A Monday wedding with seven people? Sign me up! That sounds like just the thing to brighten up a Monday. Plus, the wedding was held at a beautiful house overlooking the beach in Cambria on a perfectly sunny day, even saw a whale breaching just as I walked into the backyard overlooking the ocean. I could not have ordered up a better wedding day for Pegeen and Philip. Pegeen and Philip described their hopes for the day…small wedding, intimate family dinner, photos on the beach, and a relaxed pace. I had a several “signs” during the day that made me smile and know that things were gonna go smoothly. Philip was playing Paul Simon music during the pre-ceremony and reception (oh how I love Paul Simon!). Pegeen hired one of my favorite on-location hair and make-up artists (Rhonda Johnson). And Pegeen and Philip had Andre and Christine cater their family dinner afterwards. From the happy smiles, effortless conversations, and relaxed mood at dinner…I think everyone was pleased with how the day unfolded. I was grateful that I got to witness it, too.
