Imagine ... you gaze into the eyes of your beloved as the two of you stand on a cliff overlooking a wide expanse of ocean, and you are surrounded by your closest friends. As the officiant pronounces you married, you kiss for the first time as a married couple. The ocean waves join the onlookers as they roar with applause and it feels like nature itself welcomes you into this union. At this moment, as you feel the ring on your finger, the ring that represents unity, it is as if you are one with your love and with the passing strangers, even with the world itself. This is the culmination of months of planning and excitement ... finally - your wedding day!
