A couple weeks ago our contact at BridalGuide.com reached out and told me that she was doing a feature on couples that wrote their own vows and asked if we had any couples that had written their own vows that we would like to feature? "I promise to love you my hardest..." reverberated over and over in my head. I let her know that I did, but I needed to first contact my couple to make sure they were okay sharing this intimate moment with the world. I was lucky enough to get Lindsey on the phone right away when I called and she just happened to have the vows stored safely away. She sent me a photo of the handwritten vows, I typed them up and worked with Linda Chaja Photography to pick a couple photos that shared the emotion from their ceremony.
Writing your own wedding vows isn't an easy task, but it is very rewarding. You get to make your own personal and very special promises. Usually there are a few giggles and a couple tears, but we find that personal vows are always a good thing and the highlight of any ceremony.
Want to know what was going on behind the scenes?
We were told just as the couple was walking down the aisle that they had forgotten the wedding bands- "somewhere" at the hotel. We quickly handed off our own bands and sent them down the aisle while an assistant gained access to their two hotel rooms to search high and low for the hidden boxes. The ceremony continued on, the rings were located and as they came back down the aisle we quickly switched out our bands for theirs. Sometimes you have to think on your feet and improvise. From the look on their faces as the recessed, they didn't let the little things bother them for a minute and knew it would be handled by our team.
