Vows

At the heart of every wedding ceremony are the vows; the promises that the bride & groom make to each other; promises made to love, honor, and cherish each other until death. There is no right or wrong way to approach this aspect of the ceremony. Some couples prefer to have the traditional vows read to them (and they repeat them), others prefer to read traditional vows themselves to each other, others prefer to write their own vows to be read to each other, and still others simply speak directly from their hearts without any pre-written vows.

No matter which you choose, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you give a copy of your vows to your minister. In the event that either of you are overcome by emotion, the minister can step in and help you complete your vows.

Below are some sample vows

Vows #1:

I, [GROOM], take you, [BRIDE], to be my partner in life.
I promise to walk by your side forever
And to love, help and encourage you
In all that you do.
I will take time to talk with you
To listen to you
And to care for you.
I will share your laughter and your tears
As your partner, lover and best friend.
Everything I am and everything I have is yours
Now and forevermore

[BRIDE], please repeat after me.

On this our wedding day.

So I give you my life to keep.
