Ours is written in blood: A wedding reading for book lovers #Ceremony Advice#books#literature theme#readings Posted Aug 20 2021 Guest post by Tomo Lazovich Photo by Crystal Scheidies Photography from this bookish wedding My wife and I recently had our three-year anniversary, and as a result, I've been reminiscing about our wonderful, quirky, very personal wedding. Much of it was inspired by bits and pieces we picked up on Offbeat Bride. We are also huge book nerds. I recently published a love poem inspired by that fact, and I thought it might make a great reading for other bibliophiles like us! Of course, Offbeat Bride was the first place I thought of sharing it, since this community was so wonderful to us as we planned our own wedding. Book nerds, rejoice! Here's the poem for your wedding: Some stories adopt the same arc exposing, rising, peaking, falling, and unraveling ours is only the intrigue beautiful and wild, forever climbing some books experience the same fate printed, opened, devoured, discarded, and neglected ours is written in blood yours and mine, forever commingled you are my life i am your book don’t ever stop writing Related Post Bookish couples: 18 wedding readings from literature to tickle your amygdala Bookish couples: we know you and we love you.
