Tonya and Andrew: Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club wedding

Tonya and Andrew are so beautiful and, while a little shy posing for the camera, they didn’t hold back when it came to celebrating with their friends — this is the perfect recipe for some of the most beautiful candid wedding photography and we loved being able to capture it.

Not only are these two such beautiful people, their wedding was so lovely and so thoughtfully pulled together. Tonya and Andrew were married in December, when the country club would be decorated for the holidays. However, Tonya is drawn to pinks and golds. I love the way she her talented florist, Jennifer of Simply Glamorous, pulled together the reds along with the pinks to create a really beautiful palette that brought everything together so perfectly.

This is actually the last wedding Dad photographed with me before completely retiring from wedding photography, and we couldn’t have asked for a better send-off event. A loving and beautiful couple, a gorgeous sunset ceremony at a familiar and elegant venue, really fun people – in fact, this was one of the most fun mix of personalities amongst party-goers we’ve seen and we loved it. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as we enjoyed taking them (although that might be tough). :-)
