What a amazing wedding celebration! Early on a glorious fall morning, we gathered at the edge of a lake amidst the colorful leaves of the forest. Denise and Dieter’s intimate gathering included Denise’s beautiful daughters and a chorus of frogs! As we walked through the woods to the ceremony space, the couple was surprised by several of Denise’s family members, who had flown across the country in secret to join the party, and were hiding in the woods among the pines and moss.

Their ceremony included a traditional Celtic handfasting and a beautiful reading from Rilke, offered by Denise’s brother Gary. It was truly a sincere and joyful celebration of their life together.
