How long would it take you to write wedding vows so beautiful, eloquent and heartfelt that you’d feel comfortable enough to enter them into a national E! Network online contest?
Surely, if you even mustered up the gumption to give it a try, you’d dwell on every word, rewrite every sentence a dozen times and, if you really wanted to take it seriously, you’d probably get all of your friends’ opinions on the draft version.
Megan Robinson Huwe did exactly the opposite.
Upon seeing a commercial for a contest that was pegged to the release of the February 2012 Rachel McAdams movie “The Vow,” Megan sat down, and in a few minutes, she wrote the vows she wanted to say to her fiancé, Peter Huwe, a former Shepherd Center patient who sustained a C-6 to -7 spinal cord injury in a diving accident in 2005.
