I hate to be dramatic, but this wedding has officially taken my love of Jessica Burke up to a whole new level. She has a serious knack for capturing the most jaw-dropping weddings and this Santa Cruz beauty is no different. Add in the talents of Coastside Couture, and you’ve got a day that’s practically begging to find a home on this little ol’ wedding blog. So sit back, relax, and find your real wedding happy place right here.

From Jessica BurkeWhen the bride and groom started their venue search, the bride was set on getting married in a grove of redwood trees.  They found themselves at the River House, nestled in the hills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, such a lovely location.. but there was no redwood grove to be found!  The owners chatted briefly with the bride + groom and decided to clear out a grove just for their wedding, so sweet!  They did such a lovely job with the grove, complete with redwood trunk floor tiles and redwood benches, it truly is such a majestic setting for a wedding ceremony.
