I’m so delighted to have been chosen to photograph Whitney and Chris’ Monterey Peninsula Country Club or MPCC intimate wedding! This special was truly one for the books with all the ultra-luxurious details plus getting to work with Heidi, the amazing woman behind Coastside Couture. Read on to hear all about it!

Getting Ready At La Playa

We started the day getting ready at La Playa! I could feel the excitement and butterflies with how long Whitney and Chris have been planning their MPCC intimate wedding with Heidi. The three of them had been working together for a year to make their special day a reality but alas, COVID has other plans. Now that we’ve arrived, everything feels full circle. I’m so honored to have squeaked in and played the part of their MPCC wedding photographer!

Married At The Mission In Carmel

The Mission in Carmel is such a magical venue with lots of history and beautiful Spanish architecture. I love its old-world charm! This is definitely a location where you’ll want a seasoned Carmel photographer (like yours truly!) on your team since the lack of lighting can throw photos for a loop. Whitney and Chris’ MPCC intimate wedding ceremony here was short and sweet. Not to mention Fionna Floral never disappoints with their beautiful arrangements! Afterward, we switched locations to the Monterey Peninsula Country Club!

All The Pretty MPCC Intimate Wedding Day Details

The Monterey Peninsula Country Club in beautiful Pebble Beach is one of my favorite places to photograph and DEFINITELY one I want to keep capturing love stories at. Naturally, the venue has stellar golf grounds and of course, a luxe vibe that elevates any and every occasion. As a Pebble wedding photographer, I can’t get enough of this place! Needless to say, I was ecstatic to capture Whitney and Chris’ MPCC intimate wedding dinner reception here.

Whitney and Chris were dressed to the absolute nines! Chris wore this beautiful black tailored tuxedo that was so classy and perfect for the occasion. Then Whitney wore this gorgeous feather and gemstone dress by Andrew GN that was so unique and stunning! Andrew GN as a brand is truly a cultural fashion icon with its presence at the Red Carpet on celebrities like Reese Witherspoon and even South Korean idol groups! Whitney’s Alexandre Vauthiere shoes were another stunning detail of the MPCC intimate wedding day. Pair all these striking individual features with a couple like Whitney and Chris- LOVE!

MPCC Intimate Wedding Portraits

One of my favorite things about Whitney and Chris is that they’re all smiles when they’re with each other! Every minute of our time together was full of love and bright, ear-to-ear grins. Add in the warm weather, a little breeze, and a cloudless sky, you can’t get any better than that!
