Lucky 13! Happy Anniversary to us
My most vivid memory of my wedding is the vows. Not the actual words we said, but what happened during the vows. Ken and I had talked over the wording a few times, and mostly decided to stick with the traditional version of "love, honor, and cherish..." One thing I am absolutely positive we did not discuss was memorizing the vows. Ken was too worried about being nervous that day. And to be honest, I was too. However, when it came time for the vows, the priest stepped back. In conversations later, he said it was so that we could be the focus of that moment, instead of him being in the way.
BUT...Ken's nervousness took over at that moment and he started reciting our vows...from memory. I was shocked! And worried!! I didn't think we were going to memorize them!! Somehow they came to me and I managed to pledge something to Ken. I can't imagine the look I must have given him at that moment. I sure hoped it looked loving and not panicked!
