Have you ever been to Launch For Hire for a wedding? It's a pretty special place in Inverness California. If you're a fan of driving up the coast, stopping for oysters, or sitting and basking in the sun Launch For Hire is for you.
Pali and Luke met many moons ago at summer camp. In fact they met a summer camp on the East coast and have such an affinity for California that they came here to be married.
Luke knew exactly what great things the Russian River had to offer, most notably the Russian River Brewing company. He and his groomsmen picked up a case of the famed Pliny the Elder to toast pre-wedding and kick and nerves or jitters.
Pali got ready with her bridesmaids and was adorned head to toe in a beautiful lace dress. Her bouquet was created by Luke's brother who is an interior designer as well as a budding florist. Luke's Suit was a deep navy and his shoes were from the great craftsmen at Allen Edmonds.
The ceremony itself was held on the dock overlooking the water with just a handful of their closest friends and family. Their flower boy was the absolute sweetest as he launched petals in the air and at the guests.
If there was any wedding's dinner I wish I could relive it is this one. The food was just out of this world. The cocktail hour had fresh strawberries, figs, dates, tomatoes, cheeses, breads, and more and more and more. Take a look at the photos to see how scrumptious their food looks.
It was no surprise that there were great games to play at the reception. Boardgames, cards, and even bean bag toss were part of the the post ceremony festivities. These two just love to have fun and what better way to keep joy in life and in marriage.
Congratulations Pali and Luke. I wish you all the best in your lives together.
