Each Pastor, Priest, Celebrant and Officiant has their own way of executing this special part of your wedding ceremony.  Personally, I am a very positive person.  The way I present shows this:  "The bride and groom would like to take just a moment today to recognize and honor those that have passed on before us.  They honor them for helping to shape their character, mold their spirits and help make them into the beautiful couple you see here today.  Would you pause with us for just a moment in remembrance of these special people."

The bride and/or groom may also want to have me read a list of names.  I am absolutely happy to honor them for you.

Some couples also choose to have remembrance table as well.
