We each wrote short vows and they took about 45 seconds each and then the officiant read the traditional vows and we just said “I do” at the end.  We’re also not fond of being in front of people but luckily we had only 18 guests and when I was up there it was hard for me to focus on anything other than him and the officiant.

This was our statement of Intent…

do you, with family and friends as your witnesses,
Present yourselves willingly and of your own accord to be joined in marriage? (we do)

Will you promise to care for each other in the joys and sorrows of life,
Come what may,
And to share the responsibility for growth and enrichment of your life together? (we will)

Our  vows

I take you as my friend and my love, beside me and apart from me, in laughter and in tears, in conflict and tranquility, asking that you be no other than yourself, loving what I know of you, trusting what I do not know yet, in all the ways that life may find us

We also wanted very short and to the point.  Took about 15 seconds each to repeat them . 


I (Name), take you, (Name) to be my (husband/wife). I promise to respect and support you, to be patient and loving towards you, to work by your side to achieve the things we value and dream of.
