Bohyun and Michael are two of the most grateful people I’ve ever met, and they had a beautiful wedding at the San Francisco University Club. Since nothing I can write here can hold a candle to the promises they made to one another during their ceremony, I’m posting their vows below.
Michael’s vows (Why Do I Love You (Melody of Love) by Jim Reeves):
Why do I love you
I love you not only for what you are
But for what I am when I’m with you.
I love you not only for what you’ve made of yourself
But for what you’ve making of me.
I love you for ignoring the possibilities of the fool in me
And for laying firm hold of the possibilities for good in me.
Why do I love you
I love you for closing your eyes to the dischords
And for adding to the music in me by worshipful listening.
I love you because you’re helping to make of the lumber of
My life, not a tavern but a temple, and out of the words
of my everyday not a reproach but a song.
I love you because you have done more than any creed to make me happy.
You have done it without a word, without a touch, without a sign.
You have done it just by being yourself
And after all, perhaps that’s what love means.
The older I get, the more I realize how difficult it is to meet a same spirit. You’re the best thing that ever happened to me. You are honest, sincere, smart. You rarely do the same mistake twice what I say please not to do. You are accepting my good and bad. You love me just the way I am.
When I’m with you, I take pleasure in the little things.
Our Five Guys bacon cheese burger craving in middle of the night, the sky 10 minutes before sun goes down,
the moment you starting weird creepy dance in front of mirror after shower.
The world is generally a lighter place when you are in my sight.
I think I’m truly blessed to be a part of your life which as of today becomes our life together.
There’s nothing preventing me and you from loving each other and being some kind of world-class shining beacon.
With my whole hearts, I stand here and promise you, we are together forever. I love you.
