22: Bryan, I am so thankful that you are in my life. I hoped and prayed for someone who would love and support me, but am still daily amazed by your kindness, generosity, humor, and support. I recently read something about relationships, and the person said “A lot of people have a misconception that marriage is the culmination of a relationship. Far from it. Marriage is a constant process of finding the best possible way to connect with another person.” I found that idea so meaningful because I already feel like we attempt to do that and am excited that this promise we are making today reflects that. I am so thankful to have the opportunity, in front of those who mean so much to us, to express the depth of my love for you, and promise to give you the best of me. I will support you, love you, and stand by your side for the rest of our days.
23: When people think about “traditional” wedding vows, they most often think about the “promise” and “commitment” that one makes—to the one person they love most. The “promise” is to honor, cherish, embrace, and love. The “commitment” is through good times and in bad—through sickness and in health—until death shall we part. The words by themselves are easy to say, but the actions take a lifetime to achieve. That is why, I, Bryan Theodore Haag, have chosen Kelly Amber Johnson, to be my partner, my best friend, my bride, and my wife. Because she understands—without saying a word—that the vows I speak of today are simply an extension of our daily lives. And as days turn into years, my “promise” and “commitment” will only grow stronger. Even though I know I can never be as good to my Kelly as she is to me, I will give my best effort. So on this day—the happiest day of my life to date, in the presence of my family—both mine and Kelly’s—and as God is our witness, I make the “promise” and “commitment” to be the best partner, friend, and husband that I can be.
