Soft sounds of the sea, idyllic nature, bright eyes and wildly appearing flower arrangements sound the bell for Holly and Nick and their California Dream Wedding.

Noisily waves crush on the shore; dashing against rugged cliffs. Yet at top you only hear soft rushing. California´s sun shines powerful from the sky, caught by dense treetops to give comfortable shade.

Big Sur appears spacious and groomed today, perfect for a jamboree of love. Tears of joy and sincere laughter, emotional speeches and heartfelt wishes attend this cute couple into their new life of togetherness…

Incredibly artful pictures by Lauren Balingit  show a very special outdoor wedding: casual yet formal, plain yet elegant.

We knew we wanted an outdoor wedding.” bride Holly explained. „One with an ambiance that drew more from its natural surroundings than any physical item we might bring in. With this in mind, it was hard not to be enthralled with Big Sur.“

Just a few nifty details were necessary to mirror the venue´s breathtaking beauty on the dinner tables and so floral table runners and beautiful flower arrangements by Intertwine by Kelly Lenard  decorated every table. Nothing could go wrong, or could it?

„Roughly five weeks before the wedding we learned that a fire was threatening Big Sur and the surrounding area. We thought we had to call off the wedding, and wavered between canceling it and relocating it. Ultimately, we decided to move forward and lock in our vendors 6 days before the wedding and hope for the best. Our gamble paid off.“ the bride told us.

Thanks to the professional wedding coordination by Elegant Events by Diane Allen  and photographer Lauren Balingit Holly and Nick celebrated the party of their lives and enjoyed this day to the fullest.

We couldn’t have asked for a better team.“ Holly raves and adds: „Lauren’s photos so perfectly captured our joy and her attention to detail and movement is stunning.“
