When a puppy brings two people together…
Yes! That is exactly what happened with K and R! These two sweet millennials met on Facebook over 8 years ago. She saw a picture of his new puppy and yes, that was it. She DMed him and soon the rest was history.
Kelsey said their first date they “ate an endless amount of clam chowder and laughed the entire night and we’ve been inseparable ever since”. Ricky proposed at the beautiful Hotel del Coronado in San Diego and even hired a secret photographer to capture it all so their families could see it too.
On their wedding day, they look back and loved “living in the moment and hearing the sounds of the ocean”. The truly had planned so long to get married and decided that a Big Sur Elopement with Weddings in Monterey was perfect!
I asked Kelsey about what she felt was important to share with other couples in planning for her wedding day and she said “…photography was number one important as an aspect from our wedding day…. We did a lot of research. Read review! Also, always hire your photographer for extra time. Spending the money for a quality photographer is soooo worth it”. Insert me, Heidi… blushing here :-).
This intimate wedding was picturesque over the cliffs of Big Sur. After the ceremony we took some portraits along the cliffs of Big Sur and then headed down to the Redwoods at Glen Oaks Big Sur. Travel and Leisure even said that they were “one of the world’s most romantic hotels”. Check them out! We highly recommend them as a place of peace and tranquility.
