Chile, Burning Man, and coastlines merge at this multicultural anniversary photo shoot

A rustic Northern California wedding with Southern flair (and a spectacular gray dress!)

With two very nontraditional people, we decided to highlight aspects of our specific tastes and lives.

Vegan, gluten-free Southern cuisine was served along with local Northern California wines and beers.
