This is just me, and I’m not exactly an English major (though there are ladies on here that are)…but I think the line “I promise and covenant..” is a little awkward.  I always thought covenant was a noun and not a verb – not sure if there is a verb form.  And it’s also totally possible that I’m completely wrong here.  It just sounded weird when I was reading it.

Otherwise, I think that’s beautiful!

-Have a wonderful and special day!

Lovely, they sound very….ok, try to take these words without the negative connotations, but antique, traditional, and solid. Very tried-and-true, solid vows. Nothing too frilly or fancy, it’s quite beautiful. You could take SouthernTulip’s suggestion, and perhaps word it “I promise this covenant before God” as opposed to promise and covenant. Otherwise, nicely done.

It sounds a lot like like this one our Justice of the Peace gave us:

 

I, (name), take you, (name), to be my [opt: lawfully wedded] (husband/wife), my constant friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward.

In the presence of God, our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as well as in sorrow. I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live.
