Sometimes you meet a couple and you instantly connect with them. This is how I felt being around both Adriana + Ro. And soon after I realized, it wasn’t just me, its everyone that feels this instant connection with them. These are two people that are completely present in each and every moment. And if you’re in their presence, you’ll just melt. The ironic thing about it, is for two very present people, they’ve had a 7 year relationship where ambitions and careers have forced a ton of distance between them. And yet, somehow, they made it to this moment, standing on a bluff, making the most important promises they’ll ever make. This ridiculously amazing scenery is Ro’s family home in Gualala, CA, about 3 hours north of San Francisco. The drive alone up to Gualala makes you feel like you’re heading into some sort of magical place. What was so neat about this unique location is that basically you’re on PCH…and to the left is the beach…and to the right is the woods….two completely opposite, yet gorgeous sceneries. The reception took place down the road at the Gualala Arts Center, in the middle of the woods. We had a great 2 days working with Viera Photographics, who drove up from San Francisco. Both families were such a blast to be around. Everyone just exuded happiness, love, laughter…everything you would imagine to complete a destination wedding weekend. Adriana and Ro, I can’t say enough about what a pleasure it has been following these plans and this road with you for the past year. You two truly have with each other what many only dream of. Enjoy the tiny little film summing up so much love and laughter in one magical weekend!
