Beatles Week | The Things We Said Today

You know about our contest for FREE wedding photography right?? Ok just making sure.

This was one of my favorite details from our Beatles’ shoot. The vows!! If you were going to have a Beatles’ themed wedding, you may as well write your own vows based on their lyrics… because there’s so much good stuff in their songs! For reference, here are his and hers vows (with no overlap) written purely from Beatles’ lyrics.

Beatles Session-16His

 I’ll tell you something I think you’ll understand. When I say that something, I wanna hold your hand. The sun is up, the sky is blue, it’s beautiful, and so are you. You know I love you, I’ll always be true. So please, love me, do. If the sun has faded away, I’ll try to make it shine. There is nothing I won’t do. Anytime at all, all you gotta do is call, and I’ll be there. I’ll give you all I’ve got to give, if you say you love me too. I may not have a lot to give, but what I got I’ll give to you. I’ll love you every day girl, you’re always on my mind. One thing I can say girl, I’ll love you all the time.You don’t realize how much I need you. I’ll love you all the time and never leave you.Please remember how I feel about you. I could never really live without you. Remember that I’ll always be in love with you.

Beatles Session-101Hers

 Who knows how long I’ve loved you, you know I love you still. Love you forever and forever. Love you with all my heart. Love you whenever we’re together, love you when we’re apart. When I’m home, everything seems to be all right, when I’m home, feeling you holding me tight. It’s such a feeling that my love, I can’t hide. Life is very short, and there’s no time for fussing and fighting my friend. We can work it out. Bright are the stars that shine, dark is the sky. I know this love of mine, will never die. Though we may be blind, love is here to stay and that’s enough. Someday when we’re dreaming, deep in love, not a lot to say, then we will remember the things we said today. Love is old, love is new, love is all, love is you.Beatles Session-17

Drive My Car

Asked a girl what she wanted to be
She said “Baby, can’t you see
I wanna be famous, a star on the screen
But you can do something in between”

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I’m gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I love you

I told a girl that my prospects were good
And she said “Baby, it’s understood
Working for peanuts is all very fine
But I can show you a better time”

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I’m gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I love you
Beep beep beep beep yeah

I told that girl I can start right away
And she said, “Listen baby I got something to say
I got no car and it’s breaking my heart
But I’ve found a driver and that’s a start”

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I’m gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I love you
Beep beep beep beep yeah

All You Need Is Love

Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time
It’s easy

All you need is love

All you need is love, love
Love is all you need

Nothing you can know that isn’t known

All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need
