Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis Presents…

We’ve interviewed governors, senators, famous yoga teachers, best-selling authors and famously successful entrepreneurs. But there’s nothing better than talking with two dear friends, who have devoted themselves to being of benefit to our world (and having fun doing so), and talking about Love.

“Skål!” On behalf of 8.7 million readers, Elephant Journal would like to offer our sincere congrats on the marriage of these two lovebirds Dennis Schoneveld and Rachel Brathen.

Waylon, founder of elephant, attended the wedding of our dear elephriends Rachel & Dennis just outside Stockholm, Sweden, in a castle (of course). The morning before the wedding vows, he sat down with both of them—separately—to see how they were feeling and what they wanted to share with elephant readers.

A video of the happy couple—individual conversations with the bride and groom, separately, the morning before the ceremony, capturing the love (and jitters?).

“My kind of gathering. 180 beautiful & kind friends of @dennisfromsalad and @yoga_girl from all over the world. Castle, bocce, sheep, boathouse, knight’s armor, old library, vast fireplaces, pool table, hundreds of acres of forest—#lejondals #lejondalsslott My home for a few days. #sweden#wholetthewayout”

“Post-dinner lawn games and billiards in a setting that’d almost shame #downtonabbey. Everyone seems to know each other, but I imagine many are like myself—strangers forming a family for there days in honor of Dennis and Rachel. #lejondals #lejondalsslott #wholetthewayout #sweden”

“Elegance can’t just be bought. It’s craftsmanship, and taste, and arranging our world mindfully. And, celebration of our sweet full hearts! #lejondals#billiards #sweden #wedding #wholetthewayout”

“A somewhat cold Summer wedding day, so I lent my jacket to a pal. (I’m a bad person, need the good karma) #gooddeedofthemonth #dennisandrachel #lejondalsslott #sweden”

So cute and inspiring.

She’s so adorable and relatable, even tho her lifestyle and position is so different to most of us. A true inspiring woman

anonymous Jul 11, 2014 10:02pm

Beautiful. I still can not understand how in such intimate moments there is time for interviews. Even honeymoon attention is shared with us. There is really so much love for us. Thank you Dennis for sharing R&D !

Lindsey Block They are too damn cute & sweet.

Rachel Brathen This is beautiful. You are beautiful. Making us cry over here in Greece!

Waylon: Oh yay! Just seeing your comment and so glad you two like it.

You were both so inspiring–Dennis so relaxed in the middle of the storm and so unconditionally in love with you, and you so fiercely yourself and generously inspiring in being open.

All thanks goes to Linus for the camera work, he and Tomas were awesome, and Lindsey for the editing.
