I am a total sucker for quotes. You can bet that I have Pinterest boards upon Pinterest boards filled with motivational or sweet, sappy quotes saved for a rainy day. I definitely have a few hanging around the house. I even kept a journal growing up to hold all of my favorite quotes (before the age of Pinterest) that I still keep handy.
So when it came to planning our wedding, we knew we had to include a few quotes to help capture our delightful and weird love. We selected three quotes. One that we both loved and one each to represent the way we felt.
The one we both loved is pictured above.
We are all a little weird
and life’s a little weird
and when we find someone whose
weirdness is compatible with ours,
we join up with them
in mutual weirdness
and call it love.
My husband and I both openly embrace our weirdness and find that our individual weirdness blends well together. We both enjoy the little things in life and celebrate the moments that make life fun. Whether it’s playing in bubbles at Disneyland or taking goofy photos to get on the video board at baseball games, we always strive for laughs and fun, even if others may think we’re weird.
The quote I chose was:
It seems to me we have a lot of story left to tell.
My husband and I have known each other for over half our lives and thus, have an extensive history with each other. Simply put, we have a deep past. However, as I look forward, we have so much more story to our relationship to build and share. And I very much so look forward to it.
My husband chose this quote:
I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
I would never want to speak for my husband but I can say that he put a lot of thought into the quote he chose. As mentioned before, we have a very long history together and he stated this quote best summed up the way he has felt and continues to feel about me. Aw, so sweet!
I love seeing quotes at weddings. Whether funny or sappy, quotes are a great way to tell your story and connect with guests. My one word of caution is there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Use quotes sparingly so they carry the impact you’re hoping for. People will love them – I promise!
