Solstice Wedding

Minstrels serenade

Blessed union in the snow

Solstice marriage vows


Dear friends of ours got married on Wednesday in a century-old, snow laden orchard just outside of town.  It may well have been the most intimate and beautiful service I’ve ever witnessed.  What a glorious day!
