Meet Sora

Sora Surya No is a sacred space holder, strategy alchemist, transformative business coach, international retreat leader, inspirational speaker, fire igniter, heart whisperer, and world traveler. All that to say… we knew a day all about marrying her love would have carefully crafted, well though out details! You better believe it did… from symbolic rose petals, to children’s declarations of wishes!


The children threw rose petals on the floor, creating a pathway for my dad to walk me into the circle. Dad, being the stylish man that he is, looking handsome in a black suit, no tie, and cool black sneakers. He took my hand and placed it in Eric’s, who gazed into my eyes with emotions filled with love and joy.

Officiant Mike DeSerio spoke words reminding Sora & Eric about their dedication to each other: 

As kindness begets kindness, so do dedication, compassion, and forgiveness beget the same. Love has been described as a verb, denoting a call to action. Decide today that nothing will come between you and your commitment to your spouse. Practice actively loving each other every single day of your marriage. I hope that you learn to strengthen one another with grace, empathy, praise, and genuine admiration. Also, that you learn to fight fairly, to resolve conflict, and to see the good in each other above your imperfections. Today is a beautiful day, a joyful occasion, and above all, it is blessed opportunity to commit wholeheartedly to the person you have been called to love.
