Handwritten wedding vows at Landis valley village + Farm museum wedding.
My best friend, my favorite person.
I have loved you since I first held your hand. When we hugged after that movie night and you didn’t let go, I knew right there that I would do whatever it took to marry you. You have always been there for me even when I didn’t deserve it.
I love you so much. I love your natural beauty, I love your perfect smile, I love the weird faces you make, and I love the way you laugh. I love that even to this day when I see you I get butterflies. Karina I vow to be the man that God has called me to be. I vow to always love you even when your feet stink and when you want to watch the Bachelor. I vow to always be your cheese ball and to be your source of heat. I vow to snuggle you as much as possible. I vow to be giving and forgiving. I vow to make you laugh and to laugh at myself.
You are the first person I want to see in the morning and the last at night. I am so blessed that I get to be your forever. I promise to give you my unconditional love until the day death do us part.
My favorite person, my best friend.
As you've been saying, from day one, God has put us together for a reason. I believe that reason is to continually lift each other up and to be a reflection of God's love. For the last five and a half years you have always made it known to me that no matter the circumstances, you will always love me. You have been an incredible light for Jesus and I am so filled with joy to say that I get to be a part of that for the rest of my life.
I promise to cover you in prayer and to lift you up whenever I get the chance to.
I promise to cry when you cry, and to laugh when you laugh. Especially when you are laughing at me laughing at my own jokes.
I promise to leave a few fries on your plate when you order them, and I do not.
And I promise to sacrifice, for the both of us, and always take the bigger half when it comes to desserts.
You are the one whom my soul loves and the man I will choose to cherish for the rest of my days. Together, with Jesus, we will face the triumphs and challenges that life will throw our way. And I could not be more excited to start this journey with you. I love you.
