From the Bride

When I first found the meadow, it was late winter. It was a beautiful, grassy hill. Simple. And it felt right. When we arrived back in Georgia the week of the wedding from where we live in Colorado, we went right out there so I could show Jason who’d only seen pictures. The field was in full bloom with wild red clover. Our friends went to the meadow early the morning of the ceremony and set the entire space for us using natural elements, flowers, a borrowed table from the airbnb, and a spool of white satin ribbon that my grandmother gave to us the day before. When we entered the field, I was completely broken open by the love in the space. What a gift they created for us. After everyone left we ran through the woods and got our clothes dirty, skinny dipped in the cold mountain water, and celebrated the important day in the way that we love to be! -Katherine

 

From the Groom

Katherine,

my love

Take all of me.

Empty my water into your cup so that we can be filled again.

Take all of me,

the glimmering light at the surface and the dark foreboding beneath.

The height and depth of me are inseparable,

linked by some unknowable magnetism,

by some terrible and wonderful mystery I’ve surrendered to,

linked like the depth of the sea to every foreign shore we’ll travel together.

Take all of me,

and with it this simple ring,

a modest stone of blue topaz in the shape of a drop of water.

Like the ocean that shows in a thousand different azure hues across the world,

there are hues in the light of the sun, and hues in the light of the moon,

hues in the shallows and in the deep,

my light will fall upon your eyes in a myriad of ways,

enter your cup in a myriad of ways,

and yours will mine, as we grow old.

But know now and always. I am for you.

I am with your heart, and you are with mine.

This simple stone will tarnish,

and so will we,

but if you take all of me, you’ll polish my soul.

You’ll refine my love and make it worthy of forever.

However long that seems to be,

it won’t be long enough.

Take all of me,

so that you’ll know this one drop is the entire ocean.

I love you.

-Asa
