i love "i carry your heart with me" - ee cummings. i'm in the same situation. j&i were both raised catholic, but were not having having the whole catholic ceremony. i think i might do one religious reading for our older family members then one romantic reading.

I loved that! We're doing The Apache Wedding Prayer, it goes a little something like this...

Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter to the other. Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other. Now there is no more loneliness, for each of you will be companion to the other. Now you are two bodies, but there is only one life before you.
Go now to your dwelling place, to enter into the days of your togetherness and may your days be good and long upon the earth.


we are using e.e. cummings poem "i carry your heart" as well...i know it might be somewhat trendy now, but it has always been my favorite poem...and we are also reading "on marriage" from The Prophet.


I've had this one bookmarked for months, too :-). It's just so real and beautiful.
