Some weddings stand out pretty intensely, and Arielle and Mike’s one of a kind wedding was one of those. There’s a lot of reasons for that too. Both Arielle and Mike are staunchly independent, confident, and radiate joy. They love each other with a fierceness that anyone in their presence can see plainly. A long and intertwined love story brought these two together, kind of like a movie if you ask me. An unexpected electric love and then a parting that they thought would be forever, and then finding the path back together again after both becoming their whole selves separately. They are ethically non-monogamous, which I admittedly had to google. Airelle has written a few articles on it if you want to dig deeper: Swedish Kissing Tradition, Kink-friendly Second Wedding, Polyamory made my marriage better. BOOM!
