Annaleah + Martin | West Marin Photographer | Point Reyes Elopement

On a Thursday in October, I drove out to Point Reyes to meet Annaleah, Martin, and their immediate families for what would be a beautiful day of music, food, adventure, kids, and love.  When I walked up to the impressive redwood house perched on a hillside in Point Reyes where they were staying, I was greeted by the sounds of singing voices, piano, and guitars.  Kids were running around, there was homegrown food, farm fresh goat milk and eggs, drink, and cheese out on the counter, and the mood was relaxed and welcoming.  Such a refreshing beginning to the day.  The music and merriment continued for some time.  Annaleah’s mother made some final alterations to the wedding dress that she has made by hand, and the ribbon around the bouquet that Annaleah had put together earlier in the day was ironed.  Slowly everyone got dressed and ready and began the small caravan to the Point Reyes Lighthouse.  On the way we passed a coyote eating a lizard, hawks, turkey vultures, ravens, cows grazing in fields, elk and deer all sharing the rolling hills of West Marin.  We arrived at the Lighthouse (which was closed) and found our way to a little area close by which looked out onto the Pacific Ocean.  The sun was visible in the sky and the wind was light.  Two unrelated visitors watched the ceremony from a rock nearby.  Annaleah’s father, ordained by the Dudest Church (among others), led the short, sweet, and nontraditional ceremony.  After 11 years of being together they were married.  It was personal and unique, honoring love, family, and community.  As the fog began to roll in and the wind picked up and the sun dropped low in the sky, we slowly made our way to Point Reyes Station, stopping along the way to enjoy the incredible scenery.  Such a wonderful day.
