A blustery wedding day!

March 15, 2008, Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay

Patty and Jeff wanted more than anything to be married outside, near the ocean, so when the wedding day dawned stormy and rainy, I hated to think that might not be possible!

Even as I was gathering the wedding party for the 11am ceremony, we were not sure whether we would be able to hold the ceremony on the Miramontes Terrace; the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay staff, led by Tony White, had graciously set up an indoor option, so Patty and Jeff could make a last minute decision.

Thankfully, a short break in the storm made it possible for Patty, Jeff and their guests to be outside for the 30 minute ceremony! Even though the weather that day created challenges, it also provided a majestic backdrop of windswept clouds, a beautiful remnant left by the storm.

Rhee Bevere, one of my favorite photographers, caught the scope and drama of the sky in a masterful way; the ceremony images will provide vivid reminders for Patty and Jeff of their blustery wedding day, and the gift of having it outside!. I encourage you visit Rhee's blog entry of April 2nd, for more wonderful photos from Patty and Jeffrey's wedding day. www.rheebevere.blogspot.com.

Undaunted by the unpredicatbility of the weather, Patty and Jeff's beloved puppy, Yoyo, served masterfully as the ringbearer, with the wedding rings tied to his custom-made tuxedo, the wind blowing through his fluffy ears (you will see Yoyo in the top photo). He enjoyed the attention so much, I think he would be available for hire, should any other couples be looking for an experienced ring bearer!
