Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
I met Rachel for the first time just 10 minutes before spending hours in a car with her and 2 other strange girls on our way to Port Aransas for a mutual friend’s bachelorette party. I think our mutual friend knew exactly who to pair up to become fast friends because the bond we all shared from that car was tight.
It was important to Rachel, fiercely independent, that the marriage reflect two individuals sharing a life together, rather than two becoming one. Something I feel is so important to keep in perspective when entering into a new stage of life. So, under the warm summer sun, Rachel and Michael laughed, cried and hugged and wholeheartedly celebrated the legal joining of a 8 year relationship, promising to continue to write, read, cook and support each other always. This eclectic summer wedding at the Wildflower Barn is created with exactly what makes my job so wonderful.
