Chris and I wrote our own vows. For obvious reasons, we both considered the vows to be the most important part of the whole ceremony. They were/are extremely personal and important to us (not that either of us finished writing them more than a day before the ceremony). When we said them, we said them to each other, and we meant every word.
Part way through saying our vows someone, ahem, said loudly, “We can’t hear you.”
To which Rev Nurya responded, “They’re not talking to you.”
This has been repeated to me more than anything else as guests’ favorite part of the wedding.
We’ve been considering putting the vows up here, and we will continue to consider it. For now, though, they’ll remain just between us. That is, until one of us gets around to typing them all out. They’re currently handwritten and living in our memory book, where they have been since the wedding.
