Santa Cruz, I love you even though you are such a tease!

We were able to spend an amazing weekend in Santa Cruz with two of our fabulous couples. They are both getting married in the area this fall and we could not be more excited. So we were lucky enough to hang out at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk with John and Ursula. Yummy sunshine, rides, bright colors, and an adorable couple — who could ask for more?

The next day we hung out with Derek and Lauren. Geoff and Derek went to college in Sacramento before Derek left to finish his degree in Monterey. Lauren and Derek decided to take up living in Santa Cruz, I don’t blame them. They live just half a block from cliffs with an amazing ocean view. Some days I wish I lived out there! Here is their teaser, out on the cliff just above the beach that Derek proposed on.

Geoff and Ashley’s wedding in a fall wonderland

Wonderful Geoff and Ashley! These two are absolutely adorable. I am so excited to share their sweet and lovely wedding. Geoff and Ashley met each other at her Uncle’s Superbowl party. They both loved their opposing team but still fell head over heels for each other! They were married at Monte Verde Inn on in November. It was a perfect start to fall!

While the ladies were getting ready, Geoff was with Geoff. It is not very often I will get to say that! The guys prepared for the day just across the hall from us.

Time for their first look! Can’t you feel the love?

Geoff was ever so kind to get rid of a spider that had landed in Ashley’s bouquet. He was off to a great start to being a good hubby!

I love all of the fall colors.

Who could say no to tossing a few leaves around just before they get married!

Then we got these two off to get married. Early November was surprisingly perfect for an outside wedding. It was just warm enough and the fall colors were in full force. Love it!

The folks over at Monte Verde always do such a beautiful job of setting the stage for a lovely party. The reception details were so cute!

Geoff and Ashley Thank you again for having us apart of your big day! You were the perfect couple for a beautiful fall wedding!
