In my last post, I shared my magic hour-long portrait session with Megan and Julian. Today I’m sharing their equally magical wedding day at Bixby Waters, a private residence tucked backed in the Big Sur forest.
Originally, they were to be married at the Henry Miller Library, but they had to scramble to find an alternative venue when the bridge closure happened just a few months before their wedding date. It all worked out, thankfully, and their celebration one for the books.
I’ve included more detail shots of the dinner decor and food than I usually do for a blog post because it was all such a huge part of the day. Megan and Jullian are big foodies and it was SO delicious and beautiful.
All in all, it was such a treat to photograph such a beautiful Big Sur wedding. It was definitely a highlight of my whole year!
I am so excited to finally be sharing Megan and Julian’s wedding in Big Sur. Not sure how it happened but they got married in May and all of a sudden it’s almost November! In any case, their celebration was incredible and too epic to share in just one post, so I’m going to break it up into two parts.
For most weddings, I have about 30 minutes to photograph just the bride and groom. It’s definitely doable but, in this case, we worked it out to have an entire hour which was a total dream. We started off in the woods close to their wedding venue, a private residence near the famous Bixby Bridge, and then made our way out to the coast as the sun was going down. In the true sense of the words, it was a magic hour.
If you know me, you know that I love Portland. It was a big part of my childhood and I always feel like I’m in my element when I visit. I try to get up there at least once a year, which is never enough. I made it up over the summer and had so much fun photographing the Devereux family while I was there. We met up at Kelley Point Park, picked wild blackberries and exploring the river’s edge. It was a great afternoon!
