For their Temecula, Calif., nuptials, Brooke Peterson, a benefits specialist, and Steven Triplett, who is in retail management, penned their feelings in a spontaneous manner. The result: vows that were unstructured, yet completely heartfelt.
Brooke to Steven
I love that you open doors for
little old ladies.
I love that you would spend
your last five dollars just to see
somebody else happy.
I love that you have "blonde
moments"—like thinking Jamaica
is part of Hawaii. But more than
that, I love that you can laugh
at them afterwards.
I love that you're strong
and honorable, yet warm and
compassionate, loving and
accepting of all people.
But most of all, I love that you
and I both love each other so much.
I promise to stand by you, and
to be the president of your fan club.
I promise to never let anything
come between us, to fight for us,
to love you through good times
and challenging times, and to
always maintain a sense of humor
and adventure as we take our next
steps together into the unknown
and beautiful future.
Steven to Brooke
