|“I loved her more and more, we made plans for now, and months from now, and years from now…as far as I’m concerned, we’re already married—our lives are intertwined in ways that are inseparable…we are going to be together forever.” —Dima|
|Affectionate by nature, there was no better reading to include in their ceremony, than e.e. cummings’ “i carry your heart”, a promise and a reminder they had also inscribed into the inner bands of their wedding rings.|

Ever indecisive, I often struggle with the simplest decisions. But this decision, arguably the biggest of my life, marrying you, has been the easiest one I've ever made. You are an exceptional man and I frequently find myself in awe of you. You're strong and smart, humble and sweet. You're disciplined and ambitious, spontaneous and fun. Meeting you has been my greatest joy. You are my balance, my source of strength and my inspiration. I am a better person because of you. Dmitriy, you are the love of my life.
So, today and always:
I promise to give you my deepest love, to choose you everyday, understanding that over the years we may encounter obstacles, but what we have is worth the work.
I promise to share in your dreams, to believe in you, to challenge you and to support you as you pursue greatness.
I promise to remain ambitious, always striving to offer my best self to you, to our marriage, and to our family.
On your worst days, I promise to embrace you, to lend you strength, and to help you move forward.
On your best days, I promise to laugh with you, to celebrate with you, and to do happy dances by your side.
I cannot wait to be your wife. I cannot wait to have beautiful, big headed, half-Russian babies with you. And I cannot wait to live the rest of my life by your side.
Я люблю тебя навсегда.
Kate, every day I wake up with the knowledge of how truly lucky I am. I look over at you lying next to me and I understand that of all the luck that I have experienced over my life, and I have been incredibly fortunate, meeting you has been the serendipity that will define me, my happiness, my meaning.Kate and Dmitriy, Final Cut on Vimeo https://vimeo.com/lovesickinc/review/173086637/01999d7d47
Nobody’s married life is perfect, or so I’m told. So I won’t promise you unrealistic perfection. And promising you my love and devotion will seem redundant; you’ve had it for several years now, and I will continue to only love you more as the years go on.
But I will promise to do my best to make our marriage perfect in our own special way, to keep making you smile and never take myself too seriously, to build a life with you, surrounded with those we love, that will be fulfilled and enchanted; that you and I, we will take on the world.
I promise you a blissful happiness in old age, when you will look back on our life together, the family we built, the adventures we had, the mountains we made seem like molehills, you will look back and know that I have loved you and treasured you more than words can describe.
I adore you, you are my joy, I carry your heart, I carry it in my heart.
