Need a romantic Princess Bride reading? As you wish...

A Princess Bride wedding reading from the book itself? Inconceivable! The Impressive Clergyman would be psyched for this particular passage from the book version of The Princess Bride. You'll find lots of awesome ceremony fodder from the movie, too, but this time we've got a Princess Bride reading with a literature vibe. Shall we see it? (Anybody want a peanut?) I couldn't resist! On to the reading…

“Do I love you? My God, if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches… I have stayed these years in my hovel because of you. I have taught myself languages because of you. I have made my body strong because I thought you might be pleased by a strong body. I have lived my life with only the prayer that some sudden dawn you might glance in my direction. I have not known a moment in years when the sight of you did not send my heart careening against my rib cage. I have not known a night when your visage did not accompany me to sleep. There has not been a morning when you did not flutter behind my waking eyelids…

I love you. Okay? Want it louder? I love you. Spell it out, should I? I ell-oh-vee-ee why-oh-you. Want it backward? You love I…

I’ve been saying it so long to you, you just wouldn’t listen. Every time you said, ‘Farm Boy, do this,' you thought I was answering, ‘As you wish,' but that’s only because you were hearing wrong. ‘I love you’ was what it was, but you never heard.”
The Princess Bride by William Goldman
