We did our own vows. I just typed them up to frame for our bedroom, so I’ll share ours… I wanted mine to be a little more lighthearted and he totally surprised me with how perfect his vows were!


I vow to be the rock you lean on when you need to find your footing and to be the soft place you turn to when you need comfort.

 I vow to provide the support you need as you pursue your dreams, and to share your joy when you achieve them.

 I vow to lead you when you look for direction, stand beside you when you’re confronted by obstacles, and follow you through each of life’s journeys.

 More than anything, I vow to choose you, each day, before me. To love you before myself, and to spend the rest of my life making sure you are protected, appreciated, and loved. 


I can’t believe this day is actually here. It’s been a long, sometimes hard, journey, but I wouldn’t change a single moment because it has led me to where I am- standing before you giving you everything I have been, everything I am, and everything I will be.

 I’m going to leave shoes on the floor, I’m going to make a mess when I cook, and my makeup and jewelry will never be put away, but I promise to spend every day of the rest of my life making it worth it because no one can love you better, stronger, longer, or morester than I do.

 I give myself wholly over to you- mind, body, heart, and soul. I love you and am so excited to start his journey as your wife.

@hma812:  Thank you! I tease him now that I totally did it right. Anytime he complains about my shoes, I tell him that I vowed to leave them there and am just following my vows!!
