I’m not big into wedding vows that lean so heavily on gloom and doom but I didn’t want to edit too much for content so I left a lot of that in. Changes bolded below:

 

As William Shakespeare wrote in Twelfth Night, “Journeys end in lovers meeting.”

Fiance, when I met you, I knew my journey had ended, because I had found the person I was looking for.

You are my best friend, my lover [cringe-y, I would cut], my partner in life, and now, my husband. I have never loved you more than I do right this moment, and my darling, I know that our love will only continue to grow. I am who I am because of you. You are every dream I have ever had and now you are my reality.

With these vows, our married life begins. The journey ahead of us may be difficult at times but I entrust my heart to you completely. I believe in you and I believe in us.

People say love is a flower and storm will make it bloom into beautiful roses. [who says this? weird, but keep if you want] I don’t think that’s true. I think storm can make the flower stronger, just as difficult times will make our bond stronger, but cherishing and protecting our love is what will make it bloom. So, on this day, the day of our wedding, I promise to love and to cherish you, I promise to be committed to our love in good times and in bad. I promise to stand by you through whatever life may bring

Today, I proudly stand in front of our family and friends, tying my soul, my heart, and my life to yours. Let this wedding ring be a symbol of my love for you – it has start, has a middle, but definitely has no end.

The last sentence doesn’t make sense – rings don’t have a start. I would sub: Let this wedding ring be a symbol of my love for you, of my committment to you, and of the many, many happy years we have ahead.
