Afoot and lighthearted, take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before you,
The long brown path before you, leading wherever
Say only to one another:
Camerado, I give you my hand!
I give you my love, more precious than money,
I give you myself before preaching or law:
Will you give me yourself?
Will you come travel with me?
Shall we stick by each other as long as we live?
-Walt Whitman, from “Song of the Open Road”
This poem was read during Amy and Bryan’s sweet ceremony, and it just seemed so perfect for these two.
Bryan and Amy are smart, ambitious, and driven individuals that will go far in this world. The road is completely open before them – they can choose to go or be or do whatever they’d like in life, and they have so far.
Amy took a turn from her former career, went to law school, and is now a dynamite lawyer practicing patent law. Bryan graduated from grad school at UCSD on the day of their wedding (I’m not kidding – graduation was happening just down the road), and like the vast ocean that spread out below them during their wedding ceremony, they will go as far as their dreams will take them.
Their wedding was simply the both of them turning to one another and saying, “Yes, I will stick by you – through whatever adventures life brings our way – as long as I shall live.”
Amy and Bryan designed a perfect day from top to bottom at Scripps Seaside Forum – from the breathtaking beachfront ceremony to the sweet florals bursting with peonies all the way down to the gold rimmed place settings for each guest. They even chose to do a donut bar for dessert, which guests loved!
Thanks to Rachel of I Do… Weddings and Events for coordinating a perfect day, and to Blush Botanicals for designing such breathtaking florals. Amy wore her layered Hayley Paige gown like the classic beauty that she is, JD Musik kept the dance party going all night long, and Pure Cinema captured all of the moments on video.
This is definitely one of those weddings that will fill your pretty-meter and keep you going for a long while!
