Elizabeth and Austin’s Big Sur wedding was one of my all time favorites. Nestled in the rocky cliffs of the California coast, Ragged Point Inn is both quaint and majestic. At least half an hour from the nearest town, the incredible views, moody fog and isolation make you feel like you’re in another world. It’s no wonder the couple chose this spot for their wedding weekend. Guests from all over the world joined them here to spend a long weekend. I felt SO lucky to have been able to help Liz and Austin plan the most special party of their lives!
Carmen Lopez Photography brought incredible energy and a huge smile, which showed in how comfortable these two were in front of her camera. She captured their wedding day beautifully. Let’s start at the beginning.
Elwynn and Cass paired the bride and her gals up with the best beauty team. Liz sipped champagne and wore the prettiest robe while she enjoyed ocean views and got her hair and makeup done. We loved the bridesmaids matching eucalyptus jams! The bride’s mother met her outside to help her into her lace Pronovias wedding gown. It’s high slit and sweetheart neckline were breathtaking on Liz. Beach waves with a trendy braid, Grace Loves Lace heels and pearl anklets completed her wedding day look.
Austin wore a suit in THE most epic shade of blue, one it took him quite some time to find but we agree was worth the wait. His crew wore floral ties that were all the best shades of the ocean, with bold blues and sea-foam green. He smiled ear to ear while suiting up, excited to see his bride for the first time on their wedding day.
This Must Be The Place read the couple’s welcome sign, which greeted guests as they made their way to the seaside ceremony space. A regal wooden arbor decorated in white florals, pampas grass, eucalyptus and blue thistle by Plain Jane Posy is where the teary eyed couple would stand and share vows as they became husband and wife. It was sweet, emotional and perfect.
Family and friends enjoyed tasty drinks and ocean views during cocktail hour. Wooded farm tables sat under twinkle lights, each place setting held a sweet thank you card and koozie favor, wrapped up with an indigo bow. From the record player guest book to their cake pop dessert table, each and every detail was a true reflection of these two individually and as a couple.
They danced to Harvest Moon, caught up with loved ones, and closed down the night under a sky full of stars singing Wonderwall alongside the Lucky Devils Band. This day and that place were magic, a cove so intimate and remarkable with its misty air and crashing waves.
Congratulations Liz and Austin, cheers to ocean sunsets, songs that make you feel things, and reunions in Big Sur. Love you both!
