After almost a year of negligence (time flies when you’re busy, I guess), I’ve decided to resurrect my little blog this year. I thought that I’d start with a beautiful Carmel Valley Wedding from last moth. Hillary and Michael planned such a thoughtful and heartfelt wedding. They elected to have an intimate ceremony with close family members at Bernardus Lodge and a fun-filled celebration with extended family and friends at Georis Winery the following evening. Originally from Santa Fe, Hillary incorporated some inspiration from her hometown into the decor on both days. Thank you, Coastside Couture, both for the referral and for planning such a fantastic two days. You ladies are amazing! And once again, Amanda Seely of Laughin’ Gal Floral went all out with the florals. She blows me away every time. Be sure to check out the end of the post for a complete list of amazing vendors. Hillary and Michael, thank you for having us. Both Pat and I felt honored to be there to document such a meaningful and beautiful time in your lives. We wish you both the very, very best.
