So I thought it was only appropriate to share the vows Jr. Stac and I exchanged on August 15, 2009–the best day of my life so far.
I went first…
Throughout our life together, I promise I will do all that I can to make sure we live the best life possible.
I will be silly and cute, smart and responsible, loving and romantic.
I promise to support you in your endeavors, and to help you reach your goals.
I promise to make every decision with your best interests in mind, to put your happiness before mine, and to not let one moment pass without appreciating the amazing bond we share.
I promise to always be on your side, to defend you, to protect you from anything bad. And if I can’t, I promise to hold you and console you.
I promise you will always be my one and only.
I make these vows because I love you so much. (This is where I totally lost it.) You are the love of my life, my soul mate, and the man of my dreams.
I am endlessly overwhelmed by the love you have for me and I promise I will do everything I can to make sure I live up to your perfection. Thank you for choosing me.
I love you.
I know mine were a little cliche but it really all came from the heart so I went with it. Jr. Stac’s are more creative. Which didn’t surprise me considering he is a great writer.
I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health; I will love and honor you all the days of my life.
I promise to always stand by your side, and to watch with you in awe as our lives ebb and flow;
I promise to celebrate with you when love comes easy, and to toil with you when it requires some effort;
I promise to protect you in body and mind, and shelter you from fear;
I promise to share your hopes and dreams, and to work to make them real;
I promise to honor our past, and to embrace the uncertainties of the future;
I promise to never reshape you in a different image, for you are already perfectly beautiful;
I promise to strive to make our little lives a little more fun;
I promise to bring you roses, when you ain’t got none; (This got a laugh from the crowd)
And I promise to be, and remain, your very best friend.
