If there is one trend I absolutely love, it’s buying local. Love it with a capital L. So this couple and their local-loving and eco-aware affair at the Cass House Inn had me at hello. From the wine to the food to her wedding gown, everything was sourced right in the pretty backyard of Central California – how can you not love that? Add to of all that lovely the fact the groom just happens to be the voice beyond Temple of the Groom, and top it all off with gorgeous images from Callaway Gable, and folks I think we have a winner!

From Callaway Gable…Their destination wedding took place in Cayucos, CA, about ½ hour from Morro Bay on California’s Central Coast at a beautiful seaside luxury inn called the Cass House. David and Rebecca meticulously planned and/or created every detail themselves, extensively using DIY techniques that matched creativity and chic-ness with affordability. They were also concerned with sustainability and eco-awareness as their menu, wine and wedding dress were locally sourced, and florals were passed over for vintage fabrics and candles.
Food is very important to David and Rebecca (we did their engagement at a farmer’s market) so when they met Chef Jensen from the Cass House, they gave him three keywords and told him to run with it: fresh, local and in-season. He created a menu just for them that included appetizers like pizza with duck confit pizza with brie and caramelized onions, crab cakes with saffrom aioli, and oxtail empanadas with lime creme fraiche. Dinner included a market salad made with fresh veggies from their garden (which surrounded the guests at the reception), 10-hour braised Kobe Short ribs with Meyer lemon gremolata, honey & thyme glazed chicken, grilled corn and mascarpone polenta and wood-fired market ratatouille. Everything was served family style.
