He gently struck the side of their beautiful singing bowl three times. As the soft, strong, sound resonated across the rooftop deck and up into the universe, Evan Kavanagh opened up a space for John and Cheryl’s wedding to take place. Lavonne with Adorations created absolutely gorgeous, symbolic aisle art them. And as the ocean peacefully stood witness from behind, and their friends and family energetically held them on the opposing side, they were married. Their ceremony was so personal, speaking to a lifelong commitment that both John and Cheryl have taken as individuals and now together as one. This beautiful passage was read by Cheryl’s son:
“I honor the place in you
where the entire Universe resides.
I honor the place
of love, of light, of truth, of peace.
I honor the place within you where
if you are in that place in you,
and I am in that place in me,
there is only one of us.”
And so they are married! John and Cheryl are two of the most accomplished and incredible people I have had the honor of meeting. They’re both selfless and full of love and wisdom and gratitude. They’re both fierce and smart and driven. I have come to admire you both so much and I cannot tell you how honored I felt to be chosen to be in this place on this day beside the two of you. It has been an enormous compliment to me. Thank you for inspiring me to continue down a path where I follow my heart and my gut and my soul. I have so much love for you both.
