A few of our most favourite photos of Adriel and Ani’s day at the Ojai Valley Inn and Meditation Mount. It was beyond perfect to start our wedding season with these two humans and their incredible families. It may sound strange to say, but its a real rarity these days to put the emphasis of a wedding day on the ceremony. As times and priorities shift and evolve, its easy to put the focal point of the celebration on, well, celebrating. While there’s absolutely nothing at all wrong with that, we almost had to take a step back and deep breath when we witnessed Adriel and Ani place the emphasis on WHY they were all celebrating in the first place: the vows and the rite.
These two planned their day around their cultures, backgrounds, vows, family and invited a small intimate group to a mountain in Ojai to witness their love and the futures and paths combine. It was ethereal in every way. No rushing through vows. No quick “let’s get it over with and party”. It was impossible not to get teary and damn well cry at parts. THIS is why we’re all here. Their wedding will forever hold a little corner in our hearts. When the world moves at a lightning speed, its beautiful to stop and breathe in the mountain air, and remind ourselves why we’re all here.
