  1. Words from the play: Hamlet 
    Doubt thou the stars are fire;
    Doubt that the sun doth move;
    Doubt truth to be a liar;
    But never doubt I love.
    William Shakespeare
    Love Sayings

  2. Eskimo Love Song
    You are my husband, you are my wife
    My feet shall run because of you
    My feet dance because of you
    My heart shall beat because of you
    My eyes see because of you
    My mind thinks because of you
    And I shall love, because of you.

  3. Hope is the thing with Feathers
    Hope is the thing with feathers
    That perches in the soul,
    And sings the tune without the words,
    And never stops at all,
    And sweetest in the gale is heard;
    And sore must be the storm
    That could abash the little bird
    That kept so many warm.
    I've heard it in the chilliest land,
    And on the strangest sea;
    Yet, never, in extremity
    It asked a crumb of me.
    Emily Dickinson

  4. Love’s Philosophy
    The fountains mingle with the river, 
    And the rivers with the ocean;
    The winds of heaven mix forever,
    With a sweet emotion;
    Nothing in the world is single;
    All things by a law divine
    In one another's being mingle:-
    Why not I with thine?
    See! the mountains kiss high heaven,
    And the waves clasp one another;
    Now sister flower would be forgiven
    If it disdained its brother;
    And the sunlight clasps the earth,
    And the moonbeams kiss the sea:-
    What are all these kissing's worth,
    If thou kiss not me?
    Percy Shelley
    I Love You So Much Quotes

  5. To A Kiss
    Humid seal of soft affections,
    Tend'rest pledge of future bliss,
    Dearest tie of young connections,
    Love's first snow-drop, virgin kiss.
    Speaking silence, dumb confession,
    Passion's birth, and infants' play,
    Dove-like fondness, chaste concession,
    Glowing dawn of brighter day.
    Sorrowing joy, adieu's last action,
    Ling'ring lips, -- no more to join!
    What words can ever speak affection
    Thrilling and sincere as thine!
    Robert Burns

  6. The One
    When the one whose hand you're holding
    Is the one one who holds your heart
    When the one whose eyes you gaze into
    Gives your hopes and dreams their start,
    When the one you think of first and last
    Is the one who holds you tight,
    And the things you plan together
    Make the whole world seem just right,
    When the one whom you believe in
    puts their faith and trust in you,
    You've found the one and only love
    You'll share your whole life through.

  7. Reading from the Bible
    Love is patient, Love is kind,
    It does not envy, it does not boast,
    It is not proud, it is not rude,
    It is not self-seeking,
    It is not easily angered,
    It keeps no record of wrongs.
    Love does not delight in evil,
    but rejoices with the truth.
    Love always protects, always trusts,
    always hopes, always perseveres.
    Love bears all things, believes all things,
    hopes all things, endures all things.
    Love never ends.
    Lover never fails
    (Corinthians 13:4-8)

  8. Apache Wedding Blessing
    Now you will feel no rain,
    For each of you will be shelter to the other.
    Now you will feel no cold,
    For each of you will be warmth to the other.
    Now there is no loneliness for you,
    For each of you will be companion to the other.
    Now you are two bodies,
    But there is only one life before you.
    Go now to your dwelling place,
    To enter into the days of your togetherness.
    And may your days be good
    and long upon the earth. 
    Wedding Blessings

  9. Apache Blessing
    May the sun bring you new energy by day,
    May the moon softly restore you by night,
    May the rain wash away your worries
    And the breeze blow new strength into your being,
    And all the days of your life may you walk
    Gently through the world and know its beauty.

  11. Our Family
    Our family is a circle of love and strength.
    With every birth and every union, the circle grows.
    Every joy shared adds more love.
    Every obstacle faced together makes the circle stronger.

  12. To Be One With Each Other
    What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labour, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?
    George Eliot (1819-1880)
    Wedding Toasts

  13. Never Marry But For Love
    Never marry but for love; but see that thou lovest what is lovely. He that minds a body and not a soul has not the better part of that relationship, and will consequently lack the noblest comfort of a married life.
    Between a man and his wife nothing ought rule but love. As love ought to bring them together, so it is the best way to keep them well together.

    A husband and wife that love one another show their children that they should do so too. Others visibly lose their authority in their families by their contempt of one another, and teach their children to be unnatural by their own examples.

    Let not enjoyment lessen, but augment, affection; it being the basest of passions to like when we have not, what we slight when we possess.

    Here it is we ought to search out our pleasure, where the field is large and full of variety, and of an enduring nature; sickness, poverty or disgrace being not able to shake it because it is not under the moving influences of worldly contingencies.

    Nothing can be more entire and without reserve; nothing more zealous, affectionate and sincere; nothing more contented than such a couple, nor greater temporal felicity than to be one of them.
    William Penn (1644-1718)
    Marriage Vows

  14. Marriage Advice
    Let your love be stronger than your hate and anger.
    Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend a little than to break. Believe the best rather than the worst.
    People have a way of living up or down to your opinion of them.
    Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship. The person you choose to marry is deserving of the courtesies and kindnesses you bestow on your friends.
    Please hand this down to your children and your children's children.
    Jane Wells (1886)
    Marriage Quotes

    Here are some Wedding Poems written for you by Julie Hebert:

  15. The Day 
    Today is the day,
    I wed my best friend. 
    A joyous day it is.
    I will stand up tall and say my vows,
    A Mrs. now, no longer a Ms.
    He is the one I will spend my life with,
    And what a life it will be.
    Our love will overflow into the streets,
    Our life will be filled with glee.
    I must say how happy I am,
    To be here on this day with you.
    We'll share some thoughts, then a kiss,
    Our lives now one, no longer two.
    Julie Hebert
    Wedding Speeches

  16. My One and Only
    You are the one and only,
    One I care to love.
    The one and only person,
    The one I hold high above.

    You are the one and only,
    One I care to see.
    The one and only person,
    The one who sets me free.

    You are the one and only,
    One I take his hand.
    The one and only person,
    Who I walk through rocks and sand.

    You are the one and only,
    The one who's truth and pure.
    The one and only person,
    The one I know for sure.
    Julie Hebert

    Now its time for the fun!
