Carmel Valley – Holman Ranch – Gorgeous Teal and Yellow

I am so honored to be sharing this next wedding with you. Not only was I lucky enough to be a guest and enjoy this amazing féte, but it was incredible to be part of a celebration of love between my good friends Amy and Jeph. I adore them as a couple – they are so darn cute. They truly know what it means to love all aspects of life.

Amy is a serious details person and in planning their wedding she left nothing, NOTHING out. This wedding is a reflection of them and who they are as a couple, and that in itself was so darn cool. From the paper goods by Julie Kemp to the gorgeous flowers by Lila B. every last detail was perfect and beyond pretty. And you can’t really go wrong with Holman Ranch or Anna Kuperberg for that matter. Her stunning shots brought me right back to that day in May where I danced the night away and celebrated with friends and family. Take a peek!

Carmel Valley – Bernardus Lodge – Pretty Purple Wedding Details

Hello! I wanted to share this gorgeous wedding from another favorite photographer of mine, Nicole Goddard. Wait until you see some of these shots – the cutest couple, Andrea and Sean, and Nicole truly captured their love in the beautiful setting of Carmel Valley Wine Country. This wedding was planned by the fab Christy Daly with Allure Consulting. And florals were by the talented Anne Mendenhall, such gorgeous flowers! Love all the pretty pops of purple and details galore. One of my favorite things at this wedding was all of the special touches the bride and groom planned with Christy – in my opinion the best being the late night cereal bar! The reception venue, Bernardus Lodge, is in my overall top 5 for wine country weddings. The service, food and wine is unreal, all your guests can stay onsite and have this amazing weekend adventure at the spa, tasting wine, or just relaxing. The setting is so romantic with backdrops of the Carmel Valley, lush vineyards and of course who doesn’t love a good game of lawn bocce ball or a night cap by a roaring fire pit. My favorite photo is the very last one – how Sean is looking at Andrea, and that smile on her face – it just kinda makes my heart all happy! Enjoy!
