“No union is more profound than marriage,
for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity,
devotion, sacrifice, and family.
In forming a marital union,
two people become something greater than once they were….
marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death.”
This was an excerpt from Rebecca and Marisa’s Ceremony. A moment that gripped us all - even me - I was choking up and fighting back the tears as I fought them to see to photograph these precious moments.
Earlier that week I was listening to Same Love by Macklemore, experiencing how far we’ve come. Just 2 ½ years ago we were still fighting for this right. I was struck with appreciation for humankind and our capacity for love and advancement.
Fast forward, to hear this quote at their wedding, an excerpt from the legal ruling that makes this union possible. Was unreal - Such a beautiful and surreal moment. What’s absolutely amazing is this was both Rebecca and Marisa’s favorite moment too!
Their wedding was full of love, joy, humor and fun! Their friends and family truly came together to support them and shower them with love. I think it speaks to who they both are, supportive, thoughtful, loving human beings who light up this world.
It was an honor to be a part of this beautiful experience and to get to know these two remarkable women and all the awesome people that they surround themselves with..
