June 30th 2007, New Durham, New Hampshire.
This was one of my weddings from my old website, I don’t have much of the information left, but I do remember this couple well, and wanted to include them on the new page. They had a beautiful intimate wedding lakeside with a fabulous cook out to follow. Lobster and gourmet cakes were part of the feast. I still remember the lavender flower cookies, they were so delicious! I actually ran into this couple at Kittery Point, ME where I was officiating a wedding for another couple and it was their first wedding anniversary, they couldn’t believe their wedding officiant was at the place where they had chosen to visit for their anniversary. How great is that?
Their reading was from the Prophet
‘Then Almitra spoke again and said…
“And what of Marriage, master?”
And he answered saying:
You were born together,
and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings
of death scatter your days.
Aye, you shall be together even in the
silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love.
Let it rather be a moving sea between
the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous,
but let each of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone
though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together, yet not too near together.
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress
grow not in each other’s shadow.’
Thank you for helping us have a lovely day on Sunday and for the
pictures you sent us.
All the best
