Yokayo Ranch Wedding | Ukiah California Wedding | Lily and Colin

“Love is as love does. Love is an act of will – namely, both an intention and an action. Will also implies choice. We do not have to love. We choose to love.” – bell hooks

Today I’m going to tell you the story of Lily and Colin’s sunshine filled Ukiah, California wedding at the gorgeous Yokayo Ranch. Lily and Colin have an abundance of magic and joy that passes between them and everyone in their circle. Which is why their ceremony location, a field of tall grass aglow with the afternoon sun, made such poetic and perfect sense for them. The sunlight sparkled and danced on the grass slowly waving in the breeze as everyone made their way through the paths cut in the grass to their chairs. And then, from across the field, first Colin, then Lily made their way to the end of the aisle so that they could walk to the front hand in hand. After the tear and laughter filled ceremony, it was time to celebrate. And what a celebration it was! With heartfelt toasts, and songs, and a cleverly choreographed first dance, Lily and Colin’s wedding was a fantastic expression of who they are and everything that’s most important to them. Congratulations Lily and Colin!
