Dog Poem 1

Katie and Brendan love dogs. They wanted to have their dogs as their witnesses, well that just could not happen. So they had this wonderful poem read to celebrate their love and their love of their four legged children.

How Falling in Love is Like Owning a Dog – Taylor Mali
First of all, it’s a big responsibility,
especially in a city like New York.
So think long and hard before deciding on love.
On the other hand, love gives you a sense of security:
when you’re walking down the street late at night
and you have a leash on love
ain’t no one going to mess with you.
Because crooks and muggers think love is unpredictable.
Who knows what love could do in its own defense?
On cold winter nights, love is warm.
It lies between you and lives and breathes
and makes funny noises.
Love wakes you up all hours of the night with its needs.
It needs to be fed so it will grow and stay healthy.
Love doesn’t like being left alone for long.
But come home and love is always happy to see you.
It may break a few things accidentally in its passion for life,
but you can never be mad at love for long.
Is love good all the time? No! No!
Love can be bad. Bad, love, bad! Very bad love.
Love makes messes.
Love leaves you little surprises here and there.
Love needs lots of cleaning up after.
Sometimes you just want to get love fixed.
Sometimes you want to roll up a piece of newspaper
and swat love on the nose,
not so much to cause pain,
just to let love know Don’t you ever do that again!
Sometimes love just wants to go out for a nice long walk.
Because love loves exercise. It will run you around the block
and leave you panting, breathless. Pull you in different directions
at once, or wind itself around and around you
until you’re all wound up and you cannot move.
But love makes you meet people wherever you go.
People who have nothing in common but love
stop and talk to each other on the street.
Throw things away and love will bring them back,
again, and again, and again.
But most of all, love needs love, lots of it.
And in return, love loves you and never stops.

We hope you have enjoyed your visit and this has been helpful.

Liza and Roger’s Vows

On the Saturday of this past Memorial Day weekend, on a picture perfect day, on a wind-swept hill, on Block Island, in the State of Rhode Island,  Liza and Roger exchanged their vows which united their hearts and lives for life. These are the words, feelings and love they share with each other and proclaim to the world:

Roger’s Vows
~I love that you light up when your near water
I can only imagine its because you’re a sailor’s daughter

~I love that you have made our home in W.V.
but remember wherever you go I go we are now we

~I love that I can always count on you… except for being on time…

~I love that you think I am funnier than I am especially at night when you are giddy. I couldn’t find a rhyme with giddy

~I love that your fingers fit perfectly in mine.
And when your head hits my chest you fall asleep no matter what time

~I love that I knew your father, now I know now where you get your strength, and I love your dedication to family and how you will go to any length.

~I love that you have helped me be the person I am today,
And I know there are many others here that would say the same thing

~I love that you are courageous and untethered and not just with your cooking. And that somehow you knew that I loved burnt or well-done food

~I love that I get to profess, that I LOVE YOU, to everyone around
And all of the things I know about you and all the others I haven’t yet found

~I love that this entire weekend could only be planned by you
And we get to show the world that no one says I do, like we do

Liza’s Vows
~I promise to take care of you forever and ever amen
~I promise to always make you feel my love
~I promise to love you for a thousand years
~I promise I can’t smile without you
~I promise that no one will become between us like two islands in the stream

I stand here today with my heart full.
I have spent years taking care of myself and being the organizer, the decision makers, the person in charge.
You help me STOP and appreciate life and the importance of Love.
You see in me so much talent and possibility.
You see the real LIZA with all of my perfect imperfections. …for that I love you.

I love that you are my ROCK.
I love that you calm my craziness.
I love that when I tell you that we never slow dance, that you pull over on the side of the road and dance with me to music on the car radio.
I love that you LOVE family as much as I do.
I love that you know about the dip in the nose and the baby hair in the small of my back.
I love that you aren’t afraid to cry.
I love that these puppies are your babies too.
I love that you are a creative – always dreaming and discovering.
I love that you make me belly laugh.
I love that you GET me.
I love that we will grow old together.

So today – I make a promise to continue to laugh and discover with you.
I promise to appreciate you in health and take care of you in sickness.
I promise to always pluck the hair from your ears and watch MMA (even though it bores me to death)
I promise to always share my thoughts and make decisions together.
I promise a million more promises as we become partners.
Most importantly, I promise to love you madly, widely, fiercely “just a little” everyday of my life.

 

We hope sharing Roger and Liza’s vows has been helpful, has touched your heart, and you have enjoyed your visit.

Today’s Vows

Today was a beautiful day in Bristol, Rhode Island and the vows shared by the couple were filled with tenderness, love, hope, and promise.

His vows: I promise to be there when you need me, to fill your days with sunshine, to comfort you and encourage you, to help you reach your goals, to be your best friend ever and to love you all my life with all my heart.

Her vows: Today I give myself to you in marriage. I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you, and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle. I promise to support your dreams and to respect our differences. I am looking forward to creating a home filled with love and understanding.  You are my best friend and together we will build a family. I will love you all my life with all my heart.

 

We hope you have enjoyed these words and they have touched your heart.

“Why Marriage?” by Mari Nichols

This wonderful poem by Mari Nichols reads like a marriage vow. We feel the poem speaks wonderfully of the depth of the beauty of love in relationship and the tremendous freedom marriage can provide.

Because to the depths of me, I long to love one person,
With all my heart, my soul, my mind, my body…
Because I need a forever friend to trust with the intimacies of me.
Who won’t hold them against me,
Who loves me when I am unlikable,
Who see the small child in me, and
Who looks for the divine potential of me
Because I need to cuddle in the warmth of the night
With someone who thanks God for me,
With someone I feel blessed to hold…
Because marriage means opportunity
To grow in love, in friendship…
Because marriage is a discipline
To be added to a list of achievements…
Because marriages do not fail, people fail
When they enter into marriage
Expecting another to make them whole…
Because knowing this,
I promise myself to take full responsibility
For my spiritual, mental and physical wholeness.
I create me.
I take half of the responsibility for my marriage
Together, we create our marriage.
Because with this understanding
The possibilities are limitless.

 

We hope you have enjoyed your visit.

VOWS: Ways To Celebrate Your love

Each couple feels differently about the way they actually say/proclaim their marriage wedding vows. We have seen couples celebrate their vows in a few different ways. Below are a some ideas about how you are able to  share your vows with each other before your families and friends.

1-The celebrant/minister/officiant asks each one of the couple a few questions and each responds individually with “I DO” to the questions.

2-The celebrant/minister/officiant asks the vow questions to the couple as a couple and the couple responds together as a couple saying “WE DO” to the questions.

3-The celebrant/minister/officiant reads a few words and each one of the couple “Repeats” the words spoken by the officiant after the officiant, thus the statement: “Repeat after me”

4- The couple reads their vows to each other. This style has the couple focused on the reading of the vows holding the paper/card/book that the vows are written on. This presents challenges if the couple wants to both hold both hands and look into each others eyes. The focus becomes more on reading the vows than being focused on each other.

5-The celebrant/minister/officiant asks each party a question and each responds individually with “I DO” to the question OR the celebrant asks the couple the vow questions to the couple as a couple and the couple responds together as a couple saying “WE DO” to the questions. THEN the celebrant/minister/officiant reads a few words to each one of the couple individually and each individually “Repeats” the words spoken by the officiant.

6-Any combination of the about that will work the best for the two of you.

We strongly encourage not to share your vows from memory since the focus of “wanting to remember the vows perfectly” creates further anxiety by of not wanting to make a mistake if will the vows be remembered correctly. Speaking the vows from memory often becomes the focus, so much of the ceremony is missed due to the worry about “getting the vows right and will I remember them”.

We hope you have enjoyed your visit and this has been helpful.

Vows and the “WE DO” Response

Who know why we have not been blogging…let’s blame February and March for being February and March, (in the Northern Hemisphere)but now wedding bells are in the air. We have some wonderful thoughts about weddings to share so please drop in every once in a while.

The following are  vows using the response WE DO said by the couple as a couple rather than I DO said as an individual. The following marriage vows were shared by James and Debbie last summer and are a wonderful example of a couple using the “WE DO” formula in proclaiming their vows.

James and Debbie, do you promise to be true to each other in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to be gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in love?
WE DO

Do you promise to seek sobriety, balance, and moderation in all things, being mindful of yourselves, of each other, and of your relationship?
WE DO

Do you promise to listen to each other’s voice and listen to each other’s heart, and understand with each other in all times, all situations, and all conditions?
WE DO

Do you promise to be a safe haven for each other, place of joy and peace and forgiveness, a place where hugs are to freely given?
WE DO

Do you promise to be each other’s partner in joy, comfort and sickness, solace and sorrow, strength in adversity, and constant companion in life?
WE DO

Do you promise to love and honor each other all the days of your lives?
WE DO

We hope you have enjoyed your visit.
