I, Elyssa, take you, Chriselle, to be my wife, my best friend, and my love. I vow to encourage you and to support you; to hear you and see you. I vow to make you laugh when you need to laugh and hold you when you need to cry. I love your determination, your immeasurable patience, and your unapologetic geekiness. You bring out the best in me and embrace the worst. Together, we make a very weird, very beautiful little family. I am yours in all things. This I vow to you.
Fifteen years ago, when I was just fourteen and in 9th grade, I first listened to Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer and imagined… someone. A girl, nameless, faceless. We held hands in my daydreams, maybe danced together under twilight skies and string lights. I wasn’t sure who she was or what I wanted from her – I wouldn’t know for another eleven years, but in all that time she never left my thoughts.
Just yesterday, I walked down the aisle with that girl to this song at our wedding. Why I am so blessed to have found her I will never know; all I know is that I have been given the chance to share my life with her and will do everything in my power to make our shared life something beautiful. I never imagined myself dating, let alone getting married to my soul mate and building a weird, loving little family together. I don’t know what the future holds, but I know we’ll face everything together with trust, kindness, and a dash of cynical humor.
I’ve been so happy for you two since you blogged about the engagement rings… This is such happy news! Congratulations. I love that you walked down the aisle to such a pretty song. I have always loved that song. Out of curiosity are you on the left or the right in the photo?
Congratulations to you and your love. May you have many, many healthy, happy years together. It’s the simple things, the everyday things that will make you the most content.
– signed 1/2 of a couple who’ve been together over fifteen years, but just got married last year. (was the whole same-sex marriage thing that got in the way of the legal recognition of what our hearts already knew)
Such a great love song.
Congratulations! Blessings to you two on your special day. Your vows are absolutely beautiful.
Congratulations! You’re both looking awesome and happy 😀
Congratulations to both of you~
congrats! That’s so awesome!
Awww!!! Congrats!!!! I’m so happy for you!
Congratulations! This is so sweet!
I am not gay, however, this is awesome. Love is love. No person has the right, be they gay or straight, to mandate on another person to live the same lifestyle. For the homophobes out there, here is some free advice: Keep your bigotry to yourself.
Wow this is beautiful ! You have gained a follower in hopes of you following my blog !!
Yeah girls!!! Like it :)
Thank you!! :)
I don’t even get why marriage is even used as a talking point.
Like, in general? Or here specifically? Cause this is kinda my blog.
Yes, in general and in the U.S. as a whole. Get the government out of the matter. Government should only acknowledge civil unions.
Happy Valentines day from the future.
Aww, thank you!
So very beautiful – Congratulations! <3
Thank you so much!! :)
