Love in La Selva Beach

September 1, 2009

Oh how I love La Selva Beach, California.  Just a hop, skip and a jump from Santa Cruz yet feels so far away from the hustle and bustle.  La Selva Beach is a place that seems untouched by time where 1960’s style homes stand proud and the surf motto is “old guys rule”.  Melinda and Chris exchanged marriage vows on the sandy shores of this very special place.  I was so happy to finish my summer 2009 wedding season here in La Selva with this beautiful couple. Chris’ parents have a lovely home just a rocks throw from the beach which made it very convenient to have the reception in their backyard.  The evening was flawless.  Guests dined under white lanterns while listening to a fabulous local band.  Party favors lined the front entrance of the home…personalized flip flops for everyone.  Although our time for couple pictures was limited, thankfully we were able to get some fabulous sunset pictures.  Melinda is stunning and her golden hair was a perfect compliment to the sunlit pictures.  Since Melinda took the bar exam only weeks ago, she and Chris are well deserving of their Hawaiian honeymoon.  Melinda, Chris and Haley are now a family and I am so happy for all of you!  Congratulations!
