This was my first beach ceremony and I have to say I am a fan. Getting to walk around barefoot while you work is pretty fun! The views are amazing, the weather is so much cooler in July, and come on, have you seen this couple?! Gor-geous!
Holly and Kyle would come clear across the country to get married at the central west coast of California, even though ironically it was the east coast where they met (like literally in the ocean). So, I guess it was only fitting they return to the beach (on the opposite side of course) and say I do!
Location, location, location, ... Monterey California and it's deep blue waters are a huge attraction, but if you head just little further west you hit the peninsula of Pacific Grove which offers white sand beaches and fewer people. Plus there is a very cool beachy conference center called Asilomar. This place is located right off Asilomar State Beach with boardwalks, succulents, and just seconds from dipping your toes into pacific waters. Wedding guests can even stay the night since they also offer hotel lodging with meals in their rustic dining hall. It was the perfect place for a ceremony and reception.
The day was filled with so many special moments beginning with a First Look at our getting ready location, The Portola Hotel and Spa at Monterey Bay. Tucked away on the back patio was a super chic garden patio called Jacs Terrace that gave us a sweet backdrop for a first look and bridal portraits. Don't miss seeing Holly's first look with Kyle's son, Little (Kyle jr). His stylish level goes to an 11 as this little dude could model for Armani and Gucci any day of the week!
Needless to say, I could not be more excited to share this wedding with you today. I hope you enjoy looking back at a magical day filled with a deep love and connection to family. These three, Holly, Big, and Little are now complete. Congratulations Hunt Family!
Thank you to all the wonderful team of vendors, family, and friends who made this day possible.
