- Wedding: June 2012
We’ll be repeatint vows from the judge, however, we did write a portion of it ourselves. Please take a look if there is anything we should change! Thanks in advance!!
David, I remember when we were just starting to date as teenagers and I just loved talking to you and sharing great conversation every single day. I remember staying up all hours of the night hiding in my closet with my cell phone. I remember we talked for so long that sometimes I fell asleep in there. I could never have guessed that those experiences would be the beginning of our journey together.
I knew that you were the person I would marry when I could not picture a life without my best friend in it. I admire your emotional strength, your compassion and kindness and above all your capacity to see the goodness in people. What makes a successful marriage in my opinion is the presence of love, passion, unity, trust, respect and friendship. And from this, I promise to give you my utmost commitment, love and support.
I promise to give you the best of myself; to respect you; to share with you; and to grow with you. I look forward to growing stronger together, starting a family with you, and finally, finally getting a dishwasher. You are my destination. When I am with you, I feel like there is nothing else I have to do and nowhere else I’d rather be. So here I stand today, David, and I promise to love you in good times and in bad – completely and forever, with all of me.
Yvonne, you know I’m not very good at finding the words to express how I feel, which really makes it so much harder because there are not enough words that can adequately describe how much I love you. From the first time we met, I knew you were someone special. You are ambitious and strong. Above all else, you have a kind heart and I love that I can share anything with you.
The time we’ve spent together as kids- going to the movies, hanging out, our road trips, and just enjoying each others’ company – has created some of the best memories of my life. And here we are today, on the happiest day of my life, creating another one with you. I am excited to see what the future holds for us, good or bad, because we are a team; always have and always will be. There is nothing we can’t face or overcome.
You are the woman I want to start a family with and spend the rest of my life with. You also happen to the same person I want sitting next to me after retirement snapping at the neighbourhood kids as they walk by. So I stand here today, Yvonne, and I promise to give you the best of myself; to respect you; to share with you; and to grow with you. I promise to love you in good times and in bad – completely and forever, with all of me.
