Design your wedding

The Power of Beginnings

I once had a spiritual teacher who often talked about the power and magic of beginnings and endings… and how it is so important to do them both really well. I will forever be grateful for his expanding my awareness in this way.

Weddings are extraordinary events. And a same sex marriage, a legal one at that, is profound. A super powerful beginning. Maike and I learned a lot from our wedding, and both of us were so surprised to learn just how much isn’t talked about in the various blogs, books and with wedding planners. So, it is my heartfelt commitment to share content in a similar yet different light, wedding tips that will contribute to you in ways you can’t imagine – either in this blog, on Facebook, Twitter, through others comments or through products.

My desire is
to inspire,
share different ways to think about your wedding
after, and,
take some stress off,
and add pleasure in.
give you great ideas so you can expand your possibilities
and make your love last
long after your day.

I intend to post every few days, and if all goes well, in the next week or so I will have a very juicy surprise for those who provide your name and email address in the “Stay in Touch” section above.

Let us know what you think… Like us if you Like us… and comment if this resonates with you.

Let’s create something really special together, a refuge of beauty, really useful content and gobs of inspiration.

Big Love,

  1. a midst my winter your laughter makes my morning a sweet breath of spring… great cedars bow gracefully as you walk by.. creation anticipating what may come… whitest of snows pale in your presence.. rain… fire… wind… revealing for earth to see… your gentle urgings… to live great lives… there is none like you… no.. no one as lovely .. so lovely.. to me ….

  2. Wow! This is one of the most beautiful wedding videos I have seen. The love beaming from both of you is overwhelming. I have not met you, Maike, and have not seen Linda in years. But I don’t recall seeing such radiation emanating from her! Tears of joy and happiness!

    This video could be a promotion for allowing gay marriages in the states that don’t allow it, especially California. It might change some minds!

    Congratulations to both of you!

  3. Congratulations on the launch of this exquisite new site! I remember so well the trepidation you had when given that HW assignment that led to this beautiful union. A reminder to us all to stretch when it scares us most…who knows what can happen!

  4. LOVED the video you posted for your launch. Even though
    I didn’t know you then, I feel like I was a guest at your wedding.
    Well done!! Your page is outstanding…embodies beauty, elegance
    and easy navigability. WOWZER!!

  5. I am so deeply happy to have found you and in this way. The LGBTQAI movement is just beginning in many countries and the shiniest gateways are appearing because it is pure and just. This website is a radiant light at the intersection of EQUALITY and LIBERATION. Congratulations on your launch.

  6. Wow! Two beautiful women who clearly love each other. With friends and family who support and celebrate your union. So many questions. So much respect. You have done an amazing job with this site. I am beyond impressed.

  7. Oh what beauty is entered here.
    This site is as full of promise, this message, this pathway lined with rose petals- holds so much for the future of marriage.
    I will watch this video over and over again.
    And be inspired, knowing those hands, those eyes and the deep love that is there.
    Congratulations. I am kvelling. Suzi

  8. :'( This was so beautiful… I can not wait to get my big day back on track.

    Wow~ sooooo Beautiful! Thank you for posting and giving us all something to look forward too. My partner and I just got engaged … the date 7-5-13…. we are in Orange County , CA still waiting for our legal rights.

  11. Linda and Miake,
    I want to say thank you so much for the video on youtube and for this page. I am closeted and wanting to start coming out to my family, but scared to death that they will disown me and all. I fear that I won’t get to see my two nephews anymore and they mean the world to me! As i plan on coming out to my family I just want support from them.

    I know one day I will have LOVE and i can’t wait for that day to come, but I have to get out of my comfort zone and come out to my family and friends. Well i did tell my best friend and she wants nothing to do with me anymore so that didnt go as i hoped but i know i can’t change her mind.

    welll thanks again for posting and giving me hope.


  12. You memories are so wonderfully captured for all the world to see and enjoy.
    Society has come a long way in defining the bounds of a love relationship.
    I am concerned that the Church will not be will to be that open because
    the notion still is that Mrs./Mrs. pairing are unnatural. Still I will hold my ground
    and wish you both all the best in your chosen life.

      1. I would have loved to have kissed the bride, But in this case could I have had a double treat. You both are so beautiful and so happy that you both also inspire many. If you will allow be — love and continued best wishes. I will answer any and all of your replies — for sure!!!

  13. Absolutely mesmerizing, radient a beautiful showing of LOVE and connection.

    I just got a face book message from a friend of mine to watch this ad YES! I am reposting it with all my Love and many many hugs
