“Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your root was so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is.
Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.”
The first wedding at which I cried. Such beautiful, beautiful touches. I loved all the spoken words, including the vows. I’ve yet to meet anyone “preach” if you will more beautiful words at a ceremony than Vicky (Vicky Jones, Lay Minister, Wedding Officiant, First Unitarian Society-Madison 608.215.7621—VERY IMPRESSED WITH HER). The rings were passed around for everyone to warm with thoughts of love, beautiful music, such engaged family and friends. Everyone was there to celebrate and enjoy the marriage of Alexis and Evan. Two in-love fantastic people. Katie and I were so lucky to be able to photograph the two of them. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I hope the rest of the evening went wonderfully–and you are enjoying more family and friends time today!
