Intimate Wedding at Santa Rosa Chapel in Cambria

As this was the second marriage for both Jerry and Darlene, they chose to keep it intimate with immediate family.  Their love and commitment shined brightly with a colorful sand ceremony and a fun-loving spirit.  They smiled and laughed throughout their ceremony and portrait time, and then we bravely headed to Moonstone Beach for a few windy shots :).  I would wish them much happiness but they don’t need it, they are a darling pair.  Congratulations!!!

Moonstone Beach Small Wedding

My goal: photograph the wedding ceremony, portraits and get extra shots having a good time all in 1 hour!  Not possible you say… and I might have agreed before today!  Fast, yet relaxed, and fun were lovebirds John and Kimberly – who’ve been together since before high school!  They’ve known each other since they were 4 years old, and their families have celebrated every major life event together. This intimate, simple ceremony held on Moonstone Beach right out from Shamel Park, was so sweet, loving and fun – I felt like an old friend.  I could easily feel their trust and comfort with each other, no pretenses or facades, just pure contentment. How fortunate to find your best friend so young and mesh so perfectly. What a joy!

What a gorgeous day for a destination garden wedding in Cambria!!  Denise and Tom had a lovely room at Cambria Pines Lodge, where the wedding took place as well, with a nice big window (great light for a wedding photographer) and were so relaxed and fun-spirited as they got ready together.  With an adorable, engaging family and wonderful life-long friends it was a beautiful event. The Cambria Pines Lodge has such amazing garden area for walking and photo ops that it made my day really easy!
