Wedding Chapels Beckon: It's Always Wedding Season in Las Vegas
Wedding Goddess Wisdom
Spring is here and love is in the air. Around the country we are spotting more and more beautiful women in white and handsome men in tuxes. Wedding season is upon us!
One of the reasons people love Las Vegas is because is because wedding season is always upon us here! Any day, you can tap into that exciting, tingly let’s-get-hitched urge to merge.
Wedding chapels beckon, and we want to walk in and “just do it.” When in Vegas, so many people in love, (or perhaps who temporarily think they are in love), become inspired to stroll down the aisle and up to a wedding altar to utter the classic affirmation, "I Do."
Las Vegas weddings give us hope. Like all weddings, they bring with them the freshness of Spring’s new beginnings – flowers, colors, new clothes, new excitement and a new sense of opportunity.
Weddings have a way of opening our hearts and uplifting our spirits. There is nothing that has the same place in our hearts as a wedding.
Weddings restore our hope and our belief in Love.
For most of us, love is the most mystifying, complex, powerful, extraordinary, amazing force in the universe. It is also somewhat elusive. Mystics have tried to capture its essence. Poets have attempted to explain it. Lovers through the ages have gotten lost in its sacred presence and its sometimes-terrifying grip. Many people, once they find love, seem to lose it.
The Bride and Groom, however, seem to have captured it … mastered it … achieved it … and nailed it down. They are the ultimate representatives of love – our King and Queen, God and Goddess of love.
On their wedding day, bride and groom seem to transcend earthly concerns. They are so happy it seems impossible – to them and to those who stand in witness of their love – they could ever be anything less. We want so much to believe – to know -- they will always have the ability to always see one another through the eyes of love.
On the wedding day, we are awe of the great promise that stretches before us as we celebrate the potential for great and lasting love. Seeing a bride and groom step up to the altar helps ignite the flame of love that lives within us all.
Weddings help everyone focus on, and remember, love.
