lizzziehope:  Yes, way too long. Vows are promises. That’s what “vow” means — it’s a solemn promise, not a story, not why you love him, not thanking him or God for anything, it’s what you are promising. Maybe that can help guide you. Just ask yourself, “what am I solemnly swearing to for the rest of my life?” Keep it to 3-5 sentances max. That will kind of force you to get to the essential vows, which is what is needed here.

ETA: The third paragraph (this one:Richie, I have no idea where this journey of life will take us, but it is my privilege and my promise…), although long, would work. The first 2 paragraphs are better suited to a letter you might give him to read the morning of you wedding or maybe later that night. No need to include all of that in the ceremony. I would still try to focus the third paragraph down some, but if you honestly can’t distill that any more, it’s fine as is, but you should start and end there.
