You Come Too

Speaking of weddings, The Boss and I recently wrote our wedding ceremony. This was probably the last detail we took care of (the first being, obviously, the pre ceremony margarita bar), but it was by far my favorite. It feels like us, and even though the ceremony will be, at most, about 10 minutes, I love every element that we’ve incorporated, and was pleasantly reminded why I’ve spent the past three months caring about table linens and calligraphy.

HOWEVER, while weeding through various readings for the ceremony, and it came to my attention that, when speaking of love and lifetime commitment, most people are full of shit. That being said, there were a few readings that I really liked, and we found a few that worked for us.

One reading that I loved was from Rilke’s “First Poems.” We didn’t end up using it for the ceremony, so I’ll share it with you here:

“Understand, I’ll slip quietly
Away from the noisy crowd
When I see the pale

Stars rising, blooming over the oaks.
I’ll pursue solitary pathways
Through the pale twilit meadows,
With only this one dream:
You come too”

Me: “Hey man, you only get married once”


Me: “…Well, I mean, in THEORY”

Whoops. Oh well – no sense in getting caught up in the details, right? Right.
