Just off the Redwood Highway in Del Norte County is the town of Gasquet, CA. As you make your way down the winding road you’re greeted by the Smith River, boasted as the cleanest river in the United States, and the third cleanest in the entire world. Brett grew up with the river right in her backyard, so it only made sense to marry the love of her life in it.
It was a day so sweet, even the bees wanted to join us.
The reception followed with wood fired pizza and Nutella calzones courtesy of Rosie’s Inferno, plus a pinata made of PBR boxes, and about 20 pies baked by Brett’s mother.
Inevitably, the day ended where it began: Back in the Smith River. If I had access to such crystal clear, serpentine waters, I’d be eager to get my feet back into them, too.
