Our officiant warned Mr. Lemur one more time that this was his last chance to run…

Thankfully, he decided to stay.
We decided to use traditional vows—I honestly don’t remember exactly what we said. We repeated after our officiant, and I think they went something like this.
Me (crying again): I, Miss Lemur, take you, Mr. Lemur, to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part.
Mr. Lemur: I, Mr. Lemur, take you, Miss Lemur, to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part.
As I continued to fight back tears, we began to exchange rings.
The $25 ring I bought for Mr. Lemur off Amazon slid on perfectly—and looked great!
We both had our rings on, so there was only one thing left to do…
Did you write your own vows or stick with traditional ones like we did?
The wedding day began at 5:30 AM and continued as we got ready at the venue. We had our perfect first look and then took couple’s pictures in the road. After bridal party pictures and family pictures, it was time to begin the ceremony! I walked down the aisle and began the ceremony.
