Renee & Mike // Holman Ranch Wedding // Carmel photographer

I think that Renee’s words do far more justice to the memory of this beautiful wedding day than mine ever could, needless to say, we absolutely fell in love with this couple and their amazing families….

Our relationship is unique and in some ways unbelievable. We have had the pleasure of being in each other’s lives since the age of five as we went to kindergarten through eighth grade together. We also have had some similar misfortunes that have given us an understanding for each other that other couples may not have. Our sisters were both in traumatic accidents that have left them paralyzed. While they are the toughest people we know, having an understanding of what each other’s families have gone through gives us all a bond that many families don’t have. It does not define any of our lives but it has created a kinship amongst the two families and is one of the many reasons why the Moriarty and the Cimino families can seamlessly come together as one. Even our sisters think of each other as sisters, which they get very disappointed when you tell them that is not exactly how it works. However, if we mention them we must mention the amazing support that our parents have given all of their children. From our sweet selfless mothers that are quietly handling all behind the scenes to our unwavering fathers who’s poignant words are always said at just the right time. These people especially have made “Mike and Renee” an easy thing.

A good man has always told us ‘classy never goes out of style’ this was continuously on our minds as we envisioned our picturesque ceremony, and created the romantically elegant reception, which turned into an all out love fest. The vision was ever evolving throughout the planning process, but the overall theme was to put Holman Ranch center stage with subtle or maybe not so subtle touches of extravagance to set the day apart. We included special sentimental touches like having the vintage car Renee’s parents drove away in at their wedding in the background, fabric hearts sewn on blankets for the guests made from our grade school uniform pattern, and Mike’s ring being made to match his dad’s ring. We always kept our guests in mind and did our best to make sure there was something for everyone. Our goal was always to have everyone leave with a full belly and a huge smile on their face. A big thanks to all of our vendors and Amy Byrd’s team for making our vision come to fruition!”

Jamie & Nick // Thomas Fogarty Winery wedding // Woodside photographer

I love that this couple made their blended families and their beautiful new son a central part of their wedding day. Nick carried his baby boy into the ceremony so that they could both watch their favorite girl walk down the aisle, and both of them were beaming from the moment that they saw her. Amy Burke did an amazing job with the bright and eclectic floral design. One of my favorite features was the dining pavilion ceiling that was full of giant flower spheres that hung over the tables. Thomas Fogarty Winery is beautiful any time of year, but it was an extra clear day so guests could enjoy views out over the entire Bay Area throughout the evening … but don’t let all of the pretty details and sweet moments fool you, this wedding was also a super fun party that we honestly didn’t want to leave!

Michelle & Jake // Carmel Valley Ranch Wedding // Carmel Photographer

This was another one of those days that we’ll never forget thanks to this sweet couple, their beautiful ceremony at the historic Mission Bascilica and the great party that followed at Carmel Valley Ranch. Michelle and Jake’s wedding was an extra romantic one, full of classic, elegant and timeless details, but it was also full of a whole lot of fun! We loved getting to know these two and their whole group of family and friends, who all seemed so close. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house during their speeches and first dances, and that includes their photographers’ eyes too. We always love working with Amy Byrd and her team, who kept the whole day flowing perfectly from start to finish. See a full feature of their wedding over on Style Me Pretty here.
