Emilee & Jonathan // KauaŹ»i

“In the midst of uncertainty,
I shall sow love.
Here! Now! I call to you:
Let us together live The Great Peace that we are.
May we give no fear for all our days,
here, there, and everywhere.”

~Sensei Wendy Egyoku Nakao.

Emilee & Jonathan chose to recite this vow together towards the end of their ceremony.
As they spoke these words, they looked up at each other trying to hold their smiles back.
The ebb and flow of the ocean and the wind that made the palms sway became louder, more prominent.
Family and friends grinning ear to ear. Holding hands and leaning onto each other.
It all came together in that moment.
