Jeremy, we’ve told each other very early on that we don’t need each other. We can function just fine without each other, but we’ve found in the last few months, that it’s better when we’re together. I don’t need you, but I WANT you. Life is so much better together.
You are the most patient and least judgmental man I’ve ever met. You are kind and caring. You are dependable, yet full of surprises. You make me laugh, you make me think, you encourage me, you support me, you hold me when I cry, you tell me I’m beautiful when I struggle to look in the mirror, you humor me in all my craziness, and you love me unconditionally, even when I’m being emotional for no good reason. You are my very best friend, and I’m completely and totally in love with you.
I can’t believe how lucky I am to have been sealed to you for time and all eternity earlier today. We made sacred covenants that I will remember and cherish always. I know that today seems like the most magical and important day we’ll ever share, but I can’t wait to build on it.
Jeremy, I promise to always scratch/rub your back when we’re sitting in church. I promise to cuddle with you and play with your hair when we watch movies or binge watch a series on Netflix. I promise to always hide in your chest during a scary part. I promise to find some way to make you laugh every day. I promise to tell you I love you every day. I promise to push you out of your comfort zone every so often. I promise to encourage you and be your cheerleader and support. I promise to burn dinner at least once. I promise to listen to your advice, and occasionally take it. I promise to never keep score… even if I’m totally winning. I promise to always admire your strong, kind, and determined heart. I promise to listen, for as long as it takes for you to feel heard. I promise to watch in awe as you take life head on. I promise to laugh at your jokes… most of the time. I promise to hold your hand. But more importantly, I promise to love you. Every day. No matter what.
Well…. this has been a wild journey for us hasn’t it? From our first date 3 years ago to today, our wedding day. My feelings for you have changed a lot. From I like you to we are just friends, back to liking you and finally to loving you.
As you know, I’m not the best at explaining myself so let me try to be a little better today. You ask my why I love you, well…. here is your answer.
