James + Kelly's Wedding- Ventana Inn, Big Sur California

September is turning out to be one of my favorite months of the whole year. This was the 2nd September in a row I had the pleasure of shooting a wedding in this glorious location.

What I found particularly magical about Kelly and James's destination wedding is the fact that neither had ever been to Big Sur before their wedding weekend. Based on the advice of friends they choose the location....and just happened to choose one of the most beautiful places in the whole world. It probably doesn't hurt that they both have amazing taste. This decision just confirms that.

Drunk off the beauty of my bride and the redwoods and the infectious laugh and smile of James, I filled up my 4hrs of shooting in what felt like 30mins.

The festivities took place at the gorgeous Ventana Inn, in which Range Rovers drove us from location to location..including the redwood grove which was on site. **dream location**

Thank you for adding me to your intimate gathering. It was a really, really great afternoon.
