Materials for Vows

These websites are from the March/April 2008 issue of Brides. has downloadable scripts from movies, plays, musicals, and TV shows

Love Is ...
Love is the greatest feeling,
Love is like a play,
Love is what I feel for you,
Each and every day,
Love is like a smile,
Love is like a song,
Love is a great emotion,
That keeps us going strong,
I love you with my heart,
My body and my soul,
I love the way I keep loving,
Like a love I can't control,
So remember when your eyes meet mine,
I love you with all my heart,
And I have poured my entire soul into you,
Right from the very start.

The Meaning
To love is to share life together
to build special plans just for two
to work side by sideand then smile with pride
as one by one, dreams all come true.
To love is to help and encourage
with smiles and sincere words of praise
to take time to shareto listen and care
in tender, affectionate ways.
To love is to have someone special
one who you can always depend
to be there through the years
sharing laughter and tears
as a partner, a lover, a friend.
To love is to make special memories
of moments you love to recall
of all the good things
that sharing life brings
love is the greatest of all.
I've learned the full meaning
of sharing and caring
and having my dreams all come true;
I've learned the full meaning
of being in love
by being and loving with you.

Japanese Paper Lanterns

I got the idea to use paper lanterns from Colin Cowie. In an issue of Brides magazine, Colin gave ideas on how to decorate reception spaces. This top picture is the picture in Brides that inspired me. The other pictures are picutures that I found online.
