1: We sat down at the table and I just stared at you. The words wouldn't come. All I could manage was "hi." Then you looked at me and said, "it's really good to see you." I melted into my chair. You have the most striking blue eyes. I couldn't look at you for too long before I would avert my gaze. I was so nervous. | Our story.
3: It's a beautiful thing. So many people wander or settle and never find their soul mate. Everything happens for a reason. I know that you and I met for a purpose. Some say it was chance, opportunity or even fate. But what's meant for you will never pass you by.
6: Our vows. From this moment, I, John, take you Jennifer, as my wife. I vow to you the first cut of my meat, the first sip of my wine. From this day, it shall be only your name I cry out in the night and into your eyes that I smile each morning. I shall be a shield for your back, as you are for mine. Not a grievous word be spoken about us, For our marriage is sacred between us and no stranger shall hear my grievance. Above and beyond this, I will cherish and honour you through this life and into the next.
7: Sean, my life was forever changed the day I met you. Since that day, every choice, change and challenge was guided by my deep love for you and a promise that we would one day celebrate our commitment to each other in marriage. Today is that day. I call upon the persons here present to witness that I, Jennifer, take you John, to be my husband. I promise to remain by your side, in sickness and in health, through the good times and the bad. I will love you without reservation, comfort you in times of sadness and encourage you to achieve your goals. I will grow with you in mind and spirit. I will always be open and honest with you and I will be faithful and true to you for as long as we both shall live.

28: i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) i am never without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling) i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true) and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than the soul can hope or the mind can hide) and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart) e.e. cummings
