If travel is important to you and your partner, let these Walt Whitman wedding vows inspire you. These vows include excerpts from the Walt Whitman poem “Song of the Open Road,” plus a reading that’s a mashup of both “Song of the Open Road” and Whitman’s “Song of Myself.”
“Your thoughtful heart, generous soul, and endless patience for my bathroom humor is unmatched. You never cease to remind me of my place in your heart and your life. You continue to give me space to grow, share my story, be authentic, and feel all my emotions to their fullest. Becoming your wife is a joy but becoming one with you is really the honor.”
“I love how much joy you find in every day experiences, whether it’s snuggling the cats, going for a walk, or singing along with the themes to our favorite TV shows. You’ve reminded me that there’s joy in simply existing, no matter the circumstance.”
Melanie and Eric’s Middle Earth fantasy wedding was fantastic enough, but their vows tell the rest of the story. Bonus: pictures from their equally epic engagement at Breitenbach Castle!
