Big Luscious Matrimony

It’s been so long since I’ve visited with you all here on these pages. So much has happened and I’ve travelled great distances; from Spain to France to California. But more significantly is the distance I’ve travelled in my own personal evolution.

Over the past few months I dug my toes deeply into the warm, earthy dirt that my relationship with Larry grew from. In a beautiful ceremony in Dripping Springs, Texas we deepened our roots by marrying each other amongst the ancient oaks and our loved ones.

It was a kooky, sweet, touching, tearful, sacred, perfectly imperfect ceremony led by our sweet Goddess, soul-sister, Laura Plumb. My maidens danced down the aisle to “You Can Count on Me by Bruno Mars. I walked down with my dear friend, Brian Wright to “Ong Namo” by Snatum Kaur. 

Oh my Beloved
Kindness of the Heart
Breath of Life
I bow to You

And I’m coming home
And I’m coming home
And I’m coming home
And I’m coming home

These are the words I walked down to, it felt as if I were coming home to my soul mates, heart. It was very touching for both of us. Before I could step out the door, Finnegan took my bouquet in exchange for this ring bearer pillow, which was indicative of the entire ceremony.

After we kissed sealing our vows forever, we danced back down the aisle with everyone in tow to Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes’, “Home.”  Are you seeing a theme here?

Despite all the crazy disruptions of dogs, toddlers and sobbing tears it was the most moving, original, reflective ceremony I had ever witnessed and being a former wedding photographer, I’ve been to my fair share of weddings  (I wonder if all brides feel this way :o).

I wanted to share our first 8mm wedding highlight clip with you all.

Big Luscious Love to you all,

The newly coupled, wedded, amalgamated, hitched, espoused, blissfully rooted in love, Katariina!

Well This is it!!!! (but I forgot to post)

I can’t believe it is finally here! The Big Luscious Wedding Ceremony Weekend in Austin. Well technically it is in Dripping Springs.

Am I ready? You may ask. Well most people have said that I’m very calm for a bride to be, now this could be that I’m a bit older & this isn’t my first rodeo (if you know what I mean), but I tell them that it is because because I’m heavily medicated then I just laugh, because that is not true. I think it must be my nature.

ugh!!! overwhelm

I don’t have much time to write because I still have to make programs. I’m such a procrastinator.

I’ve wanted every moment of the planning of the wedding to be the wedding as well. With intention and being in the moment and loving the moments knowing that I was infusing my intention in everything I made and deepening our roots as a family.

My best friend, Ginger, planned & hosted a beautiful Bridal Party Bonding weekend for us all in Temecula. She was so creative & colorful & my sister, Kristeen helped decorate everything perfectly.

It was a deep, sweet weekend with all my girls, all of whom I’m so excited to have in my wedding.

I made this out of old sweaters!!

Okay there is so much I want to share but I must finish this program in the next hour. I will share the festivities with you on the other side!!!
