Pebble Beach Wedding | Sarah & Chris | Carmel, Ca.

Appropriate for this lovely, breezy, Bay Area summer we're having is Sarah & Chris's gorgeous wedding we shot under the blue skies of Pebble Beach on the cliffs of historic 17-Mile Drive in Carmel.

Sarah & Chris currently live in Washington DC, and chose to have their wedding reception at a very special place close to their hearts - Sarah's families estate, Casa De La Estralla. The only way to describe it is to imagine walking through the home where Frances Mayes lived in "Under the Tuscan Sun."

Casa De La Estralla has been in Sarah's family for three generations. Guests relished in the breathtaking views of the ocean and the golf course in the near distance... Black and white wedding photos of Sarah's grandparents were on display in the dining room and guests were seated at intimate table settings throughout the home. A fountain bubbled in the courtyard under the twinkling lights where guest's laughter filled the rooms of the estate. The day was full of such charming detail, and fragrantly full of lavender, one of Sarah's favorites! The stunning flower bouquets reminded us of fresh picked garden herbs and wildflowers, and the bride looked so blissfully relaxed and happily in the moment all day long.

Sarah & Chris are such a loving couple with a loving family. It was such a delight to work with them and celebrate at such an intimate venue. It was a memorable day for us indeed! We hope you enjoy some of our favorite images...

And one last shout out to the awesome Kevin O'Scanlon with Sound in Motion who kept the tunes rockin all night long!
