Julian, a historical California landmark near San Diego, was a gold rush town back in the days of the Civil War. While James Madison's apple seedlings which were brought up to the mountains, flourished in the clean crisp air made this town known for its baked apple pies, as in, Julian Apple Pies. Along these winding roads, bespoke a natural scenery of grass and oak, encapsulates a sleepy town of 1500 which also holds a kind of romantic setting you've read in fiction from the likes of Louis L'Amour. And more so evident in a place called Meadow View Inn where Cassandra and Koby held their storybook wedding. Though I would sometimes forget the venue I was in because of the attire and decor. Was I in a story, a dream, or just a fanciful masquerade ball? Did I fall into a book where steampunk, Roaring 20's, and Western were all rolled into one? Nonetheless, I would go back to my photography to capture the fairy tale that was Cassandra and Koby's wedding, enjoying every bit of detail that was to be but a moment in time.
