A Vintage Trailer & SouWester Lodge Wedding

Let’s talk about vintage trailer parks, flower crowns for the bride and groom and sun drenched strolls on the beach. Wedding cake made of towering cheese wheels, a tearful ceremony and a fire-spinning show for most outrageously fun bunch of people ever. Melinda, Louis and all their friends and family felt like kindred spirits, with a warmth that radiated from their whole community. Super Moon be damned, because there was nothing here but good vibes only. I couldn’t’ve asked for a better way to end a wedding season than by staring up at the Milky Way with these two while Chris made sure our car didn’t sink into the ocean.
