I created this collage to celebrate my daughter and her husband’s 6th wedding anniversary, today. They were married January 12 in Shell Beach. Her husband made a surfboard called “endless Love” for all the guest to sign, and she made and decorated her dark chocolate, chiptole pepper wedding cake. Their best friend officiated as they stood barefoot in the sand with the waves unrolling in the background.
Aside from the births of my children and grandchildren, it was the happiest day of my life.
I wrote a post about that day six years ago Sea, Sky, Earth, Fire – My Daughter on Her Wedding Day, which began:
She was married beneath a cliff on the edge of the sea standing barefoot on the rocky beach. Barking seals sunning on rocks and crashing waves nearly drowned out the simple ceremony.
Hunchbacked boulders rose from the sea behind her like giant guardian sentinels. A single guitarist played flamenco music to match the red rose in her hair while the late afternoon sun glimmered across the waves.
Sea. Sky. Earth. Fire. All four essential elements holding the world together blended beautifully together that day.
Below are a few photos and memories that I tried to capture in my collage.
Happy Anniversary, Kelli and Andrew!
