Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be the shelter for the other.
Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be the warmth to the other.
Now you are two persons, but there is only one life before you.
Go now to your dwelling, to enter into the days of your life together, and may your days be good and long upon the earth.
– An American Indian Wedding Poem

Have an amazing day.

“Love is patient; love is kind
and envies no one.
Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude;
never selfish, not quick to take offense.
There is nothing love cannot face;
there is no limit to its faith,
its hope, and endurance.
In a word, there are three things
that last forever: faith, hope, and love;
but the greatest of them all is love.”
Have a wonderful day and congratulations !


Have a wonderful time soaking up all the love on your day – best wishes for many many happy years ahead!


It will be the most Graceful event…
May your love and beauty continue to flow as you start this new journey together. Bahut Shubhkamnayein (Best Wishes in Hindi)


Congratulations! I hope your life together will be full of harmony and beauty! All the best and have a great honeymoon in Charleston, too!

holly - livingston & porter

Someone told me before my wedding to be sure to take a moment with my husband and step away for 5 minutes….And look him in the eye and remember this moment…..It goes so fast and furious- so many brides never taste the meal they planned, or the wedding cake they agonized over, or spoke to a table of guests. It was the most memorable day of my life and I still remember walking away to this balcony looking out at all of the guests who LOVED us and traveled miles to celebrate with us…and giving my husband one big SMOOCH as MR & MRS….It was a moment I will remember forever.
I wish you lots of love and laughter! all the best, holly
