This is what Sanctuary is...
Rest, weary one.
Lay your head down.
You have travelled far.
I have no clever words for you.
No system to teach.
No image to maintain.
You’ll find no philosophy here.
No answers to your many questions.
I offer only presence.
A small kindness to repay yours.
I am no better than you.
My guru is life.
My lineage is love.
I do not separatet he enlightened from the unenlightened.
I teach nothing I do not live.
I quote not from books but from the cracks in the heart.
I see your fragility yet I see your immense power.
You are not broken.
Don’t let them tell you that you are broken.
We met long ago when dust settled to form worlds.
I think I saw your courage then.
Close your eyes;
I will keep watch tonight.
~ Jeff Foster

Secret personal vows are the best!!
Writing your own vows are hard but so worth it. Such sweet words shared between the bride and groom. Congratulations Hannah and Brendan!
Dream Tending - Honored and Blessed to be in this lineage of Dream Tenders. I am constantly astonished by the power and wisdom of night time dreams if only we take the time and care to tend them.
Beautiful montage of this December wedding. Good things happened in 2020 too! Karen Salinas Photography, LLC Arrowhead Inn Bed and Breakfast
What a beautiful location for an intimate wedding 😍

Coolest wedding dress ever! And she walked down the aisle to an an instrumental of Sweet Child of Mine by Guns and Roses. Beautiful images Ellie McKinney Photography
In a year full of uncertainty, one thing I know for sure is that these two are meant for one another.
Lauren and Kory are celebrating their monthiversary today and all I can think about is how lucky I am to have gotten the chance to connect with such awesome people.
Their attire had me ready to click away and I am so glad I got to be their memory-documenter.
Love you so big!
Elizabeth and Zachary. Stunning. I love that Karen Salinas Photography, LLC captured their loving gaze. They didn't take their eyes off one another once during their ceremony!

Is there anything better than a willow tree? Yes! A beautiful ceremony under a NCMA willow tree!
This NC Museum of Art wedding turned out to be everything Kat and Christopher wanted in a celebration: meaningful, romantic, and artful!

Today was the most perfect day to get married. ❤️
One of my two "Love Reunited" weddings this year. I am so happy for them. First time I have had a little ring prank by the groom! So sweet. Gorgeous Album by Payton Herring Photography
Hodges Wedding // Payton Herring Photography
These two had everyone in the ceremony laughing, crying, happy, and all of the above! These two rekindled their love after FORTY years. How precious! She wore a necklace on their wedding day that he gave her that many years ago. They read love letters to each other and it was that pure old fashioned kind of love. It was so beautiful to witness! Duane pretended he lost the rings, but they were attached to the grandsons and you could hear the crowd gasp! Good thing they let me know about this beforehand 🤣🤣 Then, we headed over to Well Traveled where they celebrated with friends and family!!
A beautiful September wedding and stunning photographs by Sharon Ashlie Photography
Shawna & James' wedding day was the kind of day you wish you could relive over and over. And not just because of the stunning ceremony, the gorgeous flowers, and the reception that looks straight out of a bridal magazine! But because they are the kind of couple that truly complete each other -- the kind of couple you look at, and smile because you know they are meant to be!
So much disruption for all couples who planned to get married this year. My heart goes out to them. Everyone who works to support weddings; venue owners, planners, photographers, videographers, caterers, bakers and my fellow ministers are so hardworking and passionate. My heart is with them as well as we continue to navigate this year.

A sweet love reunited! What a joy it was to officiate their wedding and I spotted 2 deer outside of their cabin after their ceremony. An affirmation, I believe! Arrowhead Inn Bed and Breakfast Jon Warlick Media
Congratulations to Marcia and Paulo on their beautiful Arrowhead Inn wedding. A love story that has lasted from their youth in Brazil to a beautiful proclamation and devotion to love each other the rest of their lives. This is what love stories are made of. Please help us celebrate Paulo and Marcia! Video is courtesy of Jon Warlick Media.
A part of my responsibilities as a wedding minister/officiant is educating couples about the “technicalities and legalities” of getting married in North Carolina. I wrote a brief synopsis for The Oaks at Salem newsletter.

It's Capture the Sunset Week! The first thing I put on my wedding day timelines is the time of the sunset. Then, I can plan around that, knowing what we'll have daylight for and when we can build in time for stunning sunset photos like this!

A spiritual lesson for our hearts at this time...
Pandemic. A poem by Rev. Lynn Ungar.
What if you thought of it
as the Jews consider the Sabbath— the most sacred of times?
Cease from travel.
Cease from buying and selling. Give up, just for now,
on trying to make the world different than it is.
Sing. Pray. Touch only those
to whom you commit your life.
And when your body has become still, reach out with your heart.
Know that we are connected
in ways that are terrifying and beautiful. (You could hardly deny it now.)
Know that our lives
are in one another’s hands.
(Surely, that has come clear.)
Do not reach out your hands.
Reach out your heart.
Reach out your words.
Reach out all the tendrils
of compassion that move, invisibly,
where we cannot touch.
Promise this world your love--
for better or for worse,
in sickness and in health,
so long as we all shall live.
What a beautiful couple. They put so much of themselves into their ceremony. Beautiful Video HoneyDew Films

Beautiful wedding video by Carolina Story Film Company. Amazing, beautiful couple - And a puppy for a wedding present!
Krissy and Paul's love story shows us that there is such a thing as destiny. These two insanely adorable dog parents gave us all the feels at their outdoor wedding at the gorgeous Merrimon-Wynne House. When I met with Krissy and Paul, I got to meet their sweet Sasha, a golden doodle who immediately stole my heart just as easy as it was for Paul to steal Krissy's. I am so enamored by these two genuine people and so honored to have been a part of their wedding day!

Why, yes, I would love to do your Lord of the Rings/Harry Potter/Game of Thrones/Video Game Extravaganza Wedding Ceremony! (And any other non-traditional or traditional ceremony that fits you!)
Non-Traditional Wedding Readings “Love is patient, love is kind.” If you’ve been to a wedding, especially a church wedding, you’ve probably heard this more than once. It’s a classic, beautiful sentiment of love and a great passage to read when celebrating the start of a marriage. There’s...
Honored to be a Holy Listener in my work as a minister/chaplain/spiritual director.
"I suspect that the most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention. And especially if it's given from the heart. When people are talking, there's no need to do anything but receive them. Just take them in. Listen to what they're saying. Care about it. Most times caring about it is even more important than understanding it. Most of us don't value ourselves or our love enough to know this... We connect through listening."

Well this is a nice surprise. Thank you to the beautiful venue The Oaks at Salem for featuring me.
Today’s vendor spotlight is showcasing Sanctuary Spiritual Care. Be sure to check them out! Sanctuary: Interfaith Spiritual Care
The wedding ceremony is an important ritual as couples unite in marriage. I work closely with each couple to create a memorable, meaningful and personalized ceremony that they will cherish for years to come. The ceremony should reflect each couple's personality, their love story and their hopes and dreams for their marriage. As an Interfaith Minister, I help each couple envision and craft their desired ceremony, whether it is spiritual, religious or secular. After determining the rituals and elements that best reflect their love and commitment and their family, cultural and/or religious traditions, together we create the perfect ceremony. LGBTQ Coupleswarmly welcome.

I've always loved this.
Just WOW to the love poem and the florals!
I am not the first person you loved.
You are not the first person I looked at with a mouthful of forevers. We
have both known loss like the sharp edges of a knife. We have both lived with lips more scar tissue than skin. Our love came unannounced in the middle of the night. Our love came when we’d given up
on asking love to come. I think
that has to be part
of its miracle.
This is how we heal.
I will kiss you like forgiveness. You
will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises between us like flowers in a book.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar of your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally, finally found you.
And I will not be afraid
of your scars.
I know sometimes
it’s still hard to let me see you
in all your cracked perfection,
but please know:
whether it’s the days you burn
more brilliant than the sun
or the nights you collapse into my lap
your body broken into a thousand questions, you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
I will love you when you are a still day.
I will love you when you are a hurricane.
Mouthful of Forevers
- Clementine Von Radics
