His Wedding Vows:

Elena, most beautiful among women, you have captivated my heart.

Today, I ask you to be my wife, as your best friend, editor, and partner. I love you and know this love is from the Lord.  

I want to be your husband so I can serve you and we can serve Christ together.

Through every mountaintop and valley, I promise to be faithful to you and to love you fully.

I promise to follow the Lord and His Spirit as I lead and protect you, just as Christ does his church.

I promise to never leave you and to “scoot” as much as possible.

I promise to dance and sing with you when I am cranky and when I'm full of joy.

I promise that basketball will always be just a silly game and that you will come first.

God’s word gives the perfect example of love in Christ’s life and death for the church.

I promise to always, with my Father’s help and the Spirit’s leading, to show you this same kind of love.




Her Wedding Vows:

I, Elena, take you Zach, to be my wedded husband, loving what I know of you, trusting what I do not yet know.

I will respect your integrity and have faith in your abiding love for me.

I offer myself wholeheartedly to you.

I stand before you today made complete in Christ the head over all, yet made even more complete in unity with you.

I do promise and covenant, before God and these witnesses, to be your loving and faithful wife,

in plenty and in want, in joy and in sorrow,

in sickness and in health,

you are my home.

At times, I will fail you but this, I promise: I have chosen you, today I choose you, and for the rest of our lives I will choose you until we are parted from this earth and present with the Lord.
