Three Passages to Include in Your Wedding Vows

Posted on by Ashley Smith

More couples are opting to write their own vows and merge them with tradition. So many brides and grooms want to personalize their promises to one another, yet struggle to find the right words. When writing from the heart, you can still include some of the most beautiful lines ever penned on the subject of love.

For your Destin wedding, we’ve collected a few of our favorite prose and poems about matters of the heart:

Pablo Neruda, Sonnet XVII
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you directly without problems or pride:
I love you like this because I don’t know any other way to love,
except in this form in which I am not nor are you,
so close that your hand upon my chest is mine,
so close that your eyes close with my dreams.”

Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights

“He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same. If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.”

Louis de Bernieres, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin

“You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. [We have] roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.”
