Jody and Larry’s Bernardus Lodge wedding, in Carmel Valley, was intimate and romantic. If you’ve never visited Bernardus Lodge, get your keys and drive there immediately! The landscaping at this resort is calming and classic with Mediterranean colors and the mix of olive tress, lavender and vineyards. I was unfamiliar with Carmel Valley, but am in love with it now. It’s close enough to the beautiful Northern California coast, but is protected from the cool fog by a stunning mountain range. This is what allowed Jody and Larry to have both an outdoor ceremony and reception. As you can see, I am inspired by the textures and layers the venue provides me, and the service is impeccable. Jody’s beauty was easy to capture, as her look is so timeless. The red lips and long veil were striking. Of course, who can resist a man in uniform? Larry was so handsome and so in love with his bride. I am so excited for their new lives together and am thrilled the day was so memorable. Congratulations to Jody and Larry!
