What a way to kick off my official ‘no-real-breaks’ 2011 wedding season! Carol and Matt, who reside in Utah, had a destination wedding in Pismo Beach with a small and intimate group of their closest family and friends. Pismo Beach is a place near and dear to Carol and her family- they spent a lot of time vacationing there as Carol was growing up and even Carol’s parent’s license plate says ‘PSMOBCH’! They rented a beach house owned by and adjacent to the Sea Venture Hotel and opted to have their private ceremony on the sand dunes, keeping things very low key. Afterwards, the guests headed over to Giuseppe’s Italian Restaurant to celebrate the newlyweds with dinner in a private room. Everything went off without a hitch, and I was honored to be their photographer. Check out the GORGEOUSNESS that is Carol and her wedding dress below (one of my fave dresses to date!). Carol and Matt- thank you for your hospitality and easy-going personalities! You certainly made my day fun!
