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!

It warms my heart so much to have photographed this lovely gay wedding. Their family and friends were sooooo affectionate towards each other before, during and after the event, The exchange of vows held deeper meaning and funnier anecdotes than most. And the ethereal afternoon fog made me feel warmer and fuzzier than normal. Central Coast weather is always so cozy and stunning, especially on days like these. I loved photographing this LGBT wedding!

My cheeks hurt from smiling the whole time.  Such a beautiful and memorable intimate destination wedding, with incomparable surroundings, great company, and endless amounts of love. So refreshing and heartwarming to see the amount of love shared between these two. Thank you AJ and Raphael for hiring me!

Sarah and Emily’s beautiful and floral same sex wedding in Pismo Beach California, was so fun and full of love. They are awesome, friendly, adventurous people with an affinity for hiking, exploring and vacationing in Hawaii 🙂 We immediately hit it off at our first meeting over coffee, and I feel so blessed to have received this job. The bridesmaids stunned in blue dresses and both ladies looked so gorgeous in their wedding gowns, under the white floral arc looking over the beach/ocean. Their love is undeniable and portrayed so beautifully through these pictures.  I am so happy for them and wish them nothing but the best in their marriage and life together. So thankful to have been part of their Pismo Beach Wedding!
