{Borrowing From the Past}

Dear Bride-to-Be:
Wedding ceremonies “borrow” from the past—words, music, gestures—and when you participate in wedding rituals, you are “borrowing” wisdom from another time. As you tap into those ancient wisdoms, you are tapping into your own inner wisdom. That’s why when you’re going through these intimate rituals, it can all feel strangely natural and familiar . . . “Have I been here before?” It’s not the ritual itself; rituals are just a vehicle to take you into your heart center. What is familiar is you! The real you gets to emerge. (Ahhhh. The magic process of the rite-of-passage.)

The most memorable of wedding ceremonies draws the best from the past yet makes it beautifully present. Therefore, whatever you “borrow” to create your wedding, stir it up with your own inspired magic so it comes from your heart! Bringing it from the past, giving it your presence.

Love. Listen. Let go.
...with love from Cornelia
