On what was the 6th anniversary of their meeting, Adina and Keegan decided they would get married. A lot had happened since then; they had 2 children, and Adina had started the uber-cool Wren and Rook Photography.
Given that history, and who they are (comfortable, authentic, open), a “traditional wedding” was simply not a fit for them. Instead, they invited those closest to them to a 30th birthday dinner for Keegan. Only when their guests were gathered did the truth unfold and everyone was led to a (decorated) forested spot.
” I want you to know that Keegan and Adina thought long and hard about how they wanted to get married. They made a conscious decision to invite each and every one of you. You are the ridiculously awesome irreplaceable people that they wanted to share this moment in time with.
You have all been a big part of their lives and their relationship…and although their original idea was to run away – just the two of them – they decided in the end, that not having you all here with them to share in their happiness just didn’t feel right.”
The ceremony was relaxed and real. After the initial surprise (and delight), everyone warmed to the idea of helping me marry the couple. Their breathtakingly thoughtful vows were delivered with great intention. We included herbs and flowers into a fragrant shower of joy at the end of the ceremony.
“You have kissed a thousand times, maybe more.
But today the feeling is new.
Today, your kiss is a promise….
Keegan, you may kiss your bride.”
