Chateau Julian – Carmel Valley


After days of rain, the sky opened, and Miranda and Andy were blessed with warm, beautiful weather for their December wedding. Driving up to Bonny Doon, it was another foggy day in Santa Cruz, but as we approached the Beauregard Winery Vineyards, we saw blue. Their ceremony took place among the enchanted redwood grove. The aisle was lined with beautiful white floral arrangements in mason jars, hung by ribbon. Manzanita branches were placed at the front, and drizzled with crystal and hanging tea light votives. After the ceremony we headed over to the vineyard for some photos before decending down the mountain where we would make one stop before hitting the Santa Cruz Boardwalk beach (Main Beach.) I thought for sure the fog was still going to be there, but amazingly it burned off in the later afternoon, and once again we had sun. Not only was the weather beautiful in Santa Cruz, it was an epic sunset. I told John about this mural I had seen at sunset months ago, and how I could not wait to photograph in front of it. We were so happy Miranda and Andy were so willing to make that stop, and boy, was it worth it! I absolutely loved it! Thank you Miranda and Andy for your easy going attitude. It was an honor to be apart of your special day. Congratulations!
