It's a long way form Missouri to California, but Andrea had her heard set on a Santa Cruz beach wedding. Actually, her first instinct was to be married in Big Sur, but when I showed her the options available in nearby Santa Cruz, she was sold.

"As long as it's above 70 degrees!" she requested.

I don't have much control over the weather (I'm good, but even I have my limits!) But their wedding day in late July dawned balmy and gorgeous.

With just Andrew, David and their gorgeous 11 year old son (I mean...look at that face! And those eyelashes!), they said "I do" with a gorgeous Pacific Ocean backdrop at their feet.

We scheduled their beach wedding for 7:00 PM to take advantage of the soft light offered by the setting sun.
