Wendy and Keith elope on the California Coast

Keith and Wendy came all the way from Cambridgeshire, England to elope on the California coast in September.  I love the way they incorporated their honeymoon trip right into their wedding and made the entire thing an adventure.

"We had planned to go to California for a holiday and decided it would be a great place to get married. Living in the UK, you can't rely on the British weather, even in the summer!"

They wanted to have a totally stress-free experience, so we handled everything for them--officiant, photography, hair and makeup for Wendy and flowers. They also wanted to stay at or close to their wedding venue, so I pointed them in the direction of the spectacular Tickle Pink Inn. They booked the Senator's Cottage and opted to have their wedding right on the grounds.

Our hair and makeup stylist arrived earlier in the day to beautify the bride and then all Wendy and Keith had to do was walk outside the door of their cottage to say "I do."

Wendy described her wedding day as being "very special to us, no fuss but beautiful and romantic. A fabulous view of the Pacific ocean was wonderful too."

After the ceremony, Keith, Wendy and our photographer headed down to the nearby beach for more photos.

Wendy's bouquet was a blend of pale peach and soft pink roses.

What was the best thing about having an intimate wedding?

For Wendy, it was "just having ourselves to please and no one else! And now my dream of getting married abroad has become a wonderful reality."

Yea! Thanks so much for sharing your wedding day with us, Wendy & Keith!

"Maureen and everyone at Blue Sky made my dream of getting married abroad in a sunny stunning location a wonderful reality and fortunately my fiancé Keith was happy to get married abroad too. Living in the UK we can't rely on the British weather so sunny Carmel was perfect. A big thank you to Maureen & Ashley at Blue Sky and also to our officiant, hair stylist, florist and photographer. Also, I must mention the Tickle Pink Inn, recommended by Blue Sky, what a wonderful place to get married. Blue Sky was super efficient and all the details were provided in a timely and professional manner;our wedding day was wonderful."
