They fell in love and went from riding dirt bikes together, to showing up on on that sunny beach to hold hands and make vows.  Jenessa and Tyson brought their two families together on a warm day in October (thanks, California) to witness their union. The waves were crashing, and might have caused some nerves as they got closer and closer to the ceremony spot. However that just added to the day’s charm.  After most of the festivities had been taken care of, we had a quiet walk on the beaches of The Sanctuary Beach Resort and took some beautiful portraits.   And then they partied like champions.

Please enjoy these pretty pictures and know that it took a lot of running around with camera gear in the sand to achieve them.
