I can’t help but feel the full impact of being in love when I read this verse from Pablo Neruda’s poem XVII. My heart races open, my cheeks flush and for an moment there is nothing but rapture.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
I love you in this way because I know no other way of loving
but this: in which there is no I or you,
so intimate that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so intimate that when I fall asleep it is your eyes that close.
It is without complexity or pride that Valerie and David love. They love straightforwardly and their love, one born of over two decades of knowing each other is inclusive and kind beyond measure. What a joy to capture you both on your Wedding Day at The Golden Gate Club and being Madly in Love. Enjoy!
