I enjoy all the weddings I shoot. My clients are all great people and all weddings prove to be really fun parties....but...not all weddings are created equal. When you are fortunate enough to be married in Big Sur it just adds a couple extra notches to the amazing factor.
I blame this on the redwoods mainly. Those trees are just plain magic. You know what's kind of funny though? as much as I am obsessed with redwoods...the shots I took of the bride and groom with the magic trees...the trees fade into the background and I am left a prisoner to their faces. They have really good faces to look at.
The ceremony site was at Rancho Rico. The gracious owner had housemade goat cheese out as an appetizer. Yes please.
The reception was at the Big Sur Bakery....which we ate at 2 out of the three nights we were there. No regrets. That place is delicious.
Twig and Twine created the amazing floral arrangements and the bride herself was responsible for most of the other amazing details..the runners, the pinecones, the votives, the menus...including the invites which were printed on wood! You can partake of the brides genius yourself at Pine & Parcel.
We ended up being neighbors with the bride and groom our last night there at Glen Oaks. You can rent little cabins nestled in redwoods next to a stream. Go there. Stay there..and then tell me all about it.
Courtney and Mike THANK YOU for letting me come document your beautiful wedding. I hate to say it, but the whole weekend felt more like a vacation and less like work. Truth be told.
I will be visiting Big Sur again (hopefully there will be more weddings to shoot there!! Fingers crossed!).
