From Nicole Lapierre Photography:
"This beautiful couple eloped in Nova Scotia, Canada at sunrise late last fall. It was a chilly misty morning, and the ceremony took place in the presence of only 8 family members, at the lake where they shared their first kiss. They shared a first look in a steamy farmer's field, and then walked through a rocky forest of greenery and waterfalls for their photos following the ceremony. She is a fellow photographer, Danique Rowsell.
The groom is in the mining industry, and loved the idea of a non traditional stone, so he proposed with a beautiful Sunstone, which is a member of the Feldspar family, and is named for its warm shades of gold, orange, reds and browns that sparkle like the sun. It is said that its energy brings all potential life from within the Earth. It is a Stone of Leadership - of personal power, freedom, and expanded consciousness. Reflecting the qualities of light, and brings openness, benevolence and warmth, strength, mental clarity, and the willingness and ability to bestow blessings upon others. Because he is in the mining industry, he isn't able to wear a metal ring himself for safety reasons, so his ring is made of black silicone."
