Weddings

 The bride stops when she reaches the lily-covered beach altar, the setting sun bathing her wedding dress in a golden hue. The sound of the ocean and the sensation of soft sand beneath her feet help to calm her nervous energy. She looks into the eyes of her betrothed...their Ventura beach wedding couldn't be more perfect. Her breath catches. In only a few short moments she will say those two little words that mean so much.

"I do".
