A Childhood Friend’s Riverside Wedding

MaryBeth and Chris Wedding September 2011

Coloma California American River One of my closest friends since elementary school married her outdoorsman sweetheart. They both love to fish and camp so a river-side outdoor wedding in Coloma, California was perfect. My campsite was right next to the American River and throughout the afternoon we saw half a dozen rafters take on the rapids and succeed. Just looking at the middle fork of the american river made me want to book a whitewater rafting trip there.
