Cara & Jason's Brookside Equestrian Center Wedding

As with most of my couples, I consider Cara and Jason to be friends of mine. Cara is vibrant, funny, and everyone loves her (it's true, my dear). Jason is soft spoken, kind, and is a perfect match for Cara. Their wedding was one of the most laid back, relaxed events that I have ever attended. This is due in large part to their amazing wedding planner, Rose. Also, it just suits Cara and Jason's personality - of course their wedding would be fun and genuine because that's who they are as people. The highlight of the day for me was the reception. Yes, all of it. From the funny speeches to the silly dancing, to the surprise post-dancing taco truck and the grand exit, it was something that every guest enjoyed. The Brookside Equestrian Center is a wonderful venue to enjoy the amazing Southern California weather in the fall, under the stars and on the soft grass.

Cara and Jason, I could not be happier for you!

I just have to include this photo - Cara and Jason's wedding marked the 3rd wedding this year that I have photographed where my friend Amanda has been a bridesmaid. PS, are those not the best looking photo-bombers you've ever seen?!

Can you guess the song?

Uh oh...here comes Cara's dad and big brother!

Kira & Jordan's Clement Hotel Wedding | Monterey Wedding Photographer

Where do I start? I love Kira and Jordan. I've known Kira for many years since we were both wee 4th graders. Since then, Kira has grown into a beautiful, vibrant women and I am so, so honored that she chose me as her wedding photographer. Jordan, did you have a say? haha. And Jordan...you probably don't know this, but I think I had a crush on you when I was 10 or 11. Jordan's parents owned a business across the street from the pharmacy where my mom worked for many years. Jordan and his brother would come in with their mom from time to time and my mom would come back to the break room where I hung out after school and announce, "The Rasmussen boys are here" in case I wanted to...I don't know...go and flirt? I was 10. haha. That was a fleeting memory and it took me a while to put two and two together that Jordan was THE Jordan that would come into my mom's pharmacy. Kira and Jordan's wedding was on a truly perfect October day in Monterey, CA at the Clement Hotel. Monterey is a special place to me. I have spent countless hours at Cannery Row, at the aquarium, Fisherman's Warf, Lovers Point, and the bike trails that snake through the area. My dad and stepmom moved to the area when I was a little girl and I have so many beautiful memories. So, needless to say, it was a great pleasure to photograph Kira and Jordan's wedding there. They decided to do a first look so we had time to wander around the area and do photos. Not only are they a beautiful couple but they are fun and genuine...the best kind of subjects.

There is a lot more that I could say but I'll stop here and let the photos tell their story. Congratulations you two!

The guys had some interesting music happening in their room...
