A bit on the foggy side, but a day still full of love and warm fuzzies. Lauren & Mike traveled from Southern California to get hitched on the beach with their parents present. It was quite lovely even though we could only see the base of the Golden Gate Bridge. The final image was cute, this little older couple was sitting on the bench trying to figure out their camera. They were happy when I offered to take their photo. Instead, I passed it onto the new couple to photograph the old love. With their broken English, they gave a blessing and well wishes to Lauren and Mike.

Anyhow, I wish you all the best on your new life together. You two are so sweet together.
