Amber and Bryan kicked off their wedding day by getting ready with their bridal party. This gorgeous Monterey bride was surrounded by her bridesmaids as she got ready. Honestly, Amber was glowing and just so excited to marry her best friend. Bryan was getting ready with his groomsmen and had a moment to get ready with his daughter, Aurora.

Monterey Wedding Photographer

Ashley did the sweetest first look with her dad, which always gives me butterflies. Watching Ashley’s father take in the moment was so cute. Following the first look with dad, Ashley joined her bridal party and Bryan to take some portraits! It was so fun watching them all laugh as they took pictures together. Portraits with just Ashley and Bryan were breathtakingly beautiful. As I mentioned before, this property they got married on is perfection! There is nowhere where you can take a bad photo. There was so much greenery and flowers, but my ultimate favorite thing on the property was the cherry blossoms!

I was in love with the fact that Ashley and Bryan’s whole wedding day revolved around their families coming together. More specifically, Bryan’s sweet daughter, Aurora, was at the center of the love. She played the part of flower girl quite perfectly and she just looked adorable in her dress. Aurora also played a big part in the ceremony because both Bryan and Ashley shared vows with her too!! I am pretty sure everyone was just in awe because I sure was.

The rest of Ashley and Bryan’s wedding day was just so fun! There was great food, toasts, dancing, and plenty of games to play. Of course, Aurora was helping Ashley and Bryan cut the cake which was adorable. There was homemade beer, wine, and an amazing taco truck. It was honestly the perfect ending to a perfect wedding day in Monterey!
