    READING TO REPLACE OCAMPO’S LETTER
    Officiant: “It was once said that falling in love is like being the first to discover the most beautiful thing in the world, to find something so lovely that no-one else had even noticed. Love often starts in little ways. It comes quietly with a smile, a glance or a touch but you know it’s there because suddenly you’re not alone.
    Love means finally finding a place in this world that shelters you and is your very own, where you feel you have been forever and where you will live, grow and learn.
    The beautiful thing about love is that its an experience we share with all people throughout the world, and yet to everyone who falls in love it is the most unique and precious thing in the world.”

    1.Are Groom and Bride persons you know well?

    And always support and encourage you…
    I promise to love you in good times and bad…
    I will help you when you need it…
    And step aside when you don’t…
    You are my best friend…
    And I will love and respect you always…”

    Officiant: “Bride do you accept Groom as your beloved and wedded husband?”
    Bride responds: “Si Accepto”

    Officiant: Bride please repeat after me:
    “ I do not need you, I choose you…
    I choose you today in witness of all the people who love us…
    I choose you tomorrow in the privacy of our hearts…
    I choose you in strength and weakness…
    I choose you in health and sickness…

    I will choose you, over all others…
    Every day, for all the days of my life.”
