The Most Poetic Vows – A Desert Wedding at Ace Hotel in Palm Springs

a girl with a velvet soul once sat in a
tree at night and looked to the Stars tilted her head and wished upon a light.
May I find a friend who sees me, may I find someone who won’t leave me, may I
find a lover who was both wise and kind. You are my peace, you are my energy, you
are the best of the world and you are the best of me. The universe bowed to the girl and said, “You will have the love that you believe you deserve, you will have the light your
heart truly seeks – girl with your velvet soul and your freckled cheeks.
You are my cotton candy sky, you are a soft flickering light at night. You’re a solemn stone,
and you are the voice I have known. So she dreamt of a soft love and she wished for a strong love to match her
velvet soul. She conceived of the man with stars in his eyes a – man with a soul
like the sky, infinite and wise. You are my truth, you are my life, you are my patience, you are a drop of rain, and you are the whole sea. The little girl first had to believe she deserves the love she wants to receive and so she grew and fought
herself until she could see that you and she were meant to be.
You are my muse, you are my spark, and you’re the one who will follow me into the dark. Tonight a woman with a velvet soul will look at a man with stars in his eyes knowing she deserves his love and
knowing she has stayed by his side. With heartbeats that beat alone, but one that beats together – you make me better and we are better together. I have some things to say it’s my best
friend my lover my creative partner and inspiration my confidante my moon and
stars and meaning and breath I want to tell her in front of these who mean the
most to us how I feel and what I swear to Rachele world’s failed to describe how
