The couple, both yogis, opened their ceremony with the spiritual words of “Namaste” followed by a reading from A Sacred Space from “The Couple’s Tao Te Ching”
Your love requires space in which to grow.
This space must be safe enough
to allow your hearts to be revealed.
It must offer refreshment for your spirits
and renewal for your minds.
It must be a space made sacred
by the quality of your honesty,
attention, love, and compassion.
It may be anywhere,
Inside or out,
but it must exist.
“Although you’ll each walk your own path, remember to always put yourself in the other’s shoes. Love each other wholly, and never lose sight of the attributes of the other that brought you here today. Remember to always value each other. Although you will disagree at times, remember to respect one other’s feelings, needs and wants. Above all, never, ever lose your sense of humor. To say the words love and compassion is easy. But to accept that love and compassion are built upon patience and perseverance is not easy. Your marriage will be firm and lasting if you remember this. Throughout your lives, you will find refuge and support in one another. Should you ever doubt this, remember the words of this poem by Marilyn Monroe:
To the weeping willow:I stood beneath your limbs. And you flowered and finallyclung to me, and when the wind struck with the earthand sand— you clung to me.Thinner than a cobweb I, sheerer than any—but it did attach itselfand held fast in strong winds.”
Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter to the other.
Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now you will feel no loneliness, for each of you will be a companion to the other.
Now you are two bodies, but there is only one life before you.
And may your days be good, and long upon the earth.
May you be happy and safe, and may your hearts be filled with joy. May all beings live in security and in peace – beings who are frail or strong, tall or short, big or small, invisible or visible, near or far away, already born or yet to be born. May we all dwell in perfect tranquility.”

This year as a new calendar cycle begins, we celebrate turning the page and fresh beginnings at one of the most historic locations in the world.
Ka’ana Belize Boutique Resort provided the ultimate luxury experience for the couple. It was over the top spectacular. This intimate boutique style resort built in the center of the Mayan Empire focuses on world class amenities, gourmet cuisine and the landscape is gorgeous. The location is perfect for relaxation and adventure.

Upon reaching the ruins lies a hand-cranked ferry which took the couple across the Mopan River. From there, it’s an exhilarating and beautiful mile ride uphill to Xunantunich.
Congratulations to a lovely couple. It was truly a pleasure working with you for your big day in Belize Melissa and Gwaeron! Wishing you much love always.
