1: THE MARRIAGE OF | Chris & Amanda Solis | 05.14.2011
2: My Darling Chris, Four years ago we started out on an amazing adventure of life and love.
3: Our relationship wasn't always easy but by the grace of God our love was made stronger .
4: We are here now as a testament of that love.
5: James 1:17 says "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,...
6: ...coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. " Apart from my salvation, you are the most precious gift God has given me...
7: ...and today I give you the most precious gift I can give. I stand in front of you now before God and our family and friends to give to you my solemn vow.
8: I choose you, Chris Solis, to be my husband, my best friend, my dance partner and my one true love.
9: I promise you my deepest love, my fullest devotion and my most tender care....
10: through the pressures of the present and the uncertainties of the future.
11: I know that along with the new joys God has given me, I face new responsibilities that I cannot fulfill in my own strength
12: But by God's grace and power working in me, I desire to be trustworthy as your wife...
13: ...to serve and love you in all circumstances, to obey you and to allow God to use you to build His qualities in me.
14: As I have given you my hand to hold, I give you my life to keep as long as God gives us life on this earth.
15: My Beloved Amanda, God has indeed blessed the broken road I've walked on that has ultimately led me to you.
16: So many things in my life could have turned out differently if I had my way...
18: ...but God knew better about what I needed in my life and had plans that slowly led me to you.
19: Every day with you has been a blessing, and I am thankful to Him for bringing you into my life.
20: I have a feeling He brought us together because He knew that even if I could charm you, which even I'm not quite sure how...
21: ...the only way I could win your heart and keep it was if I turned to Him to lead me and guide me and surrender my all...
22: ...to Him. It amazes me every day how God could have made someone so perfect for me, who has met my every need and want.
23: Your selfless love has become my solace, my comfort. It is with you in my arms that I feel the most at peace, the most at ease.
24: You are such a wonderful, beautiful, graceful person.
25: Mr. & Mrs. Solis | It is your love of God that initially led me to seek Him.
26: Finally Married! | You give me strength because you believe in me.
27: It is that faith in me that makes me want to make our dreams as much a reality as possible.
28: You in essence complete me, you complement me in everything we do.
29: Without you I would be half the man I am, and would never be the complete man I want to be.
30: I am the best man that I can be when I am with you, and with you I have all I want and need in my life.
31: Amanda, I Love You. These three words more than ever carry in them my hopes for our future...
32: ...my happiness in my present with you and my thankfulness for things past that made us who we are to and for each other.
33: And so today, more than I ever have before, but not necessarily more than I will tomorrow or 50 years from now, I promise:
34: To love you selflessly and unconditionally - not just in words alone, but more importantly in action.
35: To pledge my life to you as Christ did for His Church - to put you above myself, with God being first and foremost.
36: To be fully devoted and faithful to you, and to lead our lives into one that would be pleasing to God.
37: It only takes a second to say "I Love You" but it takes a lifetime to show it. ~TERESA COLLINS | To honor you and respect you, to be one with you as God has intended for us to be.
38: To care for you and comfort you and be there to catch you whenever you fall.
39: To encourage you, inspire you and grow in faith and love with you.
40: To never stop pursuing you and always want to dance with you, even when we're old and not as cool on the dance floor anymore.
41: From now and forevermore, all these things I promise you, whether times be good or bad, in sickness and in health...
42: Dance With Me Forever
