Meet Sandy, wedding officiant, planner and consultant: Sandy Playa, a retired Park Ranger, has been officiating weddings on Orcas Island since 1992. She spends her spare time leading kayak tours, managing Spring Bay with her husband Carl, and hiking with her dogs. Her specialty is weaving together tradition and individual beliefs into heartwarming, meaningful wedding ceremonies.
Meet Carl, wedding musician: Carl Burger, a retired Park Ranger, began playing acoustic 6-and 12-string guitar over 40 years ago, developing a special flair for instrumental folk-style fingerpicking. His musical touch is ideally suited for helping to create a friendly, festive atmosphere, and his versatility makes him a quick study for most special musical requests.
