New Year's Eve, Destination Wedding in NYC. One of the greatest places in the U.S. to be on NYE! Dustin and Jeffrey were married in the same theater they met each other in. In my attempt to write about the bonds and blessings I witnessed, I felt their vows said it best.
To Dustin and Jeffery, I wish you a life time of, "Vows" and "New Year's Eve Dates! oxox, Lynne
Dustin, My Love,
Today I give you the rest of my life. With my whole heart and mind, I promise forever to love you, support you, and lean on you. I will treat will you with kindness and care, and I will give you all of me every day.
I will laugh with you and cry with you.
I will be scared with you and I will be brave with you.
I will fight with you, and I will make up with you.
I will wonder with you, ask with you, pray with you, decide with you, and learn with you.
I will spend with you and save with you; plan with you and play with you.
I will build you up, not tear you down.
I will hold you, not push you away.
I will be faithful to you, and I will have faith in you.
I will be open to you, and I will cover you.
Good times and bum times.
You are and will forever be my one and only love, and I promise that as long as we are living, I will live to create and maintain a home and family life with you that is fulfilling, joyful, and filled with love. And if ever again I win as precious a lottery as I did when you chose me, I will share it with you.
The day that we first met was mostly an ordinary day, except we started rehearsing a show together. How was I to know that I had just met the love of my life.
The day that we realized that we were in love was mostly an ordinary day, except it happened to be New Years Eve. How was I to know that that love would last forever.
Today is mostly an ordinary day…except we just so happen to be getting married. It’s, once again, New Years Eve, and this time, I know exactly what I'm in for. From this day on we will grow as a team, and no longer as individual players, and before we know it; no one will remember when we were separate.
I stand here in front of you and all of our friends to bear my soul and promise that you are the thing I can't bare to lose. These promises are a bargain of love; despite all odds - trip us or trap us; we will always be there to catch the other!
So, My promise to you is:
to always be your date on New Years Eve.
to comfort you in times of sorrow, especially during a rough Seahawks season.
to always listen to you, even when you’re wrong.
to always be right, even when you think I’m wrong.
to always yell when I’m mad.
to always apologize when it turned out that you were right, after all.
I vow to be the best parts of me that fit perfectly with the best parts of you.
Although I will be imperfect, I pledge to be sensitive and respectful of your unique talents, abilities and quirks.
I pledge to lend you strength to make all of your dreams come true, and to pressure you when you are ignoring them.
You are my love, my best friend, and my partner. Together we will do more than I could ever do alone. I believe in you, I believe in me, I believe in us.
