Elyse and Alex: classically beautiful and adorably in love

When I sat down to meet Elyse at Starbucks, I was so hopeful that she would ask us to be her photographers. Of course she’s beautiful. But beyond that, as we chatted about wedding plans and photos, she lit up with excitement about her wedding to Alex. And when she talked about him, she glowed even more. Her plans were going to be beautiful. The venues where they would be getting married and holding their reception, St. Joseph Cathedral downtown and Carmel Mountain Ranch Estates, are two of our favorites. But above all, this is the kind of love we love to photograph. Lucky for us, Elyse and Alex did ask us to be their photographers and the day was everything we hoped it would be.

Be sure to scroll to the end of this post for a list of the wedding professionals who helped to make Elyse’s vision come to be.

Thank you again, Elyse and Alex, for asking us to help capture these memories. We loved spending your day with you!
