When you trip over love, it is easy to get up. But when you fall in love, it is impossible to stand again. 

—Albert Einstein

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering.

-Bruce Lee


If I had a flower for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever.

—Lord Alfred Tennyson


When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.

To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow—this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.

Your love, your pledge...

“The bride comes from the heart of dawn, and the bridegroom from the sunset. There is a wedding in the valley. A day too vast for recording.

- Kahlil Gibran

“One half of me is yours, the other half yours- Mine own, I should say; but if mine, then yours, And so also yours."

- Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Your Vow, Your Pledge

There are moments in our lives that are ruled not so much by time but by the heart. This is such a moment. Two people have fallen in love – so deeply, so completely – that today they make a bond, a sacred covenant whereby their hearts, their bodies and their souls shall be united as one in marriage for the rest of their days.

You want your wedding vows to come from the heart and feel just right.

The tender words are stored in the secret heart of heaven. One day like rain they will fall and spread and your mystery will grow green over the world.

– Rumi

The most romantic day of your life!

Your wedding will be, quite simply, the most romantic day of your life. The joy and love you feel for your spouse-to-be, strengthened by the warmth and support of your friends and family, is a feeling you will cherish forever. 

Naturally, many couples want their wedding vows to capture this remarkable romantic spirit and contain words that are cherished forever.

Whether you go all traditional or write your own wedding vows, the words should feel authentic to you and your relationship.  After all, when all is said and done, the wedding may be public but the marriage is deeply personal, just between the two of you.
