One year ago, my wife and I were married.
The ceremony was at 5pm, on the beach at SeaSide, OR.
The reception was a blast. We had a bonfire with lots of good family & friends.
There aren’t words to tell you how happy I am that I married this woman.
It has been a rough year, full of hard times and challenges.
It’s also been full of us growing together, individually and as a couple.
It’s been a year that we have both learned to trust God, and see his goodness in one-another.
She is amazing, the love of my life, a precious gift from God.
In just over eight months, a child is going to be born, our first kid.
I’m so excited!
Really, overjoyed and exploding with happyness.
I’m so happy that Sarah and I are going to have many more years and aniversieries together.
I love you Sarah.
Here are the vows I spoke to her at the wedding. I still mean every word:
I Aaron take you Sarah to be my constant friend, my faithful lover, the mother of my children, and my wife from this day forward. In the presence of God, our family, and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be yours in times of plenty and in times of want, in times of sickness and in times of health, in good times and in bad, in times of failure and times of triumph, in joy and in sorrow. I promise to love you unconditionally, to cherish and respect you, to care for and protect you, to support you in your goals, to laugh with you and cry with you, to comfort and encourage you, to honor you and stay with you as long as we both shall live.
I give you this ring as a symbol of my love, my faith in our strength together, and my covenant to learn and grow with you. All that I am and all that I have I give to you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
