Michael & Yasmine: Married Beneath The Full Moon

Most people probably spent April 16, 2011 stressing over the last-minute details of their 2010 tax returns however Michael and Yasmine chose this date to celebrate their love in an intimate wedding ceremony hosted at a private home in Brentwood, CA.

As the full moon rose in the east, the sun settled into the hills of Brentwood and the Pacific ocean glistened in the distant background the two exchanged vows in a couples-centered, non-religious ceremony that reflected their love for each other and their committment to create a new life together. Among the witnesses were a mother hawk and her hatchlings who watched from their nearby nest.

Afterwords, my husband and I joined the couple and their guests for a fantastic evening of mixing, mingling, great music and delicious food.
