Week 20 of my 52 NEW Things project takes me north to Carlsbad and South Ponto State Beach. A group of of about 30 friends and family gathered on this beautiful Saturday afternoon to officially usher in summer here in San Diego, and more importantly, to belatedly celebrate my friends Erin and Kevin's wedding nuptials. They were married last October on the beach in Coronado (I was the videographer and our friend Oliver was the photog), but it was a private ceremony with only the couple and the officiant present.

Today, friends and family gathered from states far and wide to toast them with tacos, CUPCAKES, beach games for the kids, and great conversation. The group included a number of our friends from the WDS San Diego crew, whom we've gotten to know quite well in the past two years and I'm always happy to see. Cheers to a great day and a happy life, Erin and Kevin!
