About a week ago, these two Monterey locals exchanged their vows in front of their family at the exquisite Highlands Inn overlooking the grand Pacific Ocean. They had bigger plans before the pandemic to have a larger wedding – but decided to make alternate plans that ‘fit’ during this time for them. They had just a few family members attend their wedding and help them celebrate. It will be a surprise to some folks that they did indeed get married after all – they wished you could all be there, but they hope to celebrate with you all after the pandemic is gone and everyone can connect safely.
I loved being a part of their little day and it was even more fun as Stela is also in the hospitality industry locally and we know a lot of the same people! Being an event planner, she knew exactly what she wanted for her big day. With that said, they were so kind and laid back on their wedding day – it was like hanging out with friends and I just happened to bring my camera with me 🙂
Wishing these two fabulous friends a lifetime of happiness.
