Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook wrote their own vows for their July 1 wedding, and like everything else about the couple — including their engagement announcement — their words were both heartfelt and humorous. We got a glimpse of what they said in Instagram videos over the weekend, but now Cook has shared the full text of his vows to his new wife via Instagram.

“Kaley…I hate you the least of all people in the world,” he began. “Outside of you I have no need for anything. Without you I am nothing.”

From there, he read something he wrote three days after they met: “We felt safe, challenged, and free. We could be who we are without thought for the ridiculous complexities of social norms. It was as if we were floating on a magic carpet not bound by the slings and arrows that entrap so many. We talked and talked rejecting the very idea of time or place. There is a rhythm and a pulse to us like ocean waves crashing upon the rocks; just like those waves on those rocks we feel like a force of nature. All these raw and beautiful feelings exude from deep deep within me from a tiny and at the same time vacuous corner. I guess that is the power of a true human connection.”

He went on to tell Cuoco that he fell in love with her the first night they met and has been devoted to her ever since. “I promise to understand you plucking my unibrow comes from a place of love,” he continued. “I promise to remove any errant insect that journeys into our home. I promise to love and take care of all our animals no matter what and how many we bring home.”

Above all, he promised to love her for the rest of their lives: “From this breath to my very last… I am yours.”
