It's not everyday that I get to meet such a large wonderful family. Frani and John were introduced to each other by their children who thought they might hit it off. Less than a year later, they celebrated their love with a small family church ceremony and reception at the Venice Yacht Club. Frani has four beautiful daughters and John has four handsome sons that made up their wedding party. We decided we'd take the family portraits at the Venice Jetty among the rocks. I was a little worried when I saw the women wearing two inch heels but they didn't hesitate when I asked them to climb around the rocks to find a good spot to stand. I could tell that these children would do anything for their parents. Fortunately no one slipped and we got an amazing photograph of the whole family.
Cocktail hour at the Venice Yacht Club was filled with smiles and love. Families reunited and friends came together. Dinner and dancing upstairs afterwards was the perfect end to a day they will always remember and cherish.
