A wedding for the soul

Sept 1, 2012 was a Blue Moon.

“Once in a Blue Moon” seemed fitting for both of us, neither of us had ever intended on getting married to someone. Not because the past we had was so special or important, but because we are both very free spirited people, and the thought of being tied to someone that wasn't worthy seemed… like settling. So when we met, fell in love and moved into the life we have now, we were flying by the seat of our pants.

When we started talking about marriage we wanted to have both ceremonies together; Spiritual and Physical; however it didn't work for a variety of reasons, so we had to split them up. The plans we’d made were fun, but the fates stepped in and changed our plans, I’m pretty sure they just like to keep us on our toes.

We ended up in the middle of a Reservoir, floating in a canoe underneath the full moon and bright stars, making promises to one another in a very personal and quiet hand fasting ceremony.

That is the day my soul married my husband. It was the promises we made, the stories we told and the experience that made the private ceremony so special for us, like, eloping for the soul.

We decided our anniversary will be a week long every year. Sept 1-Sept 8.

Did you/Do you plan on doing anything different in your wedding that you kept semi-private?
