A Bernardus Vineyard Wedding in the Autumn {Andrea + Sean}

Yesterday evening, Sean & Andrea came to my home for a premier viewing party to see all their wedding photos using my projector and 12 foot wall! It was so special to be in the same room with them while they viewed their wedding photos for the first time. We relived the day together over wine & cheese and their good friend Ashley joined in the fun. Check out their online slideshow to music —> www.nicolegoddard.com/andrea_sean

THE WEDDING DAY RECAP ::: Sean & Andrea wed at the exquisite Spanish Colonial style chapel called San Carlos Cathedral on a sunny, Autumn day in Monterey, CA. They were joined by their close friends and family as they happily exchanged their vows during their Catholic Ceremony. Andrea looked gorgeous. I loved the way she altered her dress to show off her pretty purple heels and the cap sleeves were so great.

Their ceremony was followed by an outdoor cocktail hour surrounded by blue skies, fountains, signature margarita martinis, delish hors d’oeuvres, live music, picturesque hills and the award-winning, Bernardus Lodge Winery in Carmel Valley. I was able to take Sean & Andrea into the vineyards for some sweet shots during this time! The light was perfect. The backdrop was dreamy. And, the connection to each other was inspirational.

After the guests danced the night away to the talented band, Steve Ezzo & The Monterey Bay All Stars, they were greeted by Sean’s favorite food, a cereal bar. What a fun & unique way to wrap up a fantastic wedding celebration. It was a hit among the guests, and of course by Sean himself!

A special thanks to their fabulous wedding coordinator, Christy Daly, with Allure Consulting and to my wonderful 2nd photographer/assistant, Kara Snider! Please check out all of the wonderful vendors who all helped make Sean & Andrea’s wedding a huge success.

CONGRATS to you both, Andrea & Sean. I am so happy to not only call you clients, but also my friends!
