The quaintness of a Carmel wedding gets us every time! Tucked away in a small cottage, with a stone fireplace draped with florals (styled perfectly I might add), a porch with shutters and a view of the Pebble Beach greens stretched as far as the eye could see, was where we found Olivia. Hair and makeup was underway and excitement filled the room! Olivia ran to us with open arms, handing us all the details she had already set aside. Her dress hung in the doorframe of hall, and a cool ocean breeze swept through the house.
The sun was shining and it was the perfect California beach day. We snuck away to the Carmel mission as Mark and Olivia shared their first look, before heading the sandy shores of Carmel where over 100 of their closest family and friends were waiting to watch them exchange vows. As the tide receded, the wind died down, and ocean became smooth as glass. Mark and Olivia kissed to forever with the sand between their toes. It was absolutely perfect!
Congratulations you two! We could not have imagined a more perfect day for a Carmel wedding! Here’s a sneak peek into Mark and Olivia’s first today of forever…
