Nestled in the hilltops of the beautiful Carmel Valley the rustic chic Holman Ranch was the setting for Johnny and Joanne's al fresco wedding celebrations. Johnny and Joanne are such a sweet and beautiful couple, you may remember them from their oyster engagement session at Hog Island Oyster Co. It's been such a wonderful journey capturing their love story as it unfolded and their wedding was the pinnacle of it all.

One of my favorite aspects of destination weddings is that they are typically multi day events surrounding the couple being celebrated in a place they love. They allow the couple to create an experience for their closest family and friends sharing what they love most and spending quality time with everyone involved.
Johnny and Joanne gathered their closest family and friends together in Carmel Valley to enjoy an authentic lobster bake as an ode to Johnny's upbringing in New England. Guests from all over the world shared stories over corn on the cob with lobster crackers in hand. It was the perfect way to kick off their wedding celebrations...

Years ago, when I first began working in Miami as a photo assistant I was introduced to the secluded beach paradise of the The Moorings Village in Islamorada. I spent many days working on it's beautiful beaches and it is always the first place that comes to mind when looking for the idyllic island backdrop. Together in collaboration with The Knot and the art direction of Joy Proctor Design I photographed this engagement editorial for the Special Edition Gay Weddings issue of The Knot. All about carefree romance, the lure of the ocean breeze and the smell of salt water in the air; this shoot reminds me once again of the magic and beauty in Islamorada. See the full editorial here + enjoy the trip to paradise....
