Julie and lisa
I think our guests really loved our
day. They talked a lot about our
vows and they enjoyed laughing
along. Lisa and I pretty much giggled
though our entire ceremony.
out to be so beautiful! lisa wore a gray vested suit – made by
my mom, so it ﬁtted her like a glove. Bespoke suits can be
very expensive, so we were very lucky that my mom was able
to accomplish this.
We wrote our own vows. We are not necessarily a typical
couple, so we didn’t want our vows to be typical. lisa
actually based hers on the Plain White T’s song 1234. she
knows i can’t stand songs that count, and she is an
intentional self-proclaimed ‘button pusher’. so in her true
style, she wrote her vows to be sweet and push my buttons
at the same time. it was very cute, and our family and friends
were counting along with her by the end. We loved how her
vows became interactive!
i made my vows as a numbered list of promises that i
knew i could actually keep forever. lisa actually lOVes
numbered lists, and i am a pleaser! i promised things like
always giving her all of the yellow skittles, but only some of
the purples. i promised to always be her shoulder to lean on
and a safe space for her secrets. i promised to always read
her thoughts and only occasionally read her phone. and i
promised to always make sure i wasn’t hungry before i lost
my temper with her. Our vows described our relationship
perfectly – silly and honest, but so in love.
We didn’t have a traditional wedding party. lisa walked
down the aisle alone and my two sons, who were nine and
eight at the time, walked me down the aisle. We loved that
