With an ocean wedding in mind, Jenessa and Tyson fell head over heels for Stewart’s Cove in Carmel the first time they visited. The oceanside locale made the perfect setting for the couple’s beach ceremony, not to mention their sunset portraits after saying “I do!” Heather Elizabeth Photography impeccably captured the rustic and romantic details that personalized Jenessa and Tyson’s dream wedding by the sea.
Jenessa and Tyson
Stewart’s Cove, Carmel, California
We both decided early on into the planning that getting married by the ocean was the way for us. We both find spirituality being near the ocean, and thought it would be such a magical place to say our vows. Plus, we were engaged by the ocean so it just fit!
One of my really good friends introduced me to “Stewart’s Cove” in Carmel and I just melted! It is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to in California. The water is turquoise, the sand is white, and there is a rustic beauty to it. I love romance and pretty, soft colors, so we went with a “rustic beach meets bling” theme. Soft pinks and mints for the wedding party, a pop of bright flowers, crystals and sheer fabric hung from the canopy, and beach wood candle holders to line the aisle.
When I surprised Tyson and sang to him with the amazing band. Looking into his eyes and singing to him was almost better than saying our vows! I chose to sing “Right Down the Line.” It was such a magical moment.
The Couple Recommends:
The flowers were absolutely stunning, Rick is honestly so talented and easy to work with! Heather our photographer was able to capture the most amazing pictures and did so without an assistant! We have SO many wonderful frozen memories to choose from, and she is also very easy to work with! The food at Kula Ranch was so yummy, we received a lot of good feedback from our guests. The cheesecake bites that we had for desert from Cheesecake Dreamations were also a hit. Steve Ezzo is so talented and his band is amazingly professional. Our guests had an amazing time dancing the night away! We were also very impressed and happy with our wedding video! I am SO happy with all of our wedding professionals all around!
