Writing your own wedding vows…when I mention that to couples, some jump in enthusiastically, while others absolutley freeze up! Actually, the process of writing your own vows give you a lot to think about and really, should be done over time and not rushed. It is a deepening process…why are you marrying this wonderful man or woman? What are the qualities in your sweetheart that you adore? How has your life changed since you have each other as part of it…how would your life be without each other ?
One really good resource I discovered was The Ultimate Wedding Vow Toolkit. At first, it seems pretty commercial…a tool kit? But, I decided to order one for myself and I have to say it is impressive when you read through it. It is thourough, organized and has built-in templates to help you put just the right thoughts in just the right places. I do give my couples vow options from which to choose…I invite them to edit as they please, but I have to say, the couples who do take on the challenge of writing their own vows give each other the most precious gift…one that money really can’t buy. You might give it a try…they guarantee your satisfaction and think of the satisfaction you will give your sweetheart by taking the time and effort to create your own, original vows.

The Bride and Groom grinned and laughed and teared up in all the right places as they took their vows in the intimate setting by my fireplace. It was an honor to perform the wedding for Latrica and Christopher as Latrica’s mother and a few close friends stood witness. Later on they hope to have a much larger affair…and perhaps I will do their vow renewal. My best wishes go to this happy couple !
Sometimes a small wedding is just right. And sometimes, during the week works out just fine. Such was the case yesterday, December 3, at about 2:30 PM when Lindsey & John became husband and wife in my home. A few close friends were present along with their children and Lindsey’s mother. It was a sweet wedding with the sounds of children filling the room as these two immersed themselves in the vows they were taking.
John anxiously awaited the arrival of his bride, you could tell he was so excited and when she made her entrance, he couldn’t take his eyes off her.
Congratulations to these two as they begin their new life together. They’ll do just great!
I do ask everyone to turn off their cell phones before I begin…and I hope this couple agreed on this stunt before they said their vows…otherwise, they could be looking for a Divorce Ceremony in the future. You’ll have to click the link then click the video in the new story to see for yourself.
We all like to laugh…and I enjoy laughter in weddings…but sometimes it goes too far. I remember one wedding where when it was time for the groom to kiss his bride, he turned to smooch his best man first…to be funny. What he didn’t see was how crushed his bride was that he couldn’t have a serious moment. Sometimes funny isn’t funny.
