The wedding location was Cowell's Beach in Santa Cruz, on a scenic and sunny day. The family and friends of the couple were waiting at the beach entrance and accompanied Bride A. & Groom M. (and their 8 month old baby boy) across the sand to the site of the ceremony. Bride A. wanted to hold her baby during the ceremony but Groom M. convinced her to let someone else hold him, which was good so she could focus on being the bride. The couple spoke their vows while the lasso was around them, then it was removed for the ring exchange. Rev. Des threw in a greeting and closing blessing in Spanish for the Groom's side and we had a lovely ceremony for the whole family. Felicidades!
