Tesse + Erik at Tehama Golf Club

Erik and Tesse threw a beautiful wedding at the Tehama Golf Club in Carmel Valley last fall.  This “Royal Wedding” themed event was absolutely stunning.  I have known Erik & his family for over 12 years.  I shot his sister Brittany’s beautiful backyard wedding a few years ago (Click here to se Brittany & Larry’s Wedding) & was super excited when Erik contacted me after he and Tesse got engaged:).  It was a race to the finish as I watched the sun set during the ceremony, which created the most beautiful light.  I was determined to get some dramatic sky shots of Tesse & Erik after the sun set.

The combination of these two wonderful families, the stunning venue, this sweet couple, the dramatic details and the cutest flower girls and ring bearers ever – it was a perfect night.  I will never forget when the sun set after his final child got married, Erik’s dad looked at me and said “We did it!”  Thank you to Erik’s family for having me be a part of almost every wedding in their family! AND of course to Tesse & Erik for having me be a part of their wonderful day!

Brittany + Larry in Carmel Valley

Brittany and Larry are the sweetest couple and VERY talented!  Brittany is an amazing speech therapist and used to roll in the Bay Area Derby Girls before moving back to Monterey, Ca.  Larry can make anything!! From his delicious ‘5 And Dime’ beer he made for the wedding to cheeses and wines – if it needs to ferment, Larry can do it!  When they asked me to shoot their wedding at Brittany’s uncle’s stunning house in Carmel Valley I was so happy.  Both their parents did the decorations and made the yummy jams.  Grapes of Wrath did the delicious catering and one of her dearest friends was their coordinator, it was really a do it yourself wedding!  I had so much fun at this event, I even danced a bit and enjoyed a home brewed beer.  Thanks again Britt & Larry for making my job so fun! (This wedding was featured on “And Something Blue”!  See the post – CLICK HERE!)
