Ellen and Joe, Vow Renewal at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

If I were to host my own personal best couple contest, Ellen and Joe would definitely be among the final contenders. I adore them. They are animal-loving, adventure-loving, life-loving, each other-loving people, and I was so thrilled to be part of their 20 year anniversary vow renewal. 

We hung out at Lovers Point for a bit before the festivities began, ran back to the house to take a half-shower (because sand and evening gowns don't feel that comfortable together) and then headed to the Monterey Bay Aquarium where they affirmed their devotion to one another with some of their closest family and friends, and fish.
