Carmel & Monterey Destination Wedding Photography | Kristal & Dan

Gavin and I love to travel, so needless to say… we love destination weddings!! It’s definitely one of the perks of being a photographer: getting to combine work with play!! =)  Every year, at least once or twice, we are get to travel to the Bay Area for a wedding (and then spend a couple days to ourselves enjoying our outdoor “office”).  We recently got to do a destination wedding in Carmel, along the beautiful 17-mile drive.  It was surely breathtaking!!

On 11-12-13, beneath a canopy of trees and with a warm, calm breeze brushing against their faces, Kristal and Dan vowed their lives to each other. They celebrated their love (for each other) surrounded by the warm embrace of only 9 closest family and friends.  And when they kissed as husband and wife, the sound of waves crashing upon the rocks, seemed as though thousands were there cheering them on and sharing their joy!!  And for me, it is truly an amazing feeling… to be able to freeze that moment forever, with just a few frames snapped.  Thank you Kristal and Dan for having us be a part of such a beautiful celebration!!

Don’t forget to check out their amazing video!! =)

After the ceremony, Dan serenaded Kristal.  With each strumming of the guitar, her eyes filled with tears of joy!! I couldn’t help but to tear up myself.  So beautiful!

They hosted their reception dinner at Forge in the Forest.  The room was filled with warmth of the fireplace and love from family.
