kerry + chris: glamping outdoor wedding in enchanting big sur, california

Weddings & Engagement
June 21, 2016

Glamping is a thing. This wedding is the epitome of it.

Kerry + Chris are outdoorsy, woodsy people by nature who very much enjoy spending time in nature – sometimes even with their kitty Lexie (very true, I’ve seen photos). Chris is a surfer guy and Kerry is an enthusiastic bubbly personality on a very popular tech gadget website/blog Engadget.

Their wedding was charming in all ways imaginable. Big Sur, in all its majestic wonder, was a beautiful setting complete with redwoods, streams + cliff sides galore. The two married in front of friends and family by the water at the Phieffer State Park. Reception followed at the picnic grounds and included speeches, dinner + dancing. For portraits, the newlyweds headed out to the cliffs for the most stunning sunset to cap off the perfect day out in the woods.

Obsessed with this one, here’s why…
