Intimate Summer Solstice Wedding in Carmel Valley

Since early in their relationship, Cristina and Tim have had a tradition of spending the summer solstice together doing fun things from sunrise to sunset. When the pair got engaged, Tim's sister had just accepted a job that required her to be on stage every Saturday... for a year. Her only consistent day off was Tuesday. 

This year, Cristina and Tim soon realized, the solstice fell on a Tuesday. 

And so it was settled. 

They gathered their parents, siblings, and a few close friends for a hillside ceremony on the day when the sun seems to stand still. When it finally set, they were married, and enjoying an intimate dinner under the stars.
