Well hello there! We hope you’re having a wonderful weekend wherever you are, and doing lovely lazy things with your Sunday afternoon!
Seeing as it’s a Sunday, we thought it might be a good day to share a ceremony reading with you guys.
We know how hard it is to find sincere readings, that hit a note with both you and your partner, but we think this poem, I Carry Your Heart With Me by E.E. Cummings, is particularly beautiful.
We’ve noticed this one cropping up in one or two of our real weddings, (like Amber and Avi’s gorgeous Connecticut nuptials) and thought the words were so sweet and romantic, that we just had to share them.
I Carry Your Heart With Me
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
Pin It & Keep It…
Isn’t it beautiful?
