What could be more fun than a Mardi Gras styled wedding in Mendocino, marching with a zydeco band through the village and ringing in the New Year? Maybe, having friends from San Francisco’s famed Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence join in the celebration!
“One of the wildest, most self-indulgent nights in the states was the inspiration for our night. We wanted to celebrate our love, and our friends, big time and give us a night to remember the rest of our lives together. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are a San Francisco treasure and icon. Having them attend, and preside at our wedding was a dream come true. Their kindness and love knows no bounds and their support of everyone’s right to self expression is near and dear to my heart.
We loved Randy and Joyce’s style. As soon as we saw their work, no one else would do. When we met for the first time, we learned of their Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) connection and then it clicked! I work in TV news and Graham is always up on current events. No wonder we loved their style! It sets them apart.” Monet and Graham, Mendocino Headlands
