From Russia, to San Diego, to Las Vegas, to New York. Dmitry and Yulia loved to travel. In fact, travel was such an important part of their life they decided that the best way for them to get married was for a road trip around the West Coast, stopping in Yosemite to Elope in the mountains. I watched as Yulia frolicked through the long grass, so excited to marry her love.

I went on this adventure with them through the mountains of Yosemite, and then to a sunset ceremony at the Pines Resort in Bass Lake.

Love is love
Love is beyond
Beyond all creation
Beyond all destruction
Beyond all maintenance
Love is love and it is pure
It is unalloyed in common parlance.

See love live love sleep love eat love
Walk love run love and also
Taking birth in love and also
Die in love die for love die of love
Love love love love love love
Love is life and life is for love
Without love there is nothing within and without.

Blessing is love, associating is love
Ethics morality philosophy is love
And love is Yours talking Yours hearing
And Yours smiling Your fighting Yours sitting
Your pastimes and everything and everything
Is love love love love love love love.

Life is the extension of love, My dear
Live life with love and love has no duality
My dear, live a life of love and You are the love
Here there everywhere here there everywhere.
