1 How can I hinder or restrain my soul so that it does not yearn for yours? And how can it be lured to life apart from you? I know how everything that stirs me, stirs you too; How you and I are like a bow that's bound through with two strings, to give a single sound. O long sweet song!

(by Rainer Maria Rilke)

2 I had always had dreams of the potential of my tomorrows, believing that anything was possible. Today, as I set out to live in this world and make a difference in it, it stirs my heart to know that you will be by my side. Your hunger for redeeming the promises of our tomorrows is as strong as my own.
3 Having found you, I have decided that there is no moment in my life more significant than this one. The moment I offer myself and all that I will become to you. May we share with each other, from this day on, the unending joy of growth and discovery.
4 Our love extends beyond earth, sea, wind, and flame. It is greater than who we are and meaningless without us. It is more powerful than our past, yet the foundation for our future. It has brought us here today to become one in the eyes of our family and friends, for all days to come. Our love is the essence of our lives.
5 Our choice is made. Our minds are clear and our hearts strong. This love means more to us than anything else in life. There is no person, precondition, or approval I value more than your love. There is no obstacle I would not overcome to reach you. I give myself to our union. I welcome you as my partner in life. May our love forever keep us strong.
6 Our love is a work of art, our greatest creation. It is an ongoing pursuit with range, diversity, scope; It is dynamic, ever-changing, and fresh. May it forever challenge, delight, and inspire us as the best works of art do. United, may we discover new facets and subtleties in this, our partnership, our unique and unending collaboration, from this day forward.
7 I promise to honor and cherish you above all others from this day forward. I bring to you this flower. It is a symbol of the love that is consecrated today. Let us always remember that it must be nurtured and given care to grow and thrive. We will nourish the flower of our love and give it all the care it requires. Do this with me and watch us grow.
8 We are joining here today because we love, respect, and honor each other. And because we are committed to sharing equally in both the triumphs and trials of the days to come. I take you as my partner. I offer all that I am in return, and pledge to remember, over every day of our partnership, why we unite here today. Join me in celebrating our love.
9 When you need strength, I will offer mine. When you need words of encouragement, I will listen and provide support. When you need solace and comfort and the silent speech of love, I will understand. I place you in my heart today, before all others, and I pledge to work from this hour forward to make our commitment a sound and challenging one.
10 You have captured my mind and soul, and I here commit them to our union. From this hour, may we surrender to one another, completely rejoicing in the power of our new partnership, secure in our own identities, and certain in our bond.
11 May we dare to dream dreams not yet dreamt. May we find constant reward and challenge as we pursue the ongoing adventure of learning who we are and where we want to go. May we always have a special sense of our mission in life together, and may we never tire of the endless possibilities of exploring our shared existence. Today I join with you.
12 When you came into my life, I found not an endless melody, but an ongoing harmony in which I can play my own part. Today we join our lives in harmony. The refrain is one of love, trust, and respect, a powerful theme that will never be concluded as long as we live together on this earth. Today I take you as my eternal mate, for you are my symphony.
13 With you, love means freedom. Freedom to love you without judgement and freedom to be yours while maintaining the very soul of me. So on this day, a day we choose together to meet in union before family and friends, I accept you as my partner, in the name of love. My most cherished freedom is now the freedom to love you for a lifetime.
14 My aim is not to change you, but rather to grow with you. I bring a stronger heart to this choice than I have brought to any other. But I sense that it will grow stronger still with days lived along side you. Stay with me. Learn with me. Live by my side. I will do the same faithfully and joyously.
15 I will base my life with you on love and caring. I will be considerate of your wishes and desires, and respect your integrity and intentions. I will support your dreams and goals, and strive to keep our lives with laughter and joy. Where there are troubles, I will stand with you. I bring to you the very best person that I can be, now and forever.
16 Our lives run in parallel, side by side, yet together. With continued love, friendship, trust, and communication, I take joy today in committing my life to yours. When you need me, I will be there, and when your strength fails you, may mine always be there for you. Side by side, step by step, may our journey together begin here, from this day forward.
17 Your love has provided me with vision and depth beyond the reaches of my years. Now with you at my side, my goals are clear, my hopes are high, and my life is full of purpose. I am ready and able to offer all that I am to you from this day forward. With aspirations tempered by realism and love limited by nothing, I join with you from this day forward.
18 Today I stand by you, proud and happy, of the special love we have found. Today we celebrate all that lies ahead. I promise to love, cherish, and honor you all the days of my life. I pledge to you faithfulness and friendship in good times and bad, in sickness and in health, from this day forward.
19 Today we join with family and friends to reaffirm our union. We do this grateful appreciation for what has gone before, and in loving anticipation of the years ahead. What I have promised before, I gladly promise again: to love you, honor you, and respect you. I give to you all that I have been, all I am now, all I will be. Let us celebrate our love.

(Vow Renewal)

20 Praise Him who performs mighty miracles, who made the heavens, and who planted the waters within the earth. Today, I praise the Lord for all of this, and for blessing me with your love. Pray with me that His loving kindness will follow us all of our days. I offer myself to you for all eternity. I will love, honor, and cherish you above all others.

(religious: adapted from Psalm 136)

21 How can I honor you more? I can honor, respect, and remain loyal to you forever. Accordingly, on this, our wedding day, I pledge eternity of our union to you, to our friends and family, and to God. let us spend our lives together.

22 It is written that those who walk in the light of God forever are blessed. They will rejoice in his perfect righteousness. Today we begin our journey. May we walk in the light of God forever. I have been blessed to share in your love, strive to be fair and honest, wise and true. May God always keep us and watch over our home.

(religious: adapted from Psalm 89)

23 You and I will live with the miracle. And miracles are possible where there is love. Love is the reason we are here before God. And I believe that today, God opens his hand to us. I believe that I was chosen to live my life with you from this day forward. Today I act on this belief before our friends and family, giving myself unendingly to you.

(religious)

24 This act is one we share with God, who here joins two souls for all eternity, and who will know us from this day not as two but as one. May God always be gracious unto us, bless our days, and abide in our home. May His tender mercies solidify our union as we join beneath His hand today.

(religious)

25 I open my arms to you in the promise of everlasting love, understanding, and hope for the tomorrows yet to come. May we relish the solidity of God who has entered our lives. In His infinite wisdom, He has brought us together today to be made as one. May we continue to grow in His sight as a couple.

(religious)

26 I promise to be your partner in times of joy and in times of trouble,  to provide for and support you in friendship, trust, and love. I promise to work with you to build our lives together.  May we grow, our lives intertwined, our love bringing us closer. Let us create a home based on love.  May it be a home filled with peace, with happiness, and with love.
27 Today as we Celebrate our Love in the presence of God, family and friends, I desire to share in your dreams, through the sunshine and rain, knowing rainbows will follow. I will be beside you, as the thorns of life become beautiful roses.  With passion, understanding and hope, I am honored and thrilled to pledge my love to you, until the end of time.

(religious)

28 May my heart be your shelter, my arms be your refuge, for when your strength alone will not carry you through, my strength will forever be there for you.  I open my heart and arms to you with the promise of everlasting love, understanding, and hope for our tomorrows yet to come.  Side by side, step by step, may we journey together through our eternity.

Vows 1: Sometimes when we simply say 'I love you' we forget that it is not a simple thing at all or a saying we can lightly use. May we always remember where we have come from to reach our I love you's and where we're going to whisper many more. Remember the first 'I love you' that was ever whispered.

Vows 2:  I promise to love and care for you through times of joy and times of sorrow. To rejoice when you are happy and to grieve when you suffer. To share your interest and hopes for the future. I promise to love you with all my heart, from the top to the bottom and from side to side. I love you.
