our Vow ♥
1.a solemn promise, pledge, or personal commitment: marriage vows; a vow of secrecy. 2.a solemn promise made to a deity or saint committing oneself to an act, service, or condition.
3.a solemn or earnest declaration.
One of the most important things Brandon and I wanted to do for our ceremony was write our own wedding vows. This was something we always talked about and we did just that. I shared with you the sweetest gift Brandon sent me the day of our wedding here. I found it difficult to write my vows because I couldn't keep them short. I wanted to tell Brandon everything I felt, everything he meant to me, everything I loved about him. But we would have been there for weeks. I was nervous. Were my words ok? Would he love them? Then IT hit me...I started to just write on a small piece of paper and I loved the result. I couldn't read them without tears running down my face and I knew they were perfect. Perfect for us.
Brandon and I always tell each other "Love you till the end". always. This is our saying (and the couple's from P.S. I love you). The song from the Pogues is beautiful. It's our saying. and...the most special part about our vows is how we both ended them. When I said it, he started crying and i knew...I knew he would end his the same way and he did. That feeling was magical! and that feeling was the reason I wanted to write our own vows. ♥
What do you guys think about writing your own vows? It's hard if you're emotional. I said his name and started crying. HA!
hope you're all having a great week!
