We ended our season on a very high note when we traveled to the scenic coastal town of Carmel in California for Tiffany and Nick’s intimate wedding. We met Tiffany at her friend Ashley’s wedding in 2017 that we filmed in Livermore, CA. She was the maid of honor then and we got along with her right away! We were so stoked when she asked if we were available for her and Nick’s wedding this past November!
Tiffany got ready at the wedding venue, The Highlands Inn, overlooking the Pacific Ocean full of Cyprus trees on the shoreline. Kate and Bianca of MUAH Makeup and Hair got the girls ready with beautifully blended eyeshadow and pink lips. On the bed, the bridesmaids threw glitter to make for one of our favorite shots of the year! A local designer, Ericka Engelman Couture, made Tiffany’s one-of-a-kind long sleeve gown with fuller skirt. Nick and his Jersey boys (mostly) got ready at a rental house, Carmel Stonehouse, and put on their all-blue tailored suits. Ian Martin Photography, a local photog, was super awesome to work with all day and knew the venue!
Walking onto the large balcony where the ceremony took place was breathtaking. Patty Speirs of Every Last Detail Wedding & Event Coordination did a fantastic job coordinating and planning the day within a minute so everything was perfectly planned with the sunset. CC Creations and Floral Design created floral pieces for the ceremony deck as well as a cascading bouquet for Tiffany, bouquets for the bridesmaids, and boutonnieres. A live musician, Mark Banks of Kelly Productions, played guitar and sang as guests arrived in golden light and took their seats for the ceremony. He also sang “I Can’t Help Falling in Love” for their processional into the ceremony. The bride’s dad, Mike, officiated and did a truly fantastic job articulating their love and all of the love their friends and family have for them. Tiffany and Nick wrote their own vows which were nothing short of unique. Nick even listed off things that are boring to do with one person but awesome to do with two. Like cooking and putting a sheet on a bed, to name a few.
Cocktail hour took place on the same deck overlooking the ocean with drinks and passed hors d’oeuvres. It was truly a magical space as the sun set with Tiffany and Nick’s closest family and friends surrounding them. Marc Banks also played and sang “Lucky” by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillet for the couples first dance which was on the same outdoor stage as the ceremony. All around the ceremony and reception space, there were handmade signs by Heart Paper Soul Wedding, who also created the beautiful invitations! The party moved upstairs into the Surf Room with a wall of windows overlooking the ocean. Chic Event Party Rentals provided the tables and chairs for the evening which completed the reception space.
CJ from Wedding Tech DJ's and Lighting put on one insane party, mixing together DeadMau5 tracks (the groom’s favorite) with more popular songs with an impressive outcome. They also set up the DJ lighting which added to the atmosphere of the party. Celebratory cigars were smoked on the patio with a view of the cyprus trees and ocean. It was a truly magical evening and rocking party for two incredible people.
