During a wedding ceremony, the vows are the most important moment. It’s when two partners look into one another’s eyes and promise to love and cherish one another for the rest of their lives. While some couples follow a script guided by their religion or culture, others opt to write their own—these brides and grooms use their own words to speak from the heart and say exactly what they want to about their partners.
