A sunny elopement with your toes in the sand is always a good idea. Sarah and Janet’s Moonstone Beach elopement had the added benefit of an ocean breeze to punctuate their vows. And to quickly dry the flowing teardrops. An early August low tide provided plenty of room for barefoot beach wandering post ceremony. We even took a little extra time to pop down the road and explore Luffenholtz – another one of my favorite Humboldt beach stops.

“If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don’t hesitate. Give in to it… It could be anything, but very likely you notice it in the instant when love begins. Anyway, that’s often the case. Anyway, whatever it is, don’t be afraid of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb.”
