Weddings in Yosemite Article in OC Bride Magazine

Thank you again Orange County Bride Magazine for another published written article and for a 2-page spread of beautiful Yosemite at the historic Ahwahnee Hotel. The historic Ahwahnee hosts intimate weddings and honeymoons for happy couples. Orange County Bride sent me to this majestic hotel to experience the breathtaking landscape and a wedding backdrop that only exists in movies. The Ahwahnee is an absolutely gorgeous hotel boasting over-sized dinging rooms, and perfect for a small ceremony with a waterfall cascading behind you on the ceremony lawn. Below is a link to the previous blog I wrote on this fantastic hotel and landscape with amazing pictures. Having your wedding at the Ahwahnee would result in the most amazing romantic images and any photographer would be excited to shoot there. My husband and I spent two days in Yosemite and experienced a perfect Spring day followed by the valley being canopied by snow. It was truly an amazingly beautiful experience and I was able to capture some of my personal favorite images of all times.

Congrats to My Daddy, Mayor Jim Dow

I have never blogged about my father and since he was passed the gavel last night as his 3rd and last term as Mayor of Buena Park, I found it befitting. Twelve years ago, my Dad and our family went on a bit of a quest to help our city in which the "Dow" family has lived in for 4 generations. We had a steep hill to climb as my father ran against 2 incumbents, and in the history of Buena Park nobody had ever won against an incumbent. For months we worked our hearts out and my Dad won by only 152 votes. We were ecstatic! Since then he has served twice as Mayor, and I am very proud to say that is is my fathers 3rd and final term as Mayor. Despite my father not having come from money, nor does he have a college degree, coupled with very serious health problems, he really has made his late parents proud. I am so proud of the legacy my Father has left his kids and grand kids. I love you Daddy!

My Daddy, Mayor Jim Dow
