Clifftop Views. Windswept Hair. This Engagement Has Everything.

We like to think of ourselves as experts in the engagement session department. I mean, we’ve covered what to wear, where to shoot, and how to get those dreamy, romantic photos we all completely adore. And this e-sesh from Winsome And Wright? It puts all of the above into practice. Go see the full gallery with a trip to The Vault!

From the Bride to be…Matt and I were introduced by his sister-in-law during my senior year in college at a fundraiser. He was (and still is) hilarious, nerdy, and awkward enough to give me the wrong number during our initial phone number exchange. Our first date was at a Halloween party, to where he wore a Slytherin crest on his costume knowing that it was my favorite Harry Potter house. That’s when I knew a magical adventure was in the works.

Over the years, we’ve grown to love nature and have made experiencing it a priority in our lives. We’ve traveled near and far to some of the most enchanting parts of the world and Matt even pulled off an epic proposal in Yosemite National Park! The next stop for us was Big Sur and taking our engagement photos there was only natural.

When we discovered Faith of Winsome of Wright, we were in awe. Her photos were beautiful and her personality was even more so. She was friendly, positive, and helpful right from the beginning. During the session, she made us feel comfortable and knew exactly what she was doing with the camera. We give Winsome and Wright our highest of recommendations.

From Cassidy CarsonOn the journey to create a simple yet mystical elopement, Southern Social’s scouting team knew the perfect setting for Grace and Connor encompassed a stunning backdrop to their pewter color palette. To incorporate Grace and Connor’s road trip memories across the west coast, the ocean was the completed link to the winning location. The dreamy Pfeiffer Beach tucked away in the small town of Big Sur with its mysterious purple sand and towering cliffs made for the most romantic and intimate ceremony. A radiant sunset, whipping waves and sea spray were welcome accompaniments imposing a sense of effortless poise in Cassidy’s photos. Petal & Pine crafted Grace’s captivating bouquet foraging local flowers and pairing with Silk and Willow’s finest ribbon that delicately danced in the wind. But, Grace’s Oceana Monique Lhuillier gown paired with a cathedral veil handmade by Alice & Mae and a classic smoky eye by Leslie Ellis stole the show! Olive Juice Press created handsome stationery including hand-made paper immersed with sweet love notes for Grace and Connor’s bottle toss into the ocean, as well as hand-lettered oyster shells for keepsakes for the handful of wedding VIPs in attendance. Grace, Connor and guests were enthralled by the power of simplicity at this gorgeous elopement!
