Our Vows

The Groom:

Today In the presence of God, our family and friends
I promise to not just be your husband, but your friend, your lover and your foundation
A foundation that you will never have to question
One that will always be supportive of your needs, interests and desires so help me God
I will always be honest, patient, forgiving and almost always on time
If it hadn’t been for your beauty, your spirit and your values we would not be here today

I say your beauty because it is why I sparked a conversation
I say your spirit because it is why I decided to court you
And finally your values because they are why I trust you with my heart and know without a shadow of a doubt I would not want to be anywhere else than where I am right now
Standing here with you

You make me happier than I could ever imagine and feel more loved than I ever thought possible
I am eager to experience the woman, the wife and the mother you will become
While falling in love with you a little more each day

Now with this ring, I promise to be yours in times of sickness, in times of health
In times of sorrow, in times of joy
In times of failure and in times of success

The Bride:

When God brought you into my life, He answered every prayer I ever prayed, both knowingly and unknowingly. In you I have found a love so true, that’s given me an inner peace and overflowing joy I did not know existed. Since you’ve come into my life you’ve become my best friend, the man I can no longer see my life without. I look forward to our future together, no matter what this life may bring!

With that, I promise to water our love daily with encouragement, support, love, and laughter…to choose you every day always making you a priority making sure you know without question that I love you! I promise to honor, support, and believe in you, your goals, and your dreams; encouraging you to be your best self and not to hinder your spiritual, personal, or career growth. I promise to listen with an open mind and an open heart; being a safe space for all of your secrets and vulnerabilities. From the depth of my being, I vow to love you unconditionally and without reservation, to always be honest with you, and be faithful to you…all that I am I give to you in this life and the next. Knowing what I know of you, trusting in the man you will continue to grow into, where you go, I will go, and where you stay I will stay, your God will be my God; for I have been blessed to find the one whom my soul loves! You are my One and Done and I am yours, forever and ever Amen!
