Carmel Tehama Wedding | Maggie & Jarod

Maggie and Jarod’s Carmel Tehama wedding was a long time coming after their Big Sur surprise proposal, which I also had the honor of photographing! The day and night were so alive and full of energy from the bride and groom, and of course, their family and friends. This wedding party was one for the books!

About Maggie & Jarod

“Currently we live in Minneapolis, MN, though Jarod grew up in a small town in western Nebraska called Scottsbluff. Maggie grew up in a suburb called Edina outside of Minneapolis. Both of us moved to Minneapolis after school for work 6 years ago where we literally shared a cube wall for a couple of years as we worked on the same team and secret dated for a little over one and a half years. We decided to take a trip to Chicago one weekend and figured out that we both had feelings for each other and haven’t skipped a beat since!” – Maggie

Maggie and Jarod are a couple that will forever be my friend. After their Carmel Tehama wedding, they honeymooned in Kauai, Hawaii before driving back from California to Minneapolis from 11/17-11/20. Before that, Jarod hired me for their proposal and stayed here for few months during the pandemic to work from here from Minnesota. We’ve had SO much fun while they were here. Who knows? Maybe some day they’ll move to Carmel!

Carmel Wedding At Tehama

You already know that Tehama is one of my most FAVORITE venues, not just in Carmel, but of all time! Tehama weddings have a stunning classiness like no other! There’s nothing like the views from the golf course atop the hills of Carmel. There’s such a tranquility and natural beauty of the land that makes it a surreal venue.

Isn’t Maggie’s ring STUNNING? I love the suspended solitaire and the gold band. Maggie’s aunt and God Mother is a jewelry designer at Susan Crow Studio and Jarod worked with her to get the ring shipped cross country while they were out in California!

What Do You Love Most About Your Partner?

“Mags is extremely thoughtful, she will attempt to make sure everyone feels heard and concerns are taken care of. She is always a few steps ahead of me.” – Jarod

“Jarod is so in tune with my needs/wants/general state of being, often before she even realizes she needs/wants/is worried about something. He’s always helping me work through it! He always catches me by surprise with acts of service like taking things off my giant never-ending to do list.” – Maggie
