Pebble Beach Wedding Photographer | Monterey Peninsula Country Club Wedding | Betsy & Mark
X X X
Our first wedding of the new year was at the gorgeous Monterey Peninsula Country Club, a Pebble Beach wedding venue we have been wanting to shoot for years! It’s considered the finest meeting of land and sea, it’s most famous for it’s two top ranked golf courses set on 400 acres of forest, dunes and two and a half miles of coastal landscape. Combine this venue with an absolute dream couple, this made for one breathtaking wedding!
You may remember Betsy and Mark from their adorable lifestyle engagement session we captured last year. Between Betsy’s love as a pastry chef, and Mark’s astonishing athleticism (who just happens to be a pro soccer player for the San Jose Earthquakes!), together these two just light up a room. The only thing trying to put a damper on this day was the weather! California has been in a severe drought for nearly 10 years, so we’re not used to this wet stuff that falls from the sky. Boy did we pray the that the massive dark clouds circling us wouldn’t unleash their furry until portraits were over. We couldn’t believe it, but the storm listened! The moment we walked the couple into the reception, the rain began to pour harder than we had ever seen. Talk about perfect timing!
Betsy and her mom Teresa (who we just love to pieces!), planned their day so perfectly. From the bridal details to the confetti grand exit, it was all so stunning! La Bella Weddings attention to detail, Reina’s amazing florals, the late night doughnut bar, and Teresa choosing the getting ready house for it’s photo opportunities…. so much was put into their wedding day to make it unbelievably unique and special! Together this was a dream vendor team! It was such an honor to be the ones capturing their wedding day, and Monterey Peninsula Country Club did not disappoint. Congratulations Betsy and Mark!
