#happilyeverhinmans#Maine#wedding#bride#groom#enchanting#fairytale#cuttingthecake#cake#candles A special congratulations to these two newly weds!!! This weekend I experienced a fairly tail wedding. The ceremony and reception both took place in a field behind an aged red barn, down the street from Sam's childhood home in Edgecomb Maine. The landscape tumbled down into the Sheepscot River, providing a water front view. The outdoor venue was elegantly lit with both table top and hung lantern candles and strings of white lights. There were multiple beautifully hand lettered black chalk board signs, that both decorated and instructed guests. I wish I had taken more pictures of the handlettering!Guests crowded around and stood in the lower field under the apple trees. I assumed Sam had asked her guests not to take pictures during the ceremony to be fully emergede in the experience. Everyone silenced when the cello musician began to play. We all looked up to watch her father and her walk towards us from over the hill. She was an enchanting, beautiful, bearfooted bride wearing a traditional white gown with a green ivy woodland wreath. Simply put, she looked like a fairy in the forest. The whole time she was crying and laughing as her father gave her away.The reception was a combination of meeting the family, snacks, open bar, dinner, speeches, boogieing down on the dance floor, sparklers/roman candles and gathering around campfires. Thank you for inviting me to celebrate your special day! It was a love filled, enchanting experience, and it was a ton of fun celebrating it with your family!
#germany#berlin#HolocaustMemorial#memorialtothemurderdJewsofEurope#concret#memorial#stele#museum 2,711 concrete slabs arranged in a grid pattern on a sloping field. It was designed by architect Peter Eisenman and engineer Buro Happold to produce an uneasy, confusing atmosphere, and the whole sculpture aims to represent a supposedly ordered system that has lost touch with human reason. To me the space was centering. While walking through the slabs slowly rose above me, creating a childlike sensation. An attached underground museum "Place of Information" was filled with instillations, descriptions, letters and recordings that had me in tears.
