Carmel Valley Weddings

We have been busy over at the Couture House! Finalizing details for our spring weddings, and knee deep in summer and fall wedding planning while inquiries flood in for the last of our 2014 dates and the 2015 season. Well, thankfully we love crazy busy days and wedding planning is what we live for! The last few weekends we have been working on finding venues for many of our clients. We are always asked what our favorite region of the Monterey Bay is. Man is that a hard one! Big Sur with it’s raw, off the grid beauty, Carmel by the Sea like a charming european village, Santa Cruz with it’s relaxed beach feeling , the Santa Cruz mountains with it’s towering redwoods, or is it the farms of Pescadero? See how that can be a hard one? So I always suggest it’s a personal choice, and what speaks to the couple. Carmel Valley is my personal favorite, so I thought I would share some inspiration from that region. Blessed with properties like Holman Ranch, Carmel Valley Ranch, Bernardus Lodge, Quail Lodge, The Santa Lucia Preserve, Tehama along with magical vineyards and private estates Carmel Valley is a dream location year round for outdoor weddings.
