Emily, I promise to love you, to serve you, to protect you, and to respect you.
Not only will I serve you, I promise to continuously serve with you, build Gods kingdom, and work with you.
Emily I promise to laugh with you, to joke with you, to wrestle with you, let you beat me at badminton, and play guitar for you.
But more seriously I will remain by your side in all seasons of life and I will support you, listen to you, care for you, defend you, and love Jesus with you.
Emily you are my best friend and I’m so happy that I will be able to call you my wife.

I vow to care more about you than about being right.
I promise to love you with my words and my actions.
