3 Beautiful Couples. 3 Inspiring Paths. 3 Very Different Ceremonies.

Over this past weekend, I had the happy pleasure of getting 3 beautiful couples so very hitched!

As I ponder these past few days,  I honor the power of love and how it brings people together – often in ways and places that are unexpected and magical.

Kapil and Sarah were married in an Inter-faith Hindu/Christian wedding ceremony at the Salish Lodge, surrounded by 50+ family and friends who could not stop smiling.  We celebrated a guy and a girl from different parts of the world who came together in profound love and incorporated ritual and practices from their individual Hindu and Christian traditions.  (photo)

KapilSarahGanganePatrick and Renee traveled from Texas to Woodinville to be married in a sweet and intimate ceremony for “2,” at the Willows Lodge, accompanied by their best friends, Preston and Kari.  You’ve got to love a Cajun girl and a Cape Cod boy who get together with so much festivity and love!

Jason and Wunmi celebrated their 3+ year relationship with a beautiful and formal wedding ceremony, including a Military sword ritual, at the Salish Lodge yesterday morning, with great emotion and the deep knowing that their unique marriage path will indeed be an uncertain adventure.

You see, Jason is career military and “has to go back” – today.  Wunmi joins the ranks of military wives whose sacrifice is personal, poignant and deep.  Jason, may the Gods keep you safe and bring you back to your Beloved.

Love.  Wow.
