I had all intentions of Googling Gualala when I first saw this beautiful wedding locale, but I’ll be quite honest, all plans were forgotten as I was sucked into the romance of Hoo Films highlight film. The couple is so sweet I just want to hug them both, and their wedding? Gorgeous.

From Hoo Films… Sometimes you meet a couple and you instantly connect with them. This is how I felt being around both Adriana + Ro. In their presence, you’ll just melt. These are two people that are completely present in each and every moment….especially this moment, standing on a bluff, making the most important promises they’ll ever make. This ridiculously amazing scenery is Ro’s family home in Gualala, CA, about 3 hours north of San Francisco. The drive alone up to Gualala makes you feel like you’re heading into some sort of magical place. What was so neat about this unique location is that basically you’re on PCH…and to the left is the beach…and to the right is the woods….two completely opposite, yet gorgeous sceneries. The reception took place down the road at the Gualala Arts Center, in the middle of the woods. Everyone just exuded happiness, love, laughter…all the emotions you would imagine to complete a destination wedding weekend!
