June Lake Winter Wedding
It was the last wedding before masks became fashionable. Finished the wonder couple (and now friends) Kari and Justin's wedding book a few days ago and I was astonished by how much the Coronavirus has affected our world. So weird and somehow comforting to see the lack of social distancing and fearless hugs. Some day soon—and sooner the better—we'll be back to our old selves, hopefully better humans as a result of this hardship.
Anyway, Kari and Justin's wedding will go down as one of my favorites. We met a couple of days before the wedding after long and literary email exchanges—enough so that I felt I knew them well already. We squeezed in an engagement session at Mammoth Lakes, Convict Lake, and ended up at Hot Creek for a sunset. Kari had made an amazing dress herself that really needed snow to shine with its "the cold doesn't bother me anyway" theme, so we were all hoping for a storm in what had already been a lackluster winter. As luck would have it, it began to flurry just about when AlpenGlow Bridal (Nicki) was putting the final touches on Kari's hair.
Ceremony had to be moved to June Lake Beach at the last minute, which turned out to be a splendid change of plans. Catch the little PhotoFilm at the end to see how a thoughtful minister ducks out of the way for the grand finale. Wish every man and woman of the cloth would have this kind of foresight. Afterwards, everyone repaired to the June Lake Community Center. I've done a few receptions at this venue and it works out really well for friends and family to comingle and have a good time, though the dance floor leaves a lot to be desired. Which was perfect because the whole party just moved up the street to the T-Bar Social Club where everyone danced until the whole town of June Lake warmed up a few degrees.
