One of my best friends and mentors, Coy Wire, came to the house to congratulate us and visit. Little did he know he was about to be asked to officiate our big day. I played with Coy for three years with the Atlanta Falcons and really got to know him as a man of great core values and morals, and I respected the fact he holds his own marriage in such high regard. I couldn't of thought of a better person to stand up there with me and Kim.
Having been a part of and seeing many weddings in my time, I came to realize that the vows are the most significant part. It is your promise and verbal commitment to the person you will spend the rest of your life with. Every other part of a wedding is for you and your guests to have a great time, so naturally for me I could see no other way than writing those vows in my own words. As you could see, Kim was unsure about writing her owns vows. She was so emotional at the thought of standing up there and having to do it. But if Kim had decided not to write her own vows, it wouldn't have mattered to me, because I know in my heart how she feels. But you will see how that turns out.
