day 264
a special day for my friend Lanae.
she was married this evening !
to a wonderful Guy named Luke .
they shared the dusk wedding with us .
which was a soft beautiful candle lit ceremony.
with delish incense filling the air.
oh and i so wish i could say that my pics turned out great...
but alas....im not a happy camper ..these are the best of what i shot...
trying to hard ,i have so much shake in the shots
and i'm now convinced i do need a speedflash ..really soon
i may be able to get 40 shots out of what i took...not happy..
but the ceremony was so tender and loving ,
with mixed blessings from many faith.
i felt was privileged to be part of the ceremony.
here's the passage i read..
CHEROKEE PRAYER
God in heaven above
please protect the ones we love.
We honor all you created as Lanae & Luke pledge
their hearts and lives together.

We honor mother-earth
- and ask their marriage to be abundant
and grow stronger through the seasons;

We honor fire
- and ask that their union be warm
and glowing with love in their hearts;

We honor wind
- and ask they sail though life
safe and calm as in their father's arms;

We honor water
- to clean and soothe their relationship
- that it may never thirsts for love;

With all the forces of the universe you created,
we pray for harmony and their true happiness as they forever grow young together.

Amen.










if they only could have all been as clear and
gorgeous as this shot below ...
one of the few taken out the front ,
where there was a glorious sunny glow .
