We know that California winters are nothing like most of the rest of the country. A cold snap that sends us running for our jackets, scarfs and heated seats might be classified as nothing more than brisk fall day somewhere like Chicago. Melissa and Peter held their ceremony atop the bluffs in Rancho Palos Verdes at the beautiful La Venta Inn. It was December 30th and it was freezing! (At least based on our definition). Melissa and Peter didn't let the cold touch them though as they joined their intercontinental families. Their ceremony overlooked the sparkling Pacific and in the distance we could see the Santa Monica Pier. To see more from their day you can see them on the blog.
