An Intimate Big Sur Wedding for Katrina and Charles

intimate big sur wedding

When Katrina contacted me in December to help her plan their intimate Big Sur wedding, she explained that she and Charles tend toward “taking care of others on a regular basis” so they wanted their special day to be one where they could focus solely on each other.

Being a caregiver and a nurturer myself, I totally understood this. So we set about planning a day that had every detail crafted to allowing these two to focus only on themselves.

They booked the ultra-fabulous Wind & Sea Estate for their lodging so it was a natural that they have the ceremony there as well. We arranged it so they never had to leave the estate on the day of their wedding. Our hair and makeup stylist worked her magic on site; the flowers were delivered to their door and we even arranged for a private caterer to whip up a post-ceremony romantic dinner a deux!

The day dawned a bit windy (that’s ocean weather for ya!)  but sunny and glorious!

Katrina’s bouquet was a stunning blend of white roses with blue accent flowers with shades of gray in the “greenery” to match Charles’ suit.
