Kali + Jeremy in Belknap Springs

When we first met them, they were on a fruit cleanse. Jeremy said, “If I don’t get some real food soon, I am going to f*cking stab a vagrant.” It was then, we knew we they were the kind of unfiltered, vibrantly imperfect people for us.

They requested a list of favorites quotes or memories from their weekend, and feel they can share it better than us. Reading through them, it feels like snippets someone might get coming in and out of consciousness throughout the day. Also, here is a clip of music one of their friends played around the campfire, that night, to go along with photo meanderings:


Thanks for Saturday; it was perfectly imperfect.

“THERE’S STILL TIME!!” (Yelled before things were really official.)

Someone asked me what kind of music was at the wedding and I said, “there wasn’t any” and they stared at me like I was a little crazy and I wanted to say,”it wasn’t that kind of wedding.” Two cheers for unconventional ceremonies!!

The sharp laughter of Maxwell, (friend’s baby) stabbing the sky during the ceremony. Such a nice grounding factor during a ceremony; this is about life, building a new one together, blending your individual lives.

Sharing beers with lovely people you didn’t know existed 4 hours prior.

Making friends on the lawn of Grant High School before the weekend even BEGAN and knowing instantly it was going to be an awesome weekend. Every moment from that point forward only got better — including four overheated bus pitstops in an aircondition-less bikram bus.

Seeing Jeremy put his arm around Kali at dinner, a gesture small and huge at the same time.

Erin singing solo in front of the biggest crowd I’ve ever seen him perform for without a MOMENTS HESITATION because he felt so comfortable and awesome around you guys.  Believe you-me, that made my heart go ‘boom’.

Nearly breaking my bladder on the bus ride up was both exhilarating – and a learning experience.  Note to self: when someone offers a porta-potty to you, EVEN if it’s a 10 minute walk away and EVEN if the bus is leaving, YOU WILL TAKE IT.  Because 1 large coffee, a water and 3 beers later you will forget you have a brain and your bladder will become the only throbbing organ you will pay attention to, and this does not make getting to know a bus-full of strangers very productive.

Being told four times that my campfire speech was too inappropriate for public consumption.

Watching two of my favorite people waltz through what’s supposed to be one of the biggest and most stressful weekends of their life with all the grace and composure of two people who are the EMBODIMENT of what it means to be in love — it means nothing can phase you, nothing can rattle you, and you beam and laugh and joke and work and organize with nothing less than pure bliss written all over your faces and THAT’S fucking inspiring.

My favorite part of the wedding almost for sure was watching Kali smile bigger and bigger while watching J start to choke/tear up and smile at the beginning of the ceremony because I could see love and energy bond ever so tightly in front of me. 

Unpacking the stuff for the great room and discovering that the table cloths were sheets and saying “Of course they are. How very Kali.”

A wedding party of blue and green happily traipsing from the great room to the lawn, everyone unfazed by the late start and just happy to be there with the bride and groom.

“All my scars are emotional.” – the bride’s brother.

Somehow ending up in the kitchen post celebration and serving dinner with Kali’s mom, brother, and Lucy.

The evening dip in the hot springs, with the mist hanging thick over the pool, beer in a pretzel jar, volleyball with a beach ball, everyone else vacating the premises within 10 minutes, races, conversations with old friends, and an immense feeling of peace and happiness.
