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.

Jenna + Cody’s Red & Black Wedding

Red and Black Wedding_Small Town_Destination_Cambria_CA_Photographer

Jenna + Cody’s red & black wedding took place in the gardens of Robin’s Restaurant.  Her elegant, fitted, long black wedding dress was so unconventional, yet perfect for a December wedding.

Jenna hired Rhonda Johnson from Bridal Hair and Makeup to help her get ready.  Rhonda is such a positive, sweet energy on your wedding day, you just feel relaxed in your chair while she is uses her amazing stylist skills in a natural, elegant fashion.

Jenna + Cody are adorable together, both emulating a natural softness and care towards each other and all family members.  They played a really cute shoe game during the reception, where they held each other’s shoes, and statements like “this is the messier person in the relationship” were read.  whoever thought it most applied to the other, raised the that shoe!  The toasts made were so loving and funny I felt like I just fell in love with these two families.

I am blessed to live in Cambria, and am so happy to be a wedding photographer here!
