A sweltering and cool wedding in Monte Rio, California

Mike (Guido) and Laurie were married last July on what was the hottest day of the summer. They had their ceremony at the Rio Villa Beach Resort followed by a great reception at the Highland Dell Lodge.

Steve Baxman, the fire chief of the Monte Rio volunteer fire department, stopped traffic for the wedding party to cross the bridge over the Russian River.

It was great to see all these cool city folks partying in our tiny town.
