Krista reflects on her wedding, including the lead-up to the ceremony and the takeaways from the emotionally charged event
By tying the knot, Krista had to untie herself from the anti-marriage narrative she had lived since childhood. She had to redefine what a sacred union meant to her and Justin as a spiritually-evolved couple.
In this episode, Krista shares how she moved away from tradition to tap into the natural flow of the day; from getting ready alone and adding intentional moments to the ceremony, to allowing herself to sit in the more somber shades of such an emotionally heightened experience.
