Mari & Justin- Seacliff Beach Wedding Photography

Mari and Justin were joined together on September 20th, with the sound of the surf and in the shadow Cement Ship at Seacliff Beach. Mari sported a look from the 40’s, with a gorgeous hairdo and pearls to complete the look. Justin and his groomsmen were all beach, with Justin displaying a yellow lily to compliment Mari’s white/yellow lily bouquet and the bridesmaid’s yellow dresses. I wish I could have stayed longer to partake in the cake for if it was as tasty as it was beautiful, it would of been a slice of heaven to the tastebuds.

Lorena & John- Seascape Golf Club/ Aptos Beach - Wedding Photography

“Enthusiastic love” – that’s the best descriptor of Lorena and John. He was obviously smitten, and it showed in all their photographs. Lorena displayed the casual elegance (between nervous giggles) of a well-versed model, with the sincere adoration of a bride-to-be. We started at the first tee of the Seascape Golf Club, then ventured to the beach for that Santa Cruz feeling. John was ever the gentleman, carrying her bag and shoes on the beach, and spontaneously kneeling to kiss the hand of his new bride. They were a joy to be around and their affection filled the room whether they were dancing close, or exchanging glances from across the room. The reception had the crowd jumping, ranging from down home country tunes (John’s favorites!) to good old dancing music from the 80’s. The bridesmaids, in particular, had a great time dancing with Lorena and some of the younger attendees. We wish all the best to the newlyweds, and a special thanks for inviting us to join in on the festivities!

My 7th Wedding Anniversary

I can't believe it has been 7 years. I am just as in love as the day I married him. I am a true romantic and so is he. To this day he will still open the car door and help me in (every time!) We still walk hand in hand. We both still tear up when we hear our wedding song. He is always so giving and supportive when I need it and when I don't. I can't imagine a life with out my Eric. He is mine and I am his. I see us getting old and gray and forgetful together. I believe in marriage, it is not always easy, it takes love, patience, and forgiveness, but I truly believe it has its moments of bliss that fill the soul.

Bianca & Tobias - Wedding, Pebble Beach Photography

September 6th, 2008.
Guests from Switzerland, Venezuela and across the globe joined together to witness and bless the betrothal of Bianca and Tobias. After getting ready at the Inn at Spanish Bay, Bianca made the short and winding trip down 17 Mile Drive and arrived at the ceremony in a gleaming white Rolls Royce. She was preceded down the aisle by seven flower girls and two flower babies in a little wooden wagon and 2 ring bearers. At the reception, vodka flowed down a stylized F ice sculpture into sugar-rimmed martini glasses and were quaffed in a room overlooking the magnificent coast of Pebble Beach at the Monterey Bay Country Club. The elegant dining room was aglow with 500 candles, and the wedding party and others donned leis, celebrating the meeting place of the happy couple.
Heidi Hughett & Lia Adams from Coutour Celebrations were the behind the scenes Wedding Planners that made this wonderful day happen.

Erica & Rudy - Carmel Mission & Pebble Beach Wedding-photography

The day began in the splendor of the historic Carmel Mission where Erica and Rudy were wed under the watchful eyes of the Saints. It ended in a different splendor – in a stunning room at the Inn at Spanish Bay. Even more stunning was the bride, in her silk gown with a criss-crossing back. Hector Villalobos, the father of the bride, beamed with pride as he spoke of the couple, the families and the joy of welcoming Rudy to the family as the third of ‘My Three Sons’.
