There’s more whales in the Monterey Bay this season than we can remember! Come out to Sand Rock Farm and take an ocean adventure with Sanctuary Cruises.
Every year is different from the year before. No two wedding couples are alike, nor are the weddings, whether large or small. Each is memorable.
Not too long ago we were fortunate to have Joan, (Sand Rock Farm’s second owners, the Waugaman’s), granddaughter, visit. Joan brought pictures with her of her mother and father, Nan and Don Linz’s wedding. It took place over 50 years ago at Sand Rock Farm, August 27, 1957, and is one of the first weddings of which we have pictures.
Much is different, and much stays the same. Bride and Groom still cut the cake and take a bite. But, I can’t remember a formal receiving line at Sand Rock Farm in the past few years.
Each year that we do weddings, Brides, or Mothers of the Brides ask the question, what do we do it rains in Aptos on my wedding day? Depending on the time of the year and the size of the wedding, the answer differs. But, when a June wedding is planned, we might mention “June Gloom”, (a bit of coastal fog), but not ncecessarily talk about a rain plan. That is, until last year. The Heavens opened and rain poured down from early morning till evening, June 4, 2011. Jennie and Chris, their family and friends will long remember that rainy day. We won’t forget the many smiles and happy times guests had partying in the shelter of the tent in the Meadow, or the Bride and Groom under an Umbrella in the Winery.
Though early in the Season, 2012, another special memory was created last week when Melissa and Rob got married. Were a Bride and Groom meant to travel on a tandem bike to their reception?
