they read their vows there on the cliff under the Koa tree. The wind stopped as so to listen to their words and they softly made their promises to one another.
“I love you more than words can express, and I’m so lucky to be standing here with you today. On top of this canyon, I promise to give you the love and respect that you deserve every day. I will support you like the winds beneath the wings of the birds in this valley, and comfort you like the warm sunsets over the horizon for all the days of my life. Crystal, Aloha au ia ‘oe. I love you”
“I knew that you were special from the first hug you gave me at my Marchwood apartment when we were only acquaintances. It was gentle and kind – it was a hug that left me feeling loved. From the beginning of our journey together I could feel in my heart the kindness of your soul…Together we have discovered new dimensions of love. Every opportunity that we have to care for each other is a privilege. You are a gift to me in this lifetime “
i took the photograph and lowered my camera. i walked over to where peter was standing, he put his arm around me and we stood together taking in power of what they spoke to eachother as my eyes welled up with tears. there was just something so special about these two in this place. the sound of the waterfall in the background of the canyon and and the stillness all around us. the love they have for eachother is matured and true. i felt so honored that we got to be there to not only witness but to also capture this rarity of love in photographs. it truly did create magic, and i think this was one of the most inspirational evenings of my career so far. every time i get to photograph and enchanted elopement i believe in what they stand for more and more.
