I am so excited that I finally get to share this absolutely gorgeous wedding with you all! It was recently featured on Exquisite Magazine’s Blog Here so be sure to check out some of the detail photos featured over there that I didn’t include on this post! The ceremony took place at the Carmel Mission Basilica, and reception was at Holman Ranch in Carmel which is a breathtaking venue!
Vanessa and Jimmy were one of my favorite couples not only of 2013, but of all time. They are both incredibly sweet and hilarious, and we spent a few wonderful days with them last year; Thankfully they are up here in the bay area and we will get to see them, specifically in just a few weeks for a family session at their family ranch! (SO excited!) We bonded over the planning process (we were planning our weddings at the same time!) and had a ton in common (Silas’ family are Stanford alums and Jimmy’s family are die-hard Stanford… just one example among many other things!). Initially we were introduced to them through my friend, Jamie Rose, from my sorority in college (Jimmy is Jamie’s younger brother) and they have absolutely become clients turned friends. V+J, I am so glad we have stayed connected to you two, and can see your marriage and family grow!
Before the photos, I also have to give a shout-out to the A-MAZING vendors from this wedding, some of the BEST in the industry, and absolutely the best in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Heidi from Coastside Couture was unbelievably wonderful; their florist Christine of Christine Cater and Events did a PHENOMENAL job with the arrangements, bouquets, etc.; and we just loved working with Andy from Blue Moon Productions who made THIS sweet video for their wedding. And, Silas and I want to be friends with Michi from Michi Sushi who did their tuna ceremony; This was a first for us, and we are totally hooked!!!
