Big Sur engagement sessions recently are sure been causing some excitement! It might be that the recent rains have brought flowers back to life that have been dormant for the past decade, that the highway has partially reopened so we now have over twenty miles of coastline to use, or that most people had feared that last years fire had devastated the views, which in fact can’t even be seen from the road. Overall, Big Sur is magical, and one of our most favorite locations to capture proposals, engagements, and elopements!
We met Lynnette and Sergio a few months ago over coffee, and they shared all the details of planning their Santa Cruz mountain golf course wedding. He sat in our living room telling us the story of planning the proposal just a few months prior, while vacationing in Lake Tahoe. Sergio walked Lynnette to a secluded beach they frequent each time they visit, just this time when she turned around, he was down one knee!
Both locals of the area, wanted to keep the mountainous terrain in their engagement session, but add a bit of ocean flare. There’s nothing better that the Big Sur coastline! And to top it off, Lynnette and Sergio emerged from their car in the most adorable nautical outfits! Rachel and I just looked at each other with a big sigh of happiness. Not to mention they brought their 2 month old dalmatian puppy! Oh my goodness, we were in LOVE!
We headed from the cliffs to beach for sunset. Lynnette in a stunning sequin gown, and Sergio in a custom tailored suit. These two know how to speak our love language! They danced and cuddled as the tide began to rise. The sounds of waves crashing, the smell of the salty air, and high above pelicans few over in perfect formation. What a dream! Big Sur engagement sessions will forever be a favorite!!! Lynnette and Sergio, we are SO excited for your upcoming wedding! We’re counting down the days right along with you!
