More Unlikely Vow Inspiration

Play it from 3:40, They have escaped the country club ceremony that was forced upon them and are kneeling in the grass looking into each others eyes. The words aren't right for Mike and I, but I love the honesty and intimacy of their moment.
Dharma: I, Dharma Freedom Finkelstein promise to never ever become my mother.
Greg: Or my mother.
Dharma: Like that's possible.
Greg: I, Gregory not saying the middle name Montgomery promise I will not bottle up my feelings for 30yrs and spew them like a volcano at our childrens' wedding.
Dharma: Aww, that's a good one.
Greg: Thank you.
Dharma: I promise to let you be you and me be me.
Greg: (whispering) Thank you.
Dharma: As long as every now and then we get naked and switch.
Greg: Uh-Ok. Do you promise to always look at me with that light in your eyes?
Dharma: (Nods) If you promise to always brush my hair off my face like that. (kissing) And kiss me like that.
Greg: You make me feel like the luckiest man in the world.

And then they dance by themselves in the grass. So, romantic. This is what I was trying to explain about having a moment that's just us during the first look photos. I want what Jim and Pam had. An intimate moment that was theirs and then an amazing time with friends.

I just want to take a moment for us, there have been so very few. Then I want to make real promises we'll try to keep every day, together. I want to make them in front of my friends and family. I want to laugh and have a good time. I want to surprise people. I want an unforgettable celebration.

By the way I am not an uncultured couch potato. My post of literary vow inspiration is still in the works.


  1. i know it's cheezy, but i found some inspiration from some online ones - there's a lot. i didn't want to put the "... in death" or or "sickness" part, so i got around it a little ;-)

    good luck!!!!

  2. what most people want they're spouses to promise and what Mike should probably promise are two different things :-) Chance

  3. Ha! True. Promise to stop trying to kill me by leaving tools and shoes in inconvient places

  4. DUDE! THE SHOES ARE GOING TO BE THE DEATH OF ME! Or if you DO leave the shoes in the doorway please leave the light on so I can see them!! Kati

  5. Promise not to criticize me for things you knew about me before we got married. I'm still the same person, and you love me for who I am or you don't. Lara
