Boundless Beauty: Earth Day

This (above) photo of Lynsey and Ben Kelly taken by the amazing Jen Kroll at their summer Cedarwood wedding is a masterpiece. Set among Cedarwood’s old growth trees, it expresses an earthy essence and graceful tribute to the land encompassing our historic estate.

We love the timeless quality permeating the grounds of Historic Cedarwood. Bearing witness to the ceaseless seasons of life, this land has much to share.  Weddings held here are bestowed with boundless beauty and inspired by nature. The country side seems to bridge inner and outer worlds as it contributes to the rhythm of our planet.

The privilege of being caretaker of this property and witnessing the joining of many hearts and lives at our historic estate inspired this poetic tribute to Historic Cedarwood on the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.

A wilderness stirred by centuries of passion
and tamed by the promise of union,
sustains lovers as they abide
serene and splendid mergers,
sowing seeds of limitless promise-
boundlessness born into new life…
Cedarwood…love grows here  

We are intrigued by the next photo, taken with Jen’s vintage camera. She says it’s a technique called TTL or Through the Lens, a process of taking an old camera and rigging it so that you can photograph what you see through the lens with a digital camera. Really cool merger of old and new.  Just like Historic Cedarwood!

Thanks, Jen, for sharing these beautiful visual gifts. Just like the land they are taken on, these images will live on much longer than we can imagine.  

Happy Earth Day! May we all tread softly and celebrate the world we live in!
