On a sunny afternoon in June, Ryan and Karen were married at the Dana Adobe in Nipomo. Karen made all the decorations herself, which were not only beautiful but in keeping with the wild west feel of the location.

It was very much a family occasion. Karen’s stepfather was officiant and her brother walked her down the aisle. Ryan’s four sons were groomsmen and Karen’s daughter was a bridesmaid. They are such a sweet and close-knit family, my face hurt by the end of the evening from smiling all day.
