Rustic + traditional + glamorous is this Carmel wedding a year and a half in the making. It’s both elegant and down to earth, which is a great combo if you ask us. They decided on Carmel Mission Basilica for the ceremony after attending a mass there on vacation—how sweet is it that they can look forward to revisiting it on future vacays?
Thanks to Danielle Poff Photography for the photos below—they (and we!) were blown away by each and every one of ‘em.
Jessica’s Inbal Dror lace and tulle gown had a fitted top with a sheer lace back. Oh, and that train!—it was the longest in the bridal shop.
A pallet seating chart DIY by Chris + his father-in-law. Jessica’s advice: I highly recommend doing at least one DIY, if for no other reason than the fun story and memory after!
Is this real life? Such perfect lighting in their rustic reception venue…
Jessica’s most memorable moment: After we were announced as husband and wife, and had our first kiss we walked down the aisle of the church and Chris stopped to kiss me right there in middle of the aisle. He always sweeps me off my feet!
Cheers you two!
