The only requirements by the State of North Carolina are that the bride and groom each declare their intent to be married to each other and the pronouncement by a minister or officiant.
There are no rules as to what words must be used so you are free to make those decisions. While using traditional vows crafted by me with the popular “repeat after me” format is very stress-relieving for many couples, you may chose to write your own vows.
Whatever your choice, I can email you many samples of vows, poems or readings to choose from or use as inspiration to write your own.
We’ll work together to make sure that your vows express your love and unwavering commitment to each other in the way you want.
