Truly romantic sentiments sometimes seem to be few and far between these days. Gone are the days of epic poems and heartfelt sonnets about the intensity of love and the power of connection. However, modern equivalents to these declarations can be found in a variety of mediums: lyrics to contemporary tunes, long and thought-out text messages, even certain phrases in the form of graffiti can convey beautiful ideas about love.
Television acts as a point of inspiration for many facets of our life experience: many people choose to travel to a certain destination, attend a particular school, or enter into a specific career after first learning about these options on TV. Additionally, we at Inside Weddings have seen countless nuptials with television show-inspired details sprinkled throughout. Many couples bond over the shows they enjoy together, so it’s no surprise that lines from these series end up playing a part in their big day. We put together a short list of our seven favorite love quotes from some of our favorite television programs that are idyllic for cocktail napkins, framed elements, ceremony programs, and many more elements of your wedding.
“When I’m with her, I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything.” – Cory Matthews, Boy Meets World (1997)
“But love doesn’t make sense. You can’t logic your way into it or out of it. Love is totally nonsensical. But, we have to keep doing it or else we’re lost and love is dead and humanity should just pack it in. Because love is the best thing we do.” – Ted Mosby, How I Met Your Mother (2014)
“When all my dreams come true, the one I want next to me… it’s you.” – Lucas Scott, One Tree Hill (2006)
“See? He’s her lobster!” – Phoebe Buffay, Friends (1996)
“You’ve got to forget about logic and fear and doubt. You’ve just got to do everything you can to get to the one woman who’s going to make all this worth it. At the end of the day, you’ve got to jump.” – Jim Halpert, The Office (2013)
“So of this I am sure: you are my partner, my lover, my very best friend, my heart. My heart beats for you. And on this day, the day of our wedding, I promise you this: I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hands; I promise you me." – Preston Burke, Grey’s Anatomy (2007)
“I love you and I like you.” – Leslie Knope, Parks & Recreation, (2011)
