Earlier this year… wow, all the way back in January…. a couple I married asked 3 of their friends to come up and read these wonderful movie quotes at the very beginning of their ceremony. I thought this was a lovely idea because it so clearly reflected the personalities of the couple, their shared appreciation for romantic movies and their great sense of humor. Your ceremony reading choices can be truly creative and meaningful to you, not just what’s expected. Enjoy!
Quote from the movie The Notebook – “The best love is the kind that weakens the soul, that makes us reach for more, that plants fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I hope to give you forever.”
Quote from the movie Love Actually – “Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think of the arrivals gate at the airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the twin towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. And if you look for it, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that love actually is all around.”
Quote from the movie Fools Rush In – “You’re the one! You are everything I never knew I always wanted. I’m not even sure what that means exactly but I think it has something to so with the rest of my life! And I think we should get married! Right now!”
