STEPHANIE + DORON
BUTTERLAND | NEWSTEAD VICTORIA
"The ceremony for our wedding was very important to us. We wanted it to be deeply personal, meaningful and something that represented us and what we mean to each other.
Working with Ellie on the ceremony plan was one of the highlights of our wedding planning. We had a broad idea of what we wanted but Ellie helped us refine it and create something special and unique. She is a wonderful writer with a deep appreciation for poetry and prose, so was able to find us readings and poems to compliment the rest of the ceremony that she wrote beautifully. She is such a warm hearted, fun and relaxed person so the entire process was a dream!
On the day, Ellie performed the ceremony with grace and we received so many comments on how beautiful it was. We couldn’t have been happier with how it came together.
I highly recommend Ellie if you are looking for a personal, unique and touching ceremony with someone who will pour their heart and soul into the whole process."
A BIT ABOUT THEM.
This is one powerful love.
I will remember this ceremony as one that brought me right into the mindset of two people who really cheer for each other. They're proud of who they each are and the mighty love connection they've found.
The day was one big beautiful party, but you know, it's all the little celebrations that I saw between them during our planning that I feel the luckiest to have witnessed.
Oh and this: these guys are F U N N N.
A sample FROM their ceremony.
I'd like to share a poem with you all.
"Understand, I’ll slip quietly
away from the noisy crowd
when I see the pale
stars rising, blooming, over the oaks.
I’ll pursue solitary pathways
through the pale twilit meadows,
with only this one dream:
You come too."
The poet, Rilke, speaks to the aspiration of understanding, consciousness, adventure and partnership that Doron and Stephanie share for their lives together.
When the three of us met to talk about today, I asked Doron and Stephanie what they hoped their marriage would be like. Doron said, “well, it’s making the ultimate commitment to love... and it’s an adventure, isn’t it?”
I will never forget the exhilarated look those words brought to Stephanie’s eyes… the look of a woman loved and in love. A woman who has been completely understood and equalled.
Well just like the wanderers in Rilke’s poem, today is about adventure. It is also about joy, friendship and of course LOVE.
