While relaxing at Lucky Llama Coffee in Carpinteria, CA, Larry Nimmer noticed a wedding ceremony starting outside — and immediately recognized the father of the bride: former Vice President Al Gore. Nimmer — a reporter who runs EveryoneHasAStory.org — headed outdoors to capture some footage of the nuptials.
Gore's daughter, Sarah, married real estate agent Patrick Maiani in a low-key ceremony held beneath a historic Torrey Pine tree, the largest in the world. Wearing a lovely boho-inspired gown, the bride stood with her groom inside a heart made of flower petals. The couple enjoyed a lively first dance on the lawn before heading to Crushcakes & Cafe bakery with their guests for a reception.
Nimmer had a slightly embarrassing moment when he asked the former VP for some advice on building a successful marriage, forgetting that Gore and his wife, Tipper, separated several years ago (oops!).
