometimes together, sometimes separately. To symbolize the importance of the individuals within the marriage and the joining of two live into one entity, 3 colors of sand will now be layered into a base

We begin with a layer of  sand which symbolizes that the marriage is grounded.  Bride and groom were loved and supported by their families. Their marriage will be built on the foundations that their family’s have helped them build.  (have parents pour their sand). Then we layer the individual colors. This symbolizes that the marriage is based on the strength of the individuals (Groom pours some of his sand in, followed by bride pouring about the same amount)

Officiate Speaks: And now we combine the color, which symbolized two lives joined as on together forever. (Bride and Groom put sand into large vase so that the colors combine until their jars are empty)

This ceremony was written for a sand ceremony where there is one large vase.  When it is filled it has one color at the bottom for parents, one color for bride, one color for groom and one layer   Of the bride and grooms color mixed.  But you might be able to adjust it to what you want.
