dana & jimmie’s wedding – carmel valley

Presently residing in New York, Dana & Jimmie chose the charming town of Carmel for their destination wedding. I had the pleasure of meeting them while photographing their engagement session and quickly became a big fan and excited to photograph their upcoming wedding. Check out Dana & Jimmie’s Engagement Session if you have not already seen it and be sure to read the post on how they met… I think their story proves to be hysterically funny.

Santa Catalina’s Chapel was the perfect location to make their nuptials official not only because of it’s historic appeal but because of it’s sentimental value, Dana’s mom had attended boarding school there. The ever talented Allison Weddings added her magical touch to this elegant beach themed wedding held at the well established Tehama Golf Club, founded by Clint Eastwood. I have to say this was one of the best dance parties I’ve ever witnessed. The high energy band, Pop Fiction, skillfully played into the wee hours of the night. Also complete with a sugar coated candy bar and sparkler farewell, Dana & Jimmie’s wedding surely did not miss a beat. Thank you so much for having me cover your wedding. Your friendship and love for one another made my job so easy to photograph… I know a lifetime of lot’s of love and happiness is headed your way. Special thanks also to the following vendors for making this wedding a huge success!!
