Amy + Elliott (Wedding Photography) @ Perry House, Monterey

Amy and Elliott had a sexy, romantic, fun Capitola Beach engagement shoot in October 2011. It was overcast that day, so it is only appropriate that their July 2012 wedding would have cloudy skies over Monterey as well. But the weather didn’t dampen the mood on this shining couple. They chose the recently remodeled Perry House for their venue, and I must say it’s such a perfect blend of outdoor patio areas, multi-level porches, gorgeously-furnished suite and large indoor dance floor. They’ve got a permanent outdoor wood-fired brick oven which made for wicked-awesome additions to the dinner fare, and all kinds of little nooks and crannies for small groups to hang out around stone-circle fire pits. Amy and Elliott are so accepting of each other, I have no doubt they’ll enjoy all the blessings of marriage and a long life together. Their chemistry simply made my job easier – thanks guys! A few things I’m not likely to forget about this wedding: fruity rings  (okay, that was my idea…), dramatic bridal party portraits, perfect recessional bubbles, fun cocktail straws/party favors, passionate love, the staring girls, the best man (also here, here, and oh, here), and who could forget Elliott’s great grandma who wouldn’t have missed this wedding for the world.

Enjoy my personal favorites below, I think they tell the story of the day if you only have a couple minutes to look. If you’ve got several hours to kill, check out the 1,000+ photos at
