 The Bunting Bash: That Moment of Yes | We Wed

The Bunting Bash: That Moment of Yes

It was time for my favorite part of the ceremony… our vows.


As we stood facing one another, hands clasped and giddy smiles plastered on our faces, our pastor started us off.

In the presence of God and before these people I now invite you to exchange your vows. Through the sacred vows of marriage, you are saying that who you are and who you want to be are best achieved through this union. Please join hands, as you exchange your vows, repeating after me.

I, Miss Bunting, choose you, Mr. Bunting to be my husband.

I promise to love you, to honor you, to respect you and to support you, as long as we both shall live.

This is my solemn vow.


I, Mr. Bunting, choose you, Miss Bunting to be my wife.

I promise to love you, to honor you, to respect you and to support you, as long as we both shall live.

This is my solemn vow.


Then it was our turn to exchange the personal vows we had written. We didn’t want to stress ourselves by trying to memorize our vows, so we each had a little cheat card that we brought out. It was pretty easy to tuck an edge in between our fingers while keeping our hands clasped, and our photographers angled themselves so you can hardly even see them.

I went first.



Mr. Bunting, I love you with every fiber of my being, and I am continuously amazed by how much my love for you grows. Just when I think I couldn’t possibly love you any more than I already do, I stretch and discover a new corner to fill.

You are the sun of my day, the moon of my night, and the highlight of my every waking moment. You know me better than anyone else and you love me for who I am: a perfectionist and a daydreamer… you love me, even though I don’t really understand how computers work.



Thank you for anticipating my needs before even I know them, I don’t know how you do it, but you do. You never fail to find a way to make me smile, especially when I need it the most. Thank you for loving me and accepting me and everything that comes packaged with me, like my two cats, even though Zoey drives you crazy sometimes.



Today, I promise to be your wife and your best friend, to love you unconditionally, to support and defend you in difficult times, and always appreciate you and all the little things you do.

I will try every single day to make you happy. I will give you my ears when you need to vent, my eyes when you need my insight, and my voice when you need a defender.

I vow to spend the rest of my life with you, laughing, sharing, creating memories, and thoroughly enjoying whatever adventures may come our way.


And I promise to try and play some of your favorite video games when no one else is online, but mostly, I promise to be completely and utterly yours, now and forever.


Then it was Mr. Bunting’s turn.



Miss Bunting… You are simply put the best thing to ever happen to me. You are my voice of reason and motivation. You keep me in check and bring out the best in me. You are my sun and moon, the earth and the stars. You are my life and love, my confidant and counselor. You are my best friend and my zombie apocalypse partner. You really are everything to me.


I want to thank you for the laughs. Thank you for knowing how to make me smile. Thank you for saying exactly the right thing at exactly the right time and for understanding my need for video games and every other nerdy interest I have. Thank you for being so passionate about everything you do. The care and creativeness you put into even the littlest of things serves as great inspiration to not only me, but to those around you.



I will make sure that you are always loved and that you know it. I will always anticipate your needs and do my best to fulfill them. I will be patient and compassionate, with not only you but with your cats as well. I will be your knight in shining level 30 armor, there always to protect and serve you.

I vow to always care for you, to cherish you, to love you to no end. I vow to make you smile every day for the rest of our lives.



And I promise to always be standing next to you, ready to take on whatever life throws our way. I promise to consult with you on every major electronic purchase I make. And finally, I cannot stress this enough, I promise to try to clean the cats’ litter box. Sometimes. Maybe.



Our guests giggled right along with us at each nerdy reference and cat joke. It was the perfect balance between sincerity and humor.


But it’s still not official yet! Next up, we exchange rings.
