That’s right friends, we’re back and better than EVER!!! Where have we been you might be asking yourself? Well, Rachel had a baby, we packed two houses and traveled over 2,100 cross country with three adults, two large dogs, a newborn, and now call Charleston, South Carolina home. That’s all.
Oh, do we have stories to tell! Hotel living while the house was being built, Thanksgiving turned Friendsgiving, then Christmas, all while trying to move into our new home, we decided for our sanity’s sake to keep low key until the New Year. January is finally here and we’re SO ready to share with everyone what we’ve been up to!
Our end of the year California weddings we’re just to die for and we cannot wait to share them! Prepare yourselves, we have month’s worth of content coming your way!
Today we’re kick starting our hiatus with Kelly and Christopher’s beautiful Carmel Mission wedding. You may remember them from their GORGEOUS Big Sur engagement session. It was small, intimate, full of gorgeous details, and an infinite amount of portrait time. From the breathtaking grounds of La Playa Carmel where they got ready, we captured their first look which was pure magic. Carmel Mission never disappoints. The light, textures, and the history is far beyond what the mind can imagine. What a perfect way to end the evening with a drive around the Pacific Grove coastline in a vintage Rolls Royce, with husband and wife portraits as the sun was setting. Congratulation Christopher and Kelly!
Many thanks to this amazing creative team who brought this wedding together…
