Michelle & Colin’s amazing destination wedding at Pebble Beach was featured recently on Destination I Do.

Although we have visited Monterey many times, this was our first time shooting a wedding there. Michelle & Colin pulled out all the stops for their wedding at the iconic Pebble Beach Resort. Looking past the beautiful flowers and the amazing venue settings, what we saw permeating throughout the wedding is the amazing love that these two feel for each other. Is was not the tears that Colin shed when he saw Michelle walking down the aisle, nor the smile on Michelle’s face when she saw Colin standing up at the altar. It is that invisible bond that you feel when you see two people that are perfect for each other celebrating their union.

Michelle & Colin, thank you for having us at your wedding. We wish you many many years of happiness to come.

Much love,
Tammy, Mark and Little Maddy

Michi & Yo met the old fashioned way, via the internet. He was a man living in Japan and she a woman living in the US. They chatted online and the next thing you know, she is flying to Japan to get married. When I went to Japan in October, Michi & Yo decided to have an engagement session done. It was pouring that day since a typhoon was nearby at the time, but i think it worked out pretty well.

Just yesterday the Supreme Court struck down Defense of Marriage Act and we moved one step closer toward marriage equality. It just happens that a few days earlier Kevin and Tony’s beautiful wedding in Lake Tahoe got featured in Modern Luxury’s Brides California Magazine.
We could not be happier for both events.

Here is our original blog entry for the wedding.

We are excited to be part of Kevin and Tony’s beautiful wedding in Hellman Ehrman Mansion in Lake Tahoe. They are a gorgeous, talented, and enthusiastic couple who love life and making every moment count. We fell in love with them from the very beginning and loved capturing the sweetness between them.

The wedding day was perfect. The lakeside ceremony had a fantastic view. The decoration around the charming mansion was exquisite and added a personal touch. Have we mention how talented they are? From making their own ties to handwriting the guests seating chart on a glass door, we were impressed and in-awe with the effort and the amazing results.

Every moment of Kevin and Tony’s day was filled with love and laughter. From Laura belting out some sweet tunes with her incredible voice to Marissa’s infectious joyful laughter to Tony and his mom dancing to “Crazy in Love” to Francis busting out some serious dance moves, we are honored to witness such happy moments on this very special day.

Kevin and Tony – thank you so much for trusting us and allow us to document your day! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together!

much love,
Tammy, Mark and little Maddy
