The Bride Wore White and Other Wedding Poetry

Updated on November 1, 2014

Poetry Inspired by Weddings at Stone Mountain Lodge and Cabins

In this lens are original Wedding Poems inspired by actual weddings at Stone Mountain Lodge and Cabins in Lyons, Colorado

Stone Mountain is the site of many outdoor weddings in the Colorado Mountains!

We have had pipers and harpists, string quartets,

Mariachi bands and Elvis impersonators too!

All there to provide music and entertainment to help create

the most personal, special day for the Bride and Groom.

I hope you enjoy the following Wedding Poems:

The Bride Wore White and Cherish - A Wedding Vow

The Bride Wore White

Inspired by an actual wedding ... Created from a melange of weddings plus my imagination.

The bride wore white

The groom a kilt

The mother-in-law a gown of gilt

The maids wore pink

The dad wore green

Fresh petals all about were seen

The piper played When Irish Eyes

The harpist Too Ra Loo Ra

The cloggers clogged a pleasant jig

Applause and hallelujah

The tables were festooned with lace

The platters high with lamb

The bar replete with whiskey

And servers asking Sir?, or Ma'am?

The guests were silent for the toast

And lauding words were spoken

"Let persons so together tied

Stay fore'er unbroken"

With rapt attention listened

Upraised crystal glistened

Clinks heard all around

Not too boisterous a sound

The bride wore white

The groom a kilt

And only tears of joy were spilt

A Selection of Bagpipe and Harp Music

Cherish - A Wedding Vow

To be read by the groom and then the bride during the exchange of rings

I shall cherish you

For all my years

Wipe from your eyes

All your tears

Laugh with you

Through humor fully

Protect you from

The wayward bully

Be your crutch

To stand you neatly

Share your pain

Lift you completely

If there be children

We shall love them

Kiss them, hug them

Keep them whole

A ring I give you

On gentle finger

As evidence to all

It shall there linger

(he says)

We are bound, united

In time of strife

And too, in time of joy

You are my wife

(she says)

We are united, bound

Never long to be apart

In mostly good, some bad

You are my heart
