Botanical Garden Wedding Covered in Cherry Blossoms – Style Me Pretty. Tom and I wanted our ceremony to be special for us as well as our guests. So, we got down on one knee and proposed to Kiera and asked her to marry us! Kiera created a ceremony that was undeniably memorable, filled with humor, heartfelt sentiments, and elements that really engaged our guests. Most notably, she incorporated aspects from Native American traditions. One of these was the invocation of the seven directions, which allowed our guests to feel a part of the ceremony by summoning energy from all around us, and reminding us to stay in the present and to focus on what was happening. Kiera also used a beautiful Pendleton blanket in the ceremony to wrap us for the moment we became one, as husband and wife. Tom and I used Steven Curtis Chapman’s “I Will Be Here” for our vows. Kiera assisted us in finding our “let love grow” theme which came to life with the readings she helped us select for the ceremony and was truly complimented by being outside in the beautiful garden surrounded by all the trees and flowers coming to life for the season. The funny thing is, for the 13 months leading up to our wedding, I had envisioned the ceremony would take place in the cherry blossom esplanade. When Kiera and I went to the garden earlier during the week of the wedding, we saw that due to the long winter only a handful of the cherries had blossomed. What we found instead was kismet. The fully bloomed magnolia plaza complimented everything we had planned for the ceremony: from the compass rose sculpture, where Kiera stood, to the color of the magnolias against the bridesmaids dresses. The plaza was perfectly suited for our ceremony, creating an intimate yet long aisle, flanked by blossoms at every side. In contrast with the organic shapes of nature, the straight lines of the garden’s architecture created a balance in their opposition. The ceremony came together with Kiera’s direction and she worked with us to bring our vision to life. – Noelle Rogers Kiera bestowed upon our wedding a deep connection to the flow of energy and unity between all things, so that the union went beyond just an official marriage with my beloved, but rather extended our commitment to the realm of the universe as a whole (to which we are entangled nonetheless). Identifying and deepening our sense of these profound interconnections with nature, spirit, and all forms of life; the rituals she shared with us in finalizing our devotion have long-lasting implications for our goals of an open spiritual life together on the earth and within co-society. – S. Wrenn, Artist
Kiera officiated at our son Nick’s wedding in October 2014 at the Prospect Park Picnic House. She worked closely with the Nick and Caitlin before the wedding to create a unique, personal and meaningful ceremony. Kiera is an artist, teacher and a writer (among many other things) so the imagery chosen and the storytelling quality of the ceremony reflected her soulful approach to the event. So many of our friends commented that they got to know Nick and Caitlin as a couple from the ceremony. It set the stage for a truly beautiful occasion. – Evelyn Intondi and Michael Powell
Text from original speech for New Year’s Day Ceremony: On this sparkly and bright new year’s day, there are many aspects that have brought us all together in one place. Today is marked not only by a new year, but by a new moon. We are at the precise phase in the moon cycle when the moon disappears from sight, and there is great significance to the new moon: it is a magical time of new beginnings. It is a time to set goals, to perform rituals, and to charge our intentions and life visions with power. What a perfect day for a wedding! The moon is of particular significance to our lovers, here, and to myself, as we three share the same birth sign, the one that is governed not by a planet, but by the moon itself…
