Wedding Poetry

Many couples mention that they'd like to have a reading during their ceremony, but have no idea where to begin looking.


When I first meet with a new couple, I give them samples of readings and poems to give them a jump-start in their search for the perfect reading.


Here is one of my favorites:


You Came, Too by Nikki Giovanni

I came to the crowd seeking friends
I came to the crowd seeking love
I came to the crowd for understanding

I found you

I came to the crowd to weep
I came to the crowd to laugh

You dried my tears
You shared my happiness

I went from the crowd seeking you
I went from the crowd seeking me
I went from the crowd forever

You came, too
