Josh and Reva Wedding 1999
Josh: Well, everything’s perfect.
Billy: And well it should be. Because today, my little brother’s finally going to marry the woman he loves. And let’s hope this time it’s for good.
Josh: No, no, no. Don’t even say that. This time it is most definitely for good.
Josh: Have you got the rings?
Billy: Are you asking me if I’ve lost the rings?
Josh: No, I’m just asking if you have the rings, that’s all.
Billy: Well, then, let’s take a look and see if I have the rings. Yes, right there where they were ten minutes ago.
Josh: Okay, that’s all I wanted to know. Thank you.
Billy: I know you’re not nervous.
Josh: I’m not nervous at all. I feel great.
Josh and Reva’s Wedding Vows
Minister: Would the bride and groom like to say their wedding vows now?
Reva: Yes, we’d love to.
Josh: Assuming, of course, all these folks have finished saying their vows. Everybody done? All right. Because I would very much like the opportunity to tell my bride how much I love her.
Minister: By all means, then.
Josh: Reva, I have known you for so long. And I know you so well. And I still just can’t get enough of you. I stand here before you today, and every day, just amazed that you’re mine. The moment you walked into my life, you also walked into my heart. And you’ve never left it. And we have been through so much. And the one thing that has remained constant, the one beautiful thing that will always be constant in our lives, is our love for each other. And I promise to you my love, without limit. And to be a part of your dreams…to have you be a part of mine. And to try real hard to understand you as best I can.
Reva: Good luck there.
Josh: And to be there for you, nearby, when you need me. And to watch our love grow and grow and grow in the years to come. You are my world, my heart, and my love. The future is ours, and my love is yours, always.
Reva: Well, Joshua, the first time I looked into your eyes, I knew you were my soul mate. I didn’t even know what that meant back then, but I knew I’d found mine. I don’t even remember breathing without you, because that’s how much you’ve always been a part of me. You’re… You’re my other half. You’re the essence of my soul, and my life. And you’re the only one who knows me down to the depths of my soul. And I know that I’ve been a handful. I mean…Pop always says I am…anyway. And I know there have been times when you’ve wanted to change me. But in spite of everything, you loved me, always. You just loved me. You are my life, Joshua. And I promise you my love without limit. To laugh with you in joy, and to grieve with you in sorrow. To find strength for you in your time of need, and to be vulnerable to you in my own. I promise to share everything I am, and everything I will be, so that we can grow together in love. The future is ours. And my love is yours, always.
Josh: I, Joshua lewis, take thee, Reva Shayne, to be my lawfully wedded wife from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, in joy and in sorrow, to love and to cherish all the days of my life.
Reva: Why, I oughta… (Laughter) I, Reva Shayne, take you, Joshua Lewis, to be my lawfully wedded husband from this day forward, in sickness and in health, for better and for worse, in joy and in sorrow, to love and to cherish you all the days of my life.
Minister: Before this gathering, Josh and Reva have promised each other their love, and have given each other rings as signs of their deep commitment. Therefore, I now declare that they are husband and wife. You may kiss your bride.
Josh: Thank you. Always, Reva.
Reva: Always, Bud.
