I have been secretly swooning over Dove’s wedding dress since she first showed me a photo of it when we met earlier this year. I wish I were flouncing around in it while typing this blog post! Dove and Blake have an incredible story of destiny, heart ache, decades of love and separation, and coming full circle back to each other. Their wedding day was powerful beyond words and it was so gratifying to witness this moment in their lives. Their story is truly movie-material, and it’s their very own. I especially loved that they incorporated one of the most powerful quotes into their ceremony:

“I honor the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells, I honor the place in you which is of Love, of Integrity of Wisdom and of Peace. When you are ┬áin that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are One.”

Thank you, both, from the very bottom of my heart for allowing me to document your wedding day.


Nick Ivory had us all amazed at his crazy magic skills!
