alicia & anthony's storybook destination wedding, blaylocks mansion

May these vows and this marriage be blessed.
May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah. 
May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm.
May this marriage be full of laughter,
our every day a day in paradise.
May this marriage be a sign of compassion,
a seal of happiness here and hereafter.
May this marriage have a fair face and a good name,
an omen as welcome
as the moon in a clear blue sky.
I am out of words to describe
how spirit mingles in this marriage. - Rumi

When the couple looks like this. Gets married here.  Walks down an aisle of rose petals.  Recites poetry. Reacts whole-heartedly.  And invites their 25 guests to "warm" their rings. All to the soundtrack of a live guitarist.
It's storybook, really.
But for Alicia and Anthony, the simplicity of their wedding day - complicated only by planning from Australia - made for an authentic, romantic, heartfelt celebration of souls with their nearest and dearest.  
And this is my heart work.  Thank you for letting me share it with you.
