Erin + Paul Wedding at Abbotts Lagoon, Point Reyes, CA

     Last Friday I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of my sister, Erin, and her husband, Paul. The ceremony was held at Abbotts Lagoon inside of Point Reyes National Seashore in Northern California.
     The night before the wedding, Erin and Paul held a party with friends and family at their home in Oakland. The meeting of Erin's family from Kansas, Paul's mother, Leah, from Massachusetts, and several of their California friends was a real treat for everyone involved.
     Below are a few images from the ceremony.

Erin stands on a bridge overlooking part of Abbotts Lagoon.
Paul and his mother, Leah, walk towards the location of the ceremony. After parking our vehicles, everyone walked a one mile trail that led to site of the wedding.

Erin writes "LOVE" on a rock with water near the end of the ceremony. Each person wrote a word on a rock with water and stacked them upon each other creating a cairn. The water eventually dries, leaving a sense of the word being a part of the rock forever.
