Money for nothing, and your wedding for free
After the commercial, we learn that we are in New York nine days before the wedding. In a joint interview, Rob explains that yesterday was their biggest day yet. It turns out that the first task of today is to write their vows, so they plunk down on the couch with a laptop to try to figure out what to do. Rob says that not only did they need to write the vows, but this gave them an opportunity to "breathe" in the middle of all the craziness. He tentatively says to her, "It should be, like, a couple of sentences of ," and then he trails off. Amber jumps in to help. "'Amber, you're the most wonderful woman on earth,'" she offers, and Rob laughs. He suggests that she can write about herself and he can write about himself. "That would be kinda funny," he says with a grin, in just the voice he used for similar comments in tenth grade, often earning himself a punch in the teeth, I'm sure. Amber tries looking up something online about how to write vows. I'm guessing they're looking at this, based on the title Amber rattles off. But she explains that as they looked over the instructions, it seemed kind of dopey. Again, I think they're reading that purple page. So she suggests they just head out on the roof and write for a while. They go up and settle into separate tables. Rob explains to us that their vows might not come out particularly traditional, but then, they're not having the world's most traditional wedding anyway. It's true. Traditionally, a wedding like this would be a miniseries. Amber tells us that she isn't worried, because she knows he'll love whatever she says and she'll love whatever he says. Aw, I vote she includes that. After they write for a bit, Rob announces that he has a good start. "How much?" Amber asks, a little nervously. "Let me see." He holds it up, and you can see that he has at least a good-sized paragraph. "Wow," she says happily, and Rob smiles his "how do you like them apples?" smile. Amber says that ultimately, she enjoyed writing down why she loves him and wants to be with him. And again, I feel the "aw" approaching. "I love you," he says as they head inside. "I love you, too," she says. And then he says, "That should be it! That should be the vows right there." Indeed. That, and one "sweet-haht." Works for me, man.
