A beautiful bride, a handsome groom, a roomful of family and friends…and…Monterey. When you put these all together you get a fabulous wedding! Everything worked out perfectly. We were blessed with wonderful sunshine as we walked down Cannery Row to get some amazing shots of the bridal party.
Sarah and I started the day with MaryAnn and her bridesmaids all getting ready at the Monterey Plaza Hotel. It was the perfect setting with a clear view of the Pacific Ocean. The view speaks for itself.
Once everyone was ready, we headed over to San Carlos Church for the ceremony. I found Dante sharing a quiet and special moment with his parents before the big walk down the aisle. Tradition played a major role in the ceremony, enhancing the beauty of the moment.
Afterwards, we went back to the Monterey Plaza Hotel for the reception. Dante and MaryAnn joined their guest during the cocktail hour. Then the bridal party made their entrance into the ballroom with pomp and circumstance!
It was wonderful to see all the traditional dances as Dante, MaryAnn, and their parents started the festivities. In the end, everyone got in on the action. A fun time was had by all!
