Anyway, we both knew we wanted to get married this year and outside. With this year coming to a close and the winter weather rapidly approaching, what better time than now? Right?
This is one of the things I really love about Todd. He is spontaneous too and planning a wedding in 3 days sounded like fun to him as well. Luckily I already had my dress and dressing Todd and Christian was super easy. We made some calls, sent out a bunch of text messages, my mom hooked us up with an awesome mayor that could do it on short notice and ...... Viola! We are now Mr. & Mrs!
The weather was beautiful, our family and friends are truly awesome, and Todd and I are so very happy to continue our life adventures together.
I am framing our vows we wrote so we can see them daily. I loved every word of his and I'm very grateful I found such an amazing man.
Here is what I wrote:
I am marrying you because you are my best friend
I vow to always be your wing man in any and all situations. I love that when one of us gets a crazy idea the other smiles and says, “Let’s do this!”
I appreciate that I can talk to you about anything and you don’t just tell me what I want to hear. I promise to do the same for you.
I promise to give you the best of myself and respect you. I know that we are different enough to grow and learn from one another.
I love that you think I am as funny as I do. It’s very important that we keep each other laughing. I promise to give you a life you can smile about.
You are an amazing man with a huge heart and I know I am blessed to love you.
Through the years you and I are going to change in different ways and at different times, when that happens I will just grab your hand, stand by your side and I know we will conquer it all.
I promise to put your feelings before all others.
And on those days when we may not be getting along or don’t feel as close as we should I want you to know that it’s those days I love you the most. Because I love you for whom you are. I am not marrying to change you, I am marrying you so I can continue to learn about the person you already are.
And the answer to your question is: YES! I do love you more than the dog.
Thank you for keeping me on my toes and being spontaneous. I am committed to give you a life full of fun surprises.
I vow to be your loyal, respectful, wife and best friend from this day forward.
I love you.Ahhhh..... Straight from the heart!
