This is the story of Phil + Bonita and their wedding by the sea.
Tears and laughter when they first saw each other, waves crashing below.
Fog and salty sea breeze filled the air as they held each other close.
The tables bursting with fresh greens and a backdrop of flowers tied from the tree where they wed.
White, organic, minimal. Bees busy at work, lavender blooms,
and fields of grapevines stretching out towards the horizon.
Laughter erupting throughout the ceremony as everyone joyously celebrates their love.
And as the sun dropped below the ocean, the sky lit up with electric pinks and blues.
