our Vow ♥

Photobucket

vow/vaʊ/
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!
xoxo

I wanted to do this soooo badly but then the wedding got so close & we just didn't have the time. I'm a little disappointed in us, that we didn't make the extra effort, but nevertheless we're still married all the same.

Not having our own vows is one of two things I would change about my wedding day. If we ever have a vow renewal or something we're TOTALLY writing our own! :o)

that was one thing i really wanted to, i'm so glad matt and i wrote our own vows. and we wrote them separate of each other and they ended up so much alike it was awesome. and for as emotional as i am i somehow didn't cry, it was a wedding day miracle, haha.

i think this is so incredible! mr. taylor and i did our own vows, we didn't write any of it down, we just said what came to us at the moment. but either way, i think this is the best thing to do. adore!!

How sweet. I think we will write our own - mainly beacuse i think anything not written or at modified by you as a couple are now YOUR vows.

I want to write my own, but I'm worried about it being too long too. haha. How can I say everything soooo shortly ;) But i will definitely do it!
