Best Engagement Wishes to Couple



You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.



And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.



To love and to be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.



You are the best thing that’s ever been mine



Marriage is a mosaic you build with your spouse. Millions of tiny moments that create your love story



Soul meets soul on lovers’ lips



Doubt thou the stars are fire; doubt that the sun doth move; doubt truth to be a liar; but never doubt I love



My heart to you is given: oh, do give yours to me; We’ll lock them up together, and throw away the key



It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.



We loved with a love that was more than a love
