Meeting Cindy and Eric for the first time was kind of like meeting up with old friends. These two love birds decided to fly up from Southern California to declare their love in a romantic and intimate ceremony including their closest family and friends. I have to admit, I was a bit nervous meeting them for the first time, but after the first five minutes, I was completely at ease thanks to their warmth, love, and laughter.
Getting married at Monterey Sanctuary Resort is a luxury in itself. Who can argue with the sweeping ocean views, warm white sand, and wonderful rooms that look out over the bay? This is one of my favorite venues, not just because I'm a site vendor, but really more because of the type of people who come here to get married. Most of my couples are relaxed, and carefree... pretty much just happy to be there getting married. And how can you not love that??
The best part of being a preferred vendor is that you get to work with the most awesome people, again, and again, and again! When I heard Eric and Cindy selected Paul from Ocean Blue Photography, I was super excited. Why? Because he's totally awesome, and produces pictures like this. I just love the light in this photo! Plus I think it's such a romantic shot; reading the vows.
I LOVED Cindy's vision for Navy Blue, Marigold, and Ivory. The burnt orange and marigold are smashing in how they pop against the navy blue dresses.
Lastly, I have to note this cake...... Yep, that's a cake, not a photo album, (which is what I originally thought when I saw it). This creation was made by the absolute BEST cake designer in the Santa Cruz/Monetery area, Edith Myer. Edith's ability to create anything you can imagine makes me want to get another cake (she also did my wedding), but just because.
Congrats Eric and Cindy. Wishing you your Happily Ever After!!
