Jenny and Jef are two of just the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. They found each other in Carmel and their internal beauty absolutely matches the external radiance of where they live. Holman Ranch where they chose to wed is one of those magical places you wish you could back to again and again. It’s just one of those plots of land you want to get lost in. Elegant, dusty, wild yet tamed. Ranch style love is what I’d call it. Not only was I fortunate enough to photograph these two beautiful people in such a superb setting, but I was able to assist one of my dearest friends Carlie Statsky for the day. We had so much fun following Jenny and Jef around all day but had to stop for a moment during the ceremony to take in the truly breathtaking view. The very personal ceremony officiated by one of the couple’s friends followed with a beautiful courtyard dinner where a round of toasts made it difficult for me to keep my camera steady as I laughed hysterically particularly at Jenny’s sister’s speech outlining the various childhood lies Jenny spun to terrify her younger sister. Who knew such a sweet innocent girl as Jenny could be such a conniving older sister? With laughter still fresh in the air, dancing in the barn began, followed with a photo booth area I manned for the end of the night (photos at the end). The whole day was organized beautifully by the wonderful ladies at Coastside Couture. This perfect day was followed by a perfect night of bright twinkling stars marking the beginning of Jenny and Jef’s true dream come true.
