Sun soaking through the windows in their art-filled Mission District flat.
Sitting on their couch beneath that framed ship at sea,
the same piece of art that used to be above his grandparent’s couch.
Green, tangled plants hanging in every room.
Driving around the city’s colorful streets in their only vehicle, a blue 1974 Ford Econoline van.
Tunes blasting through their portable Marshall speaker.
Drinks at their favorite dive bar.
Martini for her, beer for him.
Swinging over their golden city as the sun sets behind the skyline.
This is Sandra + Scott and their life together in San Francisco.

Love is found in the fog rolling by and the sound of the salty, crashing waves.
It is in the simple red rose that he tucked away in his backpack and in each word of the letter he wrote for her.
Love in each footstep that they step as they hiked along those rocks by the sea.
Love in all of his planning for this beautiful surprise.
He dropped to his knee and, of course, love was there too.
And love was in the joyous cheers from fellow hikers who witnessed these moments from afar.
Love, as she turned around to see him there. In her moments of shock and in her joyous laughter.
Love in her yes.
An engagement tucked away on the coast of Acadia National Park.
This is a story of love. A surprise proposal by the sea.

This is a story of an A-frame wedding in the Redwoods, tucked away at Stones and Flowers in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
The giant shadows of those towering red trees danced across buildings and the ground.
A-frame cabins scattered throughout the property, where the groomsman prepared
and where the guests will stay when their feet are sore from dancing.
The air fresh, the sun crept through, and laughter echoed up to the very tip of the treetops.
Everyone gathered beneath the trees to witness these sacred moments between lovers.
Sharing the feeling of being a part of something bigger with friends and family.
Before sharing their first kiss as mister and misses, they planted a new redwood in honor of their love.
Giant sequoia seedlings as guest favors, big, pastel blooms filling the tabletops.
Candles flickered as the sun set and the stars appeared,
a giant canopy over those majestic trees and the joyous humans dancing below.
Simple, romantic, and natural. Overflowing with fresh air and beauty.
This, a magical wedding tucked away in the redwoods of Santa Cruz.

Tears and laughter when they first saw each other, waves crashing below.

And as the sun dropped below the ocean, the sky lit up with electric pinks and blues.

The beach where he first confessed his love for her.
Salty waves, sandy toes.
Collecting a wildflower bouquet in the green, overgrown hillside.
He carries her through the wild, tall grass.
Standing in the midst of the towering forest.
This, a wild, romantic adventure the day after they wed.

This is the story of Tris + Remi and their vegan, woodland fairy themed wedding.
The tables set with medieval chalices and collected vintage cutlery, candles flickering wildly.
Homemade jam upon every plate. Hand drawn table settings and a wedding seal illustrated by the bride.
Their day inspired by Midsummer nights dream, the secret garden, her favorite fairytale, and art nouveau works.
They aimed for their day to feel cozy + elegant just like their home and life.
One of her best friends sewing last minute details, as all of the girls prepare in a room filled with family heirlooms.
Their first look, on the path between his childhood home and his best friend’s home down the street.
The same path he has taken countless times as a child.
Now, where he embraces his bride in her flowy, vegan gown and her antique German crown.
They exchanged their vows in the backyard of the home he grew up in, overlooking the Napa River.
Boats sailing by, joining the celebration by tooting their horn.
Afterward, everyone gathered in the living room for a great vegan feast.
Tears, cheers, and cakes adorned with edible butterflies.
Romantic, eclectic, whimsical, otherworldly.
And they danced the night away under twinkling lights and then drove away in their vegan love mobile.
