Wedding Vows & Cartier Jewels for Wild Hearts

Words to bind wild hearts, by poet Victoria Erickson in collaboration with Cartier and Nice Plume

Searching for wedding vows to bind wild hearts and mesmerised by the magic of evocative words, we asked one of our favorite writers Victoria Erickson, to dream up a collection of vows for free spirited ceremonies… all paired with Cartier jewels.

“I love you the way fire spreads across forests lit from a single match. I love you the way seeds erupt through the cool soil, reaching for the sun. I love you past the center of grief, the space of sleep, the petals falling off roses, and beyond the pale of the moon and depths of the sea. I love you with a strength and devotion so large there is no other way except this path, with you right here, walking alongside me.”

– Victoria Erickson

“You are a blazing instrument of your own personal language. I will love you tenderly. I will love you savagely. And I will be sure to read your chords. So I can love you in a way you will always understand.”

– Victoria Erickson

“I’m picturing us on rooftops. I’m picturing us, on rooftops. I would like to stand with you, to gaze out at a sparkling city, and then descend with you down the circular steps of fear, and through the building of change, then onto the open streets lit by the moon that is ours. I would like to hold your hand. I would like to hold your hand through uncertain avenues, as the night rolls into day and day into night, and the city evolves, and people come and go, and seasons rise and fall. And it will be rooftops, and people and the city, and us. Always us.”

“I believe there are people that have lived in you all along before unraveling into tangible reality. When I say this, I mean with a clear, unwavering certainty. I recognized you before seeing. I wanted you before understanding. I knew you without knowing. And I choose you without hesitation..”

– Victoria Erickson

“This is where we’ll begin and the only thing we’ll know of time. Shed your tired shoulders the way nature always does. Breathe in the cooler air. The quiet light. The solid ground. The distant river. The rising wind. The ancient sun. Undo all else but this.” 

– Victoria Erickson

“I want to stand with you on the edge of a mountain, a valley, or cliff by the shifting sea. We can look. We can learn. We’ll take our sweet time exploring this path, while unraveling the stories we cannot yet know, or see. Our lives. This space. You. Me.”

– Victoria Erickson
