Celebrity and Famous TV Wedding Vows



If you are writing your own wedding vows, it can be hard to put into words what you really want to say to the person who means the most to you in your life.  Famous love poems often sounds artificial, especially if they were written a few centuries ago.  Song lyrics often talk about love, but not necessarily commitment.  Fortunately, though, professional writers have written some beautiful vows for TV couples that can provide you with some inspiration! Here are a few famous TV wedding vows:

Friends – Monica and Chandler Wedding

“The One with Monica and Chandler’s Wedding” is a double length episode of the television sitcom Friends. It first aired on May 17, 2001 as the finale of season seven. With the groom’s back and Joey finally there to marry them, Monica and Chandler exchange their vows. We know it is just a TV show, but this one warmed all our hearts.

Monica and Chandler Wedding Vows:

Monica: Chandler, for so long I wondered if I would ever find my prince, my soul mate. Then three years ago, at another wedding I turned to a friend for comfort. And instead, I found everything that I’d ever been looking for my whole life. And now, here we are, with our future before us – and I only want to spend it with you, my prince, my soul mate, my friend. Unless you don’t want to. You go!

Chandler: Monica, I thought this was going to be the most difficult thing I ever had to do. But when I saw you walking down that aisle I realized how simple it was. I love you. Any surprises that come our way, it’s okay, because I will always love you. You are the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. You wanna know if I’m sure? (He leans in and kisses her.)

Carla: I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life, but you’ve managed to erase them all, because each and every one of them has led me to you.

Turk:  When I look into your eyes, I see the future. I see kids, I see minivans…you name it, I see it. The weird thing is, though, as long as I see your smile, none of that stuff scares me.

Gray’s Anatomy: Burke’s and Christina’s Wedding Vows

Burke: Cristina, I could promise to hold you and to cherish you. I could promise to be there in sickness and in health. I could say ‘til death do us part, but I won’t. Those vows are for optimistic couples, the ones full of hope, and I don’t stand here on my wedding day optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic, I am not hopeful. I am sure, I am steady, and I know that I’m a heart man. I take them apart, put them back together, I hold them in my hands. I am a heart man.

So this I am sure, you are my partner, my lover, my very best friend. My heart beats for you. And this day, the day of our wedding, I promise you this… I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hands. I promise you me.

Will you love her, comfort her, honor and keep her, so long as you both shall live?

Priscilla, do you take Elvis to be your wedded husband, to live together in bonds of marriage? Will you love him, comfort him, honor and keep him, so long as you both shall live?

I, Elvis, take thee, Priscilla, to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish.

I, Priscilla, take thee, Elvis, to be my wedded husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish.

    In 1985, the live TV nuptials by Wayne Eric Chew to Victoria Lynn Sanderson occurred in Times Square NY, airing on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve, with the vows recited right before the Time’s Square Apple timepiece descended into 1986.

    The non-celebrity ceremony is considered the first reality show wedding in the modern era of television. The Chews appeared several more times on Clark’s rocking new year extravaganza in the late 1980s and 1990s. Chew appeared in a minor role within two or three episodes on the ABC soap, General Hospital. He also has done numerous television and radio commercials, mostly regionally aired.

    In addition, Chew produces music events in North Carolina and also has written and produced scripts for radio and television. He is working on a Christian Pop Musical called “Modern Day Jesus,” to be produced in 2012. A novel is also in the works. He has also co-written several pop songs with Alan Dusal and Dennis Fura.

    Wayne and Victoria have been successfully married for 25 years. They have four children at their home in North Carolina. Chew, a health care professional is his steady vocation, working as a surgical assistant and technologist.In the summer of 2010 Chew completed the required Massage Therapy Course and is contemplating state licensure as a Medical Massage Therapist. Chew is also a junior at Ashford University, majoring in Medical Administration. He is evaluating entrance into Physician Assistant programs, and a possible attempt at applying to medical school. Victoria is a medical biller in Raleigh NC.

    Chew explains, “Being the first, and only couple to be married on Clark’s historic new year’s that magical night back in 1985 was a memory that really is a fairy tale recollection. I really would like to recite our vows this coming new year’s eve. maybe with one of my daughters who are currently engaged. It would be too radical if we set some Guinness World Book record for the most couples both getting married in Time Square, along with a record for couples reciting their wedding vows. It would be one of the most wildly romantic events to ever happen in Times Square on New Years.”

    Whatever Chew does, television can be sure that it will be remembered.

    I would just like to address Wayne Chew, this is the only way I found to contact you. My boyfriend was Josh Chew. I just wanted to touch base with you. I know you’re aware of his sad, unfortunate death. I’m just trying to reach out to you. He never knew you and I know he wished you would have kept in contact with him. I loved him with all my heart and I just wanted to let you know your son was the best thing that ever happened to me. I regret that I never met you and he didn’t either.. I just hope you told the kids you own up to that they had Josh and Ryan as brothers too. I respect you, found God and I hope he leads you in the right direction but please don’t ever discount my boyfriend as you didn’t know him but I love him and always will and you’ll never know what you or I lost. If you ever want to know anything about him, feel free to contact me.
