These two hopelessly romantic midwest kids with the same birthday who met with in the dusty desert at Burning Man, got married at the Oz Farm in Point Arena.  This hippie commune turned organic farm is scattered with redwoods, apple orchards, and veggie and flower beds.  The event space barn was recently rebuilt.  It is charming and rustic.  Amber and her entourage of lovely ladies got ready at the domes at the end of a gravel road, across a plywood bridge, up makeshift stairway, and down a path through the woods.  They had a wild San Francisco DJ who rocked the dance party with old school soul 45s.  Truly a magical place and wonderful event.  Can’t wait to go back.  Congrats to Amber and Jack.

Oak, olive, fig trees, and grape vines are scattered around the grand old Victorian house at the Beltane Ranch in Glen Ellen.  The horses know very well that there are carrots to be had and do not shy away from visitors.  This ranch has a lot of character and was a great place to shoot.  It was a fantastic backdrop for Jeni and Nathan’s super fun wedding.

 

 

 

The Pelican Inn is one of those places that is steeped in nostalgic memories.  Many years ago I went on an all day adventure with a friend.  We were on my motorcycle, and did not end up heading home until after dark.  The fog was thick as we rode home from Stinson Beach, and we were unprepared for the cold damp ride.  We stopped at the Pelican Inn and warmed ourselves by the fire, soaking up the smell of good food, burning candles, and wood fire before riding the rest of the way home.  It is no surprise that people feel a connection with this charming place.  Sierra and Michael are just about the sweetest and most good natured people around.  Their wedding day at the Pelican Inn was kissed with joy.
