I had the honor of working with Margot and Adam to create their wedding ceremony. Like most couples, at first they weren't sure what they envisioned for their ceremony. And again like most couples, after our initial meeting a picture began to emerge. Soon Adam and Margot wrote me with their wish to include the five elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit.
Each of the five rituals we wove into their ceremony held deep meaning and significance for them, but perhaps most important was the element of Earth, represented by their wedding rings. Imprinted with fingerprint-like swirls, their rings symbolized the joining of their lives; the foundation upon which they would build a new life and a new family, together.
Last week Margot gave birth to their first child, a daughter.
