From Blueberry Photography… You couldn’t ask for a more photogenic couple than Sarah and Mike or a more gorgeous backdrop than that of the seaside Villa Montara! Not only is the house architecturally incredible and unique, it backs onto the edge of a cliff that overlooks the beautiful Pacific Ocean. It is definitely one of the most breathtaking venues on the California coast. And as if that wasn’t enough on its own, their wedding had so many incredible details! Succulents as wedding favors and in Sarah’s bouquet, personalized match boxes, hats and parasols for the ceremony, giant clam shells bordering the ceremony site and an absolutely stunning cake! Their guestbook was actually the trunk of a tree and the guests put their thumbprints in shades of green ink onto the branches so that they looked like leaves! Such a fun idea! Thee couple held a Buddhist ceremony, which ended when the monk showered the couple with flower petals as they kissed each other for the first time as husband and wife. It was so sweet! There were so many great toasts given to Mike and Sarah that it seemed impossible to top them. Then Mike gave his toast to Sarah. There wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd as he gave the most romantic and heart-felt speech we had ever heard.
