Ocean View, Cliffside Wedding in Big Sur

Ocean view, Cliffside wedding in Big Sur, CA

Cristina + Ryan’s ocean view, cliffside wedding was amazing on a secluded bluff of California’s Central Coast.  Just south of Ragged Point, guests pulled over to parallel park on Highway One.

Attendees went through a small opening of a fence along Highway 1, and continued walking parallel along the cliff, down to a small ragged point jetting out in the ocean.  Cristina + Ryan, along with their closest friends and relatives, exchanged vows on the rocky cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

The best weather on our Central Coast is in the Fall and Spring, and Cristina + Ryan had perfect weather!!!  November weddings are perfect!

Loved their motorcycle and sidecar, and her custom bride helmet!  They drove to Cambria on Highway One from Big Sur and I followed them smiling the whole way.

{ Alyssa + Adam } Cambria Wedding Photographer for Garden Wedding

Cambria wedding photographer Debbie Markham_Cambria Pines Lodge

Its so amazing to be a Cambria wedding photographer! This quaint small town has the most beautiful venues for outdoor weddings!  Cambria Pines Lodge is a gorgeous location for a destination wedding.  Firstly, it has amazing gardens, paths, redwood trees, a wishing well, wood doors and unusual flora.  No wonder I love being a wedding photographer for Cambria Pines Lodge!

Secondly, Alyssa and Adam had an incredibly fun wedding party and family!  They snapchatted while getting ready, the guys drank some Fireball and girls drank Tequila!  Thirdly, they looked amazing with hair and makeup by Justine McCoy Makeup, dressed in grey suits and mauve dresses. They also had really cool etched champagne flutes with straws.  Lastly, their vendors were awesome!  Music and lighting by DJ Johnny Walker, and decorations by Cover Ups. I felt so much love and fun in the air!  I am so lucky to be a part of these special moments in life as a Cambria Wedding Photographer.

Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding in Spring

Spring Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding

Planning an outdoor Spring wedding can be risky since weather is unpredictable. But that didn’t detour Leann and Matt from booking their Santa Barbara Courthouse wedding!  They had the luck of the Irish (…it looked like Ireland with the large grassy areas), and were blessed with high clouds and peeks of sun, for a perfect mid-day ceremony outside!

The Santa Barbara Courthouse is a lovely venue for a small wedding in late March. Friends and family set up white folding chairs, brought in a few furniture pieces + their own wood trellis + wood stumps to define the isle, and adorned it all with fresh flowers!  After the ceremony, there were endless opportunities for gorgeous wedding portraits around the diverse foliage and six sides of the Courthouse building.

Here’s a link to info on the Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding, and some info on Weddings in Santa Barbara.

I would definitely recommend a Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding!  I’ll be photographing an indoor elopement in June there, so check back and see what that’s like!  And don’t hesitate to send me a message or email me with any questions, I was recently a bride myself and know what it’s like to be in your shoes!
