When I meet with wedding couples I always ask them if they would like to write their own vows or use one of the vow choices I offer in the packet of information I give to them.
There are many couples that are completely comfortable with writing their own vows. And let me be clear that there is nothing wrong with using one of my vow samples. In fact, the words might perfectly express what you want to say to your beloved. But I also hear quite a few couples say they don’t know how to write their own vows, they don’t know what to say, or they worry that one set of vows will be longer or better than the other person’s vows because they are a better writer.
If you are open to educating yourself on how to write personalized vows, here are a couple of links that might be of help.

I loved working with Kristie and Rick in planning Amarion's baptism. What a sweet couple and fun family (and godparents) they have.
Here are Kristie's comments after the baptism: "Thank you for putting together a wonderful baptism ceremony for Amarion and sharing all the pictures of his special day for us to have and share with him when he gets older. It was a pleasure working with you and allowing Rick and I to customize the ceremony to how we like. I will definitely keep you in mind for any future events for our family as well as refer friends and family."
