Blessing for a Marriage

May your marriage bring you all the exquisite excitements a marriage should bring,
and may life grant you also patience, tolerance, and understanding.

May you always need one another -
not so much to fill your emptiness as to help you to know your fullness.
A mountain needs a valley to be complete;
the valley does not make the mountain less, but more;
and the valley is more a valley because it has a mountain towering over it.
So let it be with you and you.

May you need one another, but not out of weakness.
May you want one another, but not out of lack.
May you entice one another, but not compel one another.
May you embrace one another, but not out encircle one another.
May you succeed in all important ways with one another, and not fail in the little graces.
May you look for things to praise, often say, “I love you!” and take no notice of small faults.

If you have quarrels that push you apart,
may both of you hope to have good sense enough to take the first step back.

May you enter into the mystery which is the awareness of one another’s presence -
no more physical than spiritual, warm and near when you are side by side,
and warm and near when you are in separate rooms or even distant cities.
May you have happiness, and may you find it making one another happy.
May you have love, and may you find it loving one another!

-James Dillet Freeman


We used this blessing for our ceremony. I feel like it was perfect for us.

This photo is one of my favorites so far. It was 30 some odd degrees outside, raining/snowing/sleeting and these photos all turned out amazing! Stacey rules!

Frontside of Zach’s forearm tattoo

"Cherish, Protect and Defend Her" are lyrics from the NC state song and he is (obviously) from Durham :)

Back side of Zach’s forearm. Seriously, this kid has half of my portfolio on him.

"Cherish, Protect and Defend her" are lyrics from the NC state song and he’s from Durham, North Carolina :)

Also, the bull is a pretty iconic symbol for the city, the movie “Bull Durham” about the city’s minor league baseball team,  the Durham Bulls. It’s just a good old home town tribute tattoo :)

I almost always hate photos of myself tattooing, mainly because I usually
make horrible faces when I concentrate. …this one may be an exception to that.
