Yesterday was amazing! Jonathan and Yuki included me in their Point Dume wedding as their officiant, and it was such a happy, laughter-filled event. Yuki had requested a Malibu location that would be on the cliffs, overlooking the ocean, and I suggested Point Dume to them. They checked out the spot, and the wooden platform overlooking the Pacific was perfect for their intimate gathering of close friends and a few family members. They had hoped for a beautiful, sunny day, but Malibu’s weather didn’t exactly cooperate there. However, nothing took away from the joy in Jon’s and Yuki’s faces as they recited their vows and exchanged rings. (Overcast days provide great lighting for photos, anyway!)
Several people passing by along the trail congratulated the couple. I think it’s always nice when strangers are accidentally included in weddings. I overheard one woman comment to her hiking companion, “Isn’t that great! Three weddings in one walk!” Yes, Malibu IS a popular wedding spot!
For me, the icing on the cake came near the end of the ceremony, when the seals down below us started barking, adding nature’s blessing to this wonderful event. Congratulations, Jon and Yuki!
