An intimate sunrise wedding, at the Amphitheater, in Boulder, Colorado…  A miracle: gay marriage is legalized in Colorado three days before the wedding…  The civil union license is trashed, a wedding license (just like anyone else’s) is signed.

We barely need any words to set the sacred space, the morning is glorious, the earth is doing all the work for us…

A new ritual is born:  a blessing of the bulbs.  The community each blesses a bulb, and we create a circle of bulbs around the couple.  Bulbs are planted the following weekend, and every spring, the couple gets present to the blessings, as they watch the crocus and tulips and daffodils emerge.
