i have been thinking of tiersha and josh since their wedding. i knew i wanted to share the softness of the day and their relationship, but wasn’t quite certain how to do that appropriately with prose. i considered allowing a favorite poem to be the commentary, but couldn’t find anything that was absolutely fitting for them. yesterday i attended an amazing-out-of-this-world workshop. when i walked into the workshop venue there were several frames hanging, each with a phrase inside. i started reading and knew i had found the perfect dialogue to describe the day and this couple.
frame one: there is only one happiness in life: to love and be loved
frame two: we can only learn to love by loving
frame three: there is no remedy for love but to love more.
frame four: love is a song that never ends
frame five: love is the movement
frame six: love does not alter the beloved it alters itself
frame seven: love those who love you
frame eight: love is a choice you make from moment to moment
frame nine: love is not a victory march
frame ten: he is not a lover who does not love forever
frame eleven: true love begins when nothing is looked for in return
frame twelve: love is all we have
frame thirteen: the first duty of love is to listen
frame fourteen: a man is not where he lives but where he loves
frame fifteen: above all, love each other deeply
tiersha and and josh, i know you do. i could feel it. thank you for letting me be a part of your day; so grateful to have been there. may you frame each other with the powerful love you felt on your wedding day!!
frame sixteen: i’m still learning what love is
may you learn love’s profound depths and chasms, forever, together.
congratulations to you both!!! i am so happy for you! kj
big thank you to my second shooter rachelle; it was fun spending some time together!! 🙂
