I'm a big cry baby

This weekend we're headed to Santa Cruz once again for some wedding appointments. We have meetings with three different officiants, and I really hope we like one... I'm beginning to fear that we're too picky!

Yesterday one of the women sent me a sample ceremony. After work I read it out loud to James to give him an idea of what it would be like.

I read the introduction, and when I got to the vows I started tearing up. Soon enough I was completely crying and couldn’t even finish. Oh geez, I'm gonna be a mess if that happens at our wedding ceremony! I also cried while wearing my wedding dress at the store!

Here are the vows that made me cry. We like them a lot but will probably tweak them at least a little. Or use something completely different.

I, [groom], take you, [bride], to be my wife,
knowing in my heart that you will be my constant friend,
my faithful partner in life,
and my one true love.
I give to you my promise
to stay by your side as your husband
in sickness and in health,
in joy and in sorrow
I promise to love you without reservation,
honor and respect you,
protect you from harm,
comfort you in times of distress,
always be open and honest with you,
and cherish you for as long as we both shall live.
