Turtle Pond offers excellent views of the Belvedere Castle Plaza. Not often enough do couples opt to get married in this great Central Park wedding ceremony space. To A+I, the pond offers special meaning. Its namesake is not a misnomer. Turtles do find homes here.

Last summer, I. proposed at a little wildlife park near the couple’s home. Right before the moment an escaped turtle ran across the grass in front of them.. A keeper was chasing the turtle. Both cherish the link between two sweet, memorable memories. Indeed, recalling tangible details help enhance our memories. And holding onto meaning creates lovely continuity in life. To honor the turtle’s timing and their mutual love, A + I exchanged turtle broaches.

I and A also requested the inclusion of a thoughtful poem entitled “Habitation” by Margaret Atwood: “Marriage is not a house or even a tent….it is before that, and colder: the edge of the forest, the edge of the desert….. the unpainted stairs at the back where we squat outside, eating popcorn….the edge of the receding glacier where painfully and with wonder at having survived even this far we are learning to make fire”
