You know you're at a different wedding when the bride begins her vows talking about how much she didn't like the groom when they met. And then that is followed by talking about how he used to walk around campus barefoot all the time and how he had also earned the nickname "blackout". I really wish I could have memorized his vows, because he had a powerful line that he delivered with such passion. He said, "I cant promise that I'll love you perfectly (pause), but I will love you messily, passionately, completely, [and then about 10 other adverbs]. It really wasn't just the words, but passion and cadence in how he said it that brought it all together. My favorite part came a little bit earlier when I asked him during the ceremony, "Are you ready to take this woman to be your wife and to yada yada yada (I didn't actually say Yada Yada Yada)? He replies once I'm done with the question, in a deep and strong voice, "YES!" It was such a strong response that it got a reaction from all of the family and friends in attendance. It even got a response from the bride. She jumps in and comments about the tone, "wow, that was sturdy" This got a laugh from everyone, but without missing a beat, and speaking over the chuckles of those watching, he goes deeper and stronger, slowly and methodicaly pronouncing the words, "I A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y F**king do!" I seriously had to wait 25 seconds for everyone to calm down and stop laughing before I could continue. It was a fun wedding 🙂
