Tyler and Sarah were married in the Beautiful Delta Bessbourough hotel. Their wedding day was filled with so much emotion, I was moved to tears during the vow portion of their wedding day. My words cannot simply describe their wedding day well enough, so with Tyler and Sarah’s blessing I was able to gather a copy of their vows to share with you.
Tyler, Five years. Five years of you and I. I think, almost everyone here knows I could spend every day talking about you and our favourite memories. We’ve travelled what seems to be the world to me. We’ve enjoyed graduations and new jobs. We’ve moved around central Saskatchewan and finally call Tisdale home. We have had the most fun together and suffered some great tragedies. This past year has been our most trying. We have had to live in a backyard shack, been apart from our dearest and longest friends, renovated an entire house and have had to say goodbye to some of the most important people in our lives. Losing Mom broke my heart. Time and time again, you picked me up off the floor, you let me cry for hours, you got me out of pyjamas and out of the house. You let me broken and you let me hurt, but everyday you mend my heart piece by piece. You will never let her fade from our lives, you talk about her all of the time, you tell me how much she would have loved our lives, and how proud she would have been of us. I’ve never told you this but you saved by life this past year and I will spend the rest of our lives trying to thank you for that.
It is moments like that that make finding the right words to sum up my feelings for you so hard. Not that I can’t think of any, but that none of them seem to be good enough. For today, in true Sarah fashion, I found this quote and the rest of this vow came easily, “I love the first sip of coffee in the morning. I love reading someone else’s words and finding a connection in them. I love wondering. I love the gentle kind of sadness like a reminder I can feel.” I love all these things, but they will never compare to the love I feel when I look at you. I feel it deep within my soul, you etched your name into my very being and I don’t think I could ever describe that feeling to anyone. Today, I vow to never lose this feeling of being so incredibly in love with you that I am speechless. I love you.
Sarah since the moment I laid eyes on you, I knew my life was about to change. It was after our first date, that I knew that we would one day marry each other. It was date number two I built up the courage to kiss your cheek. Date three and four passed and by date number five I knew I loved you, yet I was still too nervous to tell you. Date number five seems like a lifetime ago, where sweaty hands, consuming large portions of food, and meeting parents seemed to be our biggest fears. Its been five amazing years together, from the happiest, and most exciting times, to the Sad and heartbreaking times. However no matter what the circumstances have been, we have managed to get through it together. Sarah as I read you these vows I am not going to stand in front of you and tell you that everything in our life will be perfect, easy coming or that pain will not exist, that is not how life works. However, I can tell you and I can promise you, that I will kiss you every single morning to start your day and every single night to end your day. I promise you that no matter how upset, angry or even how busy our lives become I will tell you I love you every single day. I promise not to go to bed angry, instead work out the differences that we may have. I promise that I will be there for you on both good days, and on bad days. On days where your feeling ill, and days that your feeling like yourself. I promise to cherish you, and love you unconditionally for the rest of our lives. Sarah I love that you make me laugh, and that you laugh at my jokes when they aren’t even funny. I love that no matter what crazy idea I come up with, you are always willing to support it. I love that you want to try new things and take risks, but yet your cautious and think rationally about the outcome. You make me so proud Sarah, and as the caring, loving, and compassionate person that you are, I strongly believe that you never chose a career as a nurse, that nursing chose you. I love you so much Sarah Pee and am anxious to start the next chapter of our journey together.
