J & V’s wedding at La Playa Carmel was an absolute DREAM! These love birds woke up thinking that their wedding day was going to be in the 60s and completely foggy, but to their surprise, mother nature had a special gift for them. The skies ended up being completely blue with the sun beaming down, complimented with an ever so slight breeze.
My second shooter and I showed up a little early to get a feel of what we were working with and the moment we stepped into the lobby, we were both instantly blown away by the natural beauty of this hotel. Walking into the court yard, you would just get a big whiff of the florals. The Landscaping was in tip top shape and La Playa Carmel wouldn’t have it any other way.
J&V’s wedding was a micro-wedding (these are totally on trend now) and it was the most perfect day. When having a small wedding, you can really splurge on florals, decor, photography, food, venue, you name it! You can tell this day was a special one for these two – I hope you enjoy the highlights and Congrats to you two, Mr. & Mrs. Vakulenko!
