“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.
When it is over, I don’t want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened,
or full of argument.
I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.”
― Mary Oliver
these two lovers, jessica and robert, they savor life to the last drop. he is a writer and she is an artist and together they are now on the brink of new life with inspiration bursting from the seams. i had the honor of photographing their wedding a few years back where i saw each detail heartsewn together into a great tapestry that was wrapped around them and warms them now as they embrace this next chapter. they drove up to petaluma, ca from los angeles while i was in northern california last month and we met in the flower fields, basked in the setting sun and watched the moon rise high above the wheat fields. i can say i saw it then and feel it now, these two are no doubt married to amazement.
