There are so many things I want to say, I don’t even know if I can coherently write them into a blog post. But I’ll try!
As far as my job is concerned, Sabrina and Mason were, without question, the perfect bride and groom. They looked at the camera when they were supposed to, they followed direction, they held the rings properly, but beyond that, and MOST importantly, they showed, throughout the entire day, true and genuine emotion. There was laughter, and happiness and even tears of joy.
As I have mentioned once or twice before, Sabrina and Mason got married on a boat. Not just any boat, a big beautiful ship. The Kajama in Toronto, to be precise, and I would recommend this to anyone! It was so beautiful and peaceful!
Sabrina and Mason both wrote their own vows, and were kind enough to send them to me so I could share them with all of you! During the vows, I don’t think there was a dry eye on that boat! (Side note of awesomeness: They both read their vows off their cell phones!)
Mason went first.
I love you because you understand me. When I’m mad or frustrated you know what to say to put things into perspective. Though I sometimes don’t listen 😉
I love you because I can hold you so tight. I want to get a close to you as I can. It’s the easiest way I can express how I feel.
I love you because we work so well together. We’ve been through a lot this year and we are ending it the best way possible, together.
I know for me expressing myself is difficult to put into words. When we had our first date, it was so easy to be together. When we moved in together there was no question. This is the next step for me to let you know I care about you.
I promise you this:
I will laugh with you in times of joy and comfort you in times of sorrow.
I will share in your dreams, and support you as you strive to achieve your goals.
I will listen to you with compassion and understanding,
and speak to you with encouragement.
I will help you when you need it, and step aside when you don’t.
I will remain faithful to you for better or worse, in times of sickness and health.
You are my best friend and I will love and respect you always.
Then, it was Sabrina’s turn.
In the immortal words of Ms. Carly Rae Jepsen “Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad. I missed you so, so bad.” As we stand here today before our dear family and friends, I can’t help but share with them the impact of the moment I first met you. Time stood still, I was suddenly exactly where I was supposed to be, looking at the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I had never truly believed in fate before, but in that moment you made me a believer. I thank my lucky stars each day since that moment that I found you. While we may sometimes be separated by cities, work schedules, and my ambitious projects I always look forward to the moment we are together again, when I can go home,
because Home is Whenever I’m with you.
I promise that we will always laugh.
Giggle until our bellies are sore,
chuckle until we can speak no more,
and howl until the tears begin to flow.
I promise that we will always talk.
I will listen to your wild dreams, and support you on the hard days.
I will encourage you to reach for your goals, and keep you humble when you succeed.
You are my best friend
I will love you till the very end.
You are the someone just for me.
Sabrina and Mason, I am so, so happy for you guys – I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together!
