Wedding Dress: Skirt by Jurgita Bridal, Top was handmade, Viel from a friend.
Ceremony Arch Backdrop: Handmade. Followed Tutorial from Style Me Pretty

I started my vows at least three months before the wedding, but the challenge to get them right dawned on me every day. Everyday, I was adding, removing, chopping, thinning or giving more depth, constantly tweaking.
So I did what I did best, and left it alone for some time and went back to it a few days just before the wedding. The pressure to pull the wedding together was already effecting me but the pressure cleared my mind. 
In the end though, all I did was pour my nerdy heart out:

Hai, You and I know we could've crossed paths at least three years earlier. We could've been a couple for much longer. 
But we didn't and we weren't. We met at a time where we were finally ready for each other. 
...... I like to believe that when fate allowed us to meet, it was because it was meant to be. We met so we could guide one another to become even better versions of ourselves right here, right now. 

And we've had three years full of patience, understanding, fun, compassion, adventures, kindness, stubbornness, and most of all, love. 

So Hai, I vow to continue our journey with gusto, like Korra trying to achieve the Avatar state. 
I vow to be as strong as I can be for you, just like a level 20 D&D character. 
I vow, to walk by your side and support you like Pikachu supports Ash.
I vow, to bake you Anzac Cookies more than once a year. 
I vow, to not tell a soul your secret recipe for HFC. 
I vow, to love you more then I love my own iPod. 
I vow to kick anyone's ass if they say your car is anything other then a Jeep. 
And I vow that we will grow together to achieve everything we want in life. We will be the Super Sayan, a Pokemon's final evolution, the Luke Skywalker from Episode 6. 
And we would do it with flair just like One Punch Man's serious moves. 

Thank you for letting me be me and loving me for who I am. I vow to continue to do the same for you. My heart swells with love at the thought of our future together. 

So in saying that Hai, I promise that you will always have my Spider Staff....

I had asked eleven members across the The Battle Crusaders (our D&D group) and our friends to participate with my vows to Hai. In a Lord of The Rings fashion, our friends shouted out things like "And my Fireball, And my Javelin, And my Charm!" and I was really relieved Hai finally got what was going on as his face went from confusion to laughter. I asked him later on that day and he admitted his first thoughts were "Who are these dickheads trying to ruin my wedding?"
