Take a peek at Laura and Justin's Santa Lucia Preserve wedding we produced last October, currently featured in Martha Stewart Weddings. This is one of our all time favorite destination weddings. Laura and Justin tied the knot in Carmel, California, amongst family and friends who flew in from around the country to witness their big day.
Their ceremony took place in a redwood grove, with a grand piano playing in the background. The seating was a mix of natural wood chairs and brightly painted modern chairs, which designated the seats for the readers in their ceremony. Their good friend Dave Metts led the ceremony, which was full of laughter.
Dinner and dancing followed in an old barn on the property, which was decorated with bold, modern colors and furniture to create a stark contrast against the natural dark woods of the buildings. Jenny Pennywood's custom printed canvas runners created a pop on the tables, while Danielle Rowe's pink hued flowers complemented the tabletop perfectly.
Dancing finished off the night, with DJ Blue spinning for a few hours, encouraging more than a few people to hit the floor and do the worm. Yep, the worm.
