It was a warm and sun-filled California day which just added to the excitement of Nicholas and Stephanie’s big day. With having a wedding in the Santa Cruz mountains, the chance of rain always lingers in the back of a brides mind. Nerves were relieved though as Stephanie opened the curtains to nothing but beautiful pure blue skies.
We arrived to a room filled with sounds of laughter and joy as Stephanie sat getting her hair and makeup done. This was our first wedding shot at the gorgeous Chaminade Resort & Spa and now we can’t wait to go back! From the amazing view of the entire Monterey Bay, gardens, fountains, and redwood forests, it left us breathless.
Having been together already five and half years, these two knew each other inside and out. The meaning of best friends, don’t do them justice. They are what you call soul mates to the fullest. The wedding was an outpouring of love and commitment, including prayers and promises to always hold God first in their marriage. If you were a guest at Nick and Stephanie’s wedding, blood relative or not, you were considered family.
Best wishes to the both of you and enjoy honeymooning in Hawaii!
