Carissa & Duane

WHAT MADE IT SPECIAL

In Winter last year we made these pictures together :) I’d strongly recommend first taking a look at those as a recap before reading on :)

Fast forward half a year, and this beautiful day finally arrived! The amount of planning and DIY behind the scenes was massive – truly a labour of love by all involved :)

The venue was just something else – the most magical spot, so peaceful, the perfect place for the beginning of an ‘ever after’ :)

There are many things that I could say, but I feel like Carissa & Duane’s vows that they wrote for each other say it best:

 I love you. I pledge to grow in my Love for you. I pledge to nurture our Love for it is loving you that nurtures my soul.
I love you because you are the One who completes me.
I do not so much seek to heal you, but to embrace our Love that fills our Life as a way of healing each other.
I promise to support your growth and share the fullness of myself.
I promise to honour you by being open to all the expressions of your true self.
Above all, I promise to be true to you and true to myself so that we may grow in our Love that joins us as one.

I promise to be your companion, lover and friend, your partner in parenthood, your ally in conflict, your greatest fan and your toughest Adversary, your comrade in adventure, your student and teacher.
Your consolation in disappointment.
Your accomplice in mischief.
Your strength in need and vulnerable to you in my own.
To share with you a relationship of love, tenderness and of laughter.
I love you and you are my closest friend. Will you let me share my life and all that I am with you?

Riss & Duane – wishing you a marriage that will be filled with crazy adventures and that the love you have will only multiply with time :)

PS as I was a bridesmaid, there were several people who picked up my camera at various stages to take pictures for me – Jodi, Terri-Jean, Mark and of course my awesome hubby, thank you so much :)
