Although we didn’t meet Kristina and Ian until their wedding weekend, we immediately felt like family. The weekend started at Gerstle Cove Campground with a friendly competition of games between the two families and their friends, an impressive amount of paella and led to many tender moments and big laughs. The Sea Ranch Lodge was the perfect backdrop for their wedding weekend, a place that has been meaningful to Kristina’s family for years. It was along the Mendocino coast that Kristina and her father first went diving for abalone, and they continued this tradition with Ian and their friends during the week leading up to the wedding. Before we headed home the day after their wedding, we were invited to join them for one last dive. We were sad to see Kristina and Ian head home to Chile, but know we will see them soon again. Thank you for inviting us to be part of an amazing weekend.
