Intimate Gay Wedding at Spooner’s Cove on a Rainy Day

Pastel Roses for a Intimate Gay Wedding at Spooner's Cove in Montana de Oro

The rain stopped just in time for Melody + Charlotte’s beachfront ceremony along a gorgeous cove in Montana de Oro State Park!  This lovely, intimate gay wedding in Los Osos, California, was so sweet and simple.  Friends and family were shoulder to shoulder gathered under a 10′ x 10′ white pop up tent, since rain was the forecast.  Miraculously it stopped at the ceremony’s start time, and Melody, Charlotte and their two children walked across the width of the beach dry!

Their minister was a long time friend who added such warmth and connection to the day.  Her stories, along with Melody + Charlotte’s original wedding vows made everyone shed tears and laugh deeply.  It was all so beautiful. I love intimate gay weddings because you feel the deep connection and love and respect for everyone!

The reception was at the lovely Buona Tavola in San Luis Opispo where they took over the back patio area under the twinkling lights.

I’m so grateful to have met these two amazing women, with whom I hope to continue a friendship with!  Melody writes and shares ideas for gay wedding planing on her blog www.centralcoastgayweddings.com so check it out!
