Carly and Monica have been such a freaking blast to hang out with since day one! It was so amazing getting to photograph their big day at Wave Resort! I was so excited to see familiar names pop up in my inbox when they got engaged and first reached out! We have a bunch of mutual friends being that we grew up in nearby towns, and Monica and I had been Facebook friends for years! Together, these two are a powerhouse team from gourmet dinners most nights out of the week to epic vacations and demo-ing their entire house! These two keep it real always, and they’re just such a fun duo. I was honored to get to know them throughout the process and celebrate their love story from engagement session to their wedding day!
C&M had actually planned a very different wedding day, but I LOVE what they ended up with regardless! They originally had wanted to have a private ceremony, so their day would have been getting ready, portraits, and a fun celebrations with friends and family! Instead, due to COVID-19, they had to make the hard decision to scrap the big party they were planning and opt for an intimate wedding day. And it was exactly that – intimate, romantic, and so meaningful. They chose to have a private ceremony on the beach while friends and family overlooked from the balcony of Wave Resort! Then, they celebrated with a moody, edgy dinner reception with their guests! I love how they adapted based on the circumstance and still found ways to make their day totally their own no matter what!
September 27th was a day full of dreamy perfection from the gorgeous details (wax seals, neon signs, and smoke bombs?! yes please!) to the emotional first look and private ceremony overlooking the ocean. I was so over the moon to be the one to capture the start of their forever (although it truly started maaany years ago)! <3
Can’t get enough of these two?! Come check out their engagement session here!
