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.

Intimate Gay Wedding at Spooner’s Cove on a Rainy Day

Pastel Roses for a Intimate Gay Wedding at Spooner's Cove in Montana de Oro

The rain stopped just in time for Melody + Charlotte’s beachfront ceremony along a gorgeous cove in Montana de Oro State Park!  This lovely, intimate gay wedding in Los Osos, California, was so sweet and simple.  Friends and family were shoulder to shoulder gathered under a 10′ x 10′ white pop up tent, since rain was the forecast.  Miraculously it stopped at the ceremony’s start time, and Melody, Charlotte and their two children walked across the width of the beach dry!

Their minister was a long time friend who added such warmth and connection to the day.  Her stories, along with Melody + Charlotte’s original wedding vows made everyone shed tears and laugh deeply.  It was all so beautiful. I love intimate gay weddings because you feel the deep connection and love and respect for everyone!

The reception was at the lovely Buona Tavola in San Luis Opispo where they took over the back patio area under the twinkling lights.

I’m so grateful to have met these two amazing women, with whom I hope to continue a friendship with!  Melody writes and shares ideas for gay wedding planing on her blog www.centralcoastgayweddings.com so check it out!

Sarah and Emily’s beautiful and floral same sex wedding in Pismo Beach California, was so fun and full of love. They are awesome, friendly, adventurous people with an affinity for hiking, exploring and vacationing in Hawaii 🙂 We immediately hit it off at our first meeting over coffee, and I feel so blessed to have received this job. The bridesmaids stunned in blue dresses and both ladies looked so gorgeous in their wedding gowns, under the white floral arc looking over the beach/ocean. Their love is undeniable and portrayed so beautifully through these pictures.  I am so happy for them and wish them nothing but the best in their marriage and life together. So thankful to have been part of their Pismo Beach Wedding!
