As an impending storm system off the Pacific continued to taunt us throughout the day, we made our way down Highway 1 to a small patch of grass just past Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park where we met officiant Ken Robins. Even though the two eloped and the pressure of having to perform in front of a sea of guests was lifted, it was still important for Dan to get it perfect so he still brought along a written copy of his vows, just in case. Goldie and Dan enjoy the outdoors, exploring wild places, and surfing together, so the choice of venue fit them perfectly. We finished our photo-exploratory-tiki-tour at Pfeiffer Beach, just as the weather began to gain the upper hand and we said goodbye to the last of our light. As the rain now began to fall, we warmed up at Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn before saying goodbye to our new friends as we left them to a candlelight dinner, the first of many to come. Thank you Goldie and Dan and congratulations!
