A June Private Estate Wedding in Carmel

Lauren and Vlad dreamed of a destination wedding in Carmel California, where their family and close friends could spend the weekend celebrating with them. The festivities began with a cliff top dinner complete with a rotisserie chicken food truck and amazing wine. Due to the summer coastal fog, the guests wrapped themselves in colorful blankets that greeted them at their seats. After dinner the fifty plus guests headed down to the beach for bonfires and smore’s . The next day the couple were married at a private estate overlooking The Carmel Coastline. The sun shown for their ceremony and then the party was enveloped in a romantic coastal fog. Their cocktail reception included a wine tasting station and passed tapas.Their family style dinner followed on the stone patio, where their guests sat at two long tables topped with tall urns filled with blooming curly willow and white hydrangea. There were impromptu toasts throughout the dinner adding to the intimate feel of the evening. After dinner the couple danced the night away on the main deck, taking a small break to enjoy their wedding cake that was made by their good friend.
