We were greeted with a heavenly sunrise view of Mt. Hood; then a fog that seeped into the forest & truly felt mystic. When we arrived at the base of the mountain a Native American tribe was having a ceremony asking for blessings from the earth: calling for rain and safe passage for salmon during the winter months. We exchanged our vows in front of the people we love the most surrounded by sacred mountainous land overlooking a volcano.
I remember there was a moment during our first dance when Andrew said “Oh wow I forgot everyone was here.” and that’s how it felt. There was no separation of persons but only love circulating between souls who were open to receive the magic happening around them. The love was tangible, physically present. It all felt easy & familiar as if we had done this before, loved so deeply in our past lives that we are connected now in the present.”
