Mermaids and the Smell of the Sea - The Magic Onions

Mermaids and the Smell of the Sea

We had the great honor of watching two beautiful souls join their lives together on the pier over the ocean at Hermosa Beach, CA.

It was a magnificently wild day, with grey clouds, silver seas and rain that pelted down upon us as the ceremony drew to a close.

We regarded this opening of the heavens as tremendously auspicious, as if God were joining us to celebrate.

The little flower girls were princess mermaids with sparkly crowns and big wondrous eyes.

And the wedding shoes… I do love wedding shoes! Even the groomsmen paid attention to their shoes in true Californian style… flip flops.



There’s nothing quite to remind you of your own wedding vows like witnessing two lovers promising theirs. My Good Man and I held hands and smiled and thought how lucky we are to have each other.

Blessings and magic,
