As sea otters frolicked in the surf and waves crashed on the rocky shoreline, the bride and groom exchanged vows of enduring love before a small gathering of family and friends. The ceremony was followed by an intimate reception in the patio of the Forge in the Forest restaurant in Carmel, Calif. The groom is the son of Solveig Traeger, resident of La Crescenta for many years, and the late Rudolph Traeger.

Every time we play a really physical team, we back down.” Upland defeated La Cañada, 57-37, in the semifinals of the San Gabriel Valley Holiday Classic hosted by Monrovia High.
