Caroline + Laurent: 5.6.17 | A Folktale Winery Wedding | Carmel, California

From the moment Caroline reached out to me, I was excited for a number of reasons:  1) She was a high school classmate of Jeff’s (Go St. Ignatius!) 2) She was getting married in Carmel (Um, YES!) And 3) The theme of their wedding theme was Provence  (As in France.  As in Laurent’s home.  As in, DREAM WEDDING!)  And dream wedding it was!  Caroline + Laurent couldn’t have picked a more perfect location than the spectacular property at Folktale Winery.  The stunning architecture and natural beauty feels as if you’ve been transported to the French countryside, making Laurent and his family feel right at home in the breathtaking gardens and surrounding vineyards.  Coupled with the fact that that young Caroline used to visit this same property as a child, accompanying her parents on long weekends in the Carmel Valley, it was a match made in heaven, much like the couple themselves.  Tears welled in her eyes as Caroline walked down the aisle to her soon-to-be husband.   Surrounded by less than 20 of their closest friends and family, they pledged their love and their lives to one another in the gorgeous light-filled gallery in the heart of the winery.  Among the day’s classic details were some of the best of the best of weddings: (Pardon me, while I name drop.) A Vera Wang gown, Manolo Blahnik shoes, Coco Chanel perfume, a Hugo Boss tuxedo and Tiffany wedding rings?  It’s like an all-star team!  Add to that the stylistic genius of Robin Sevrina Events, whose attention to every last detail makes a photographer’s heart swoon!  But this wedding wasn’t only beautiful, it was full of glimpses of Caroline + Laurent’s playful nature + awesome careers: from their Star Wars accessories to the pre-wedding video games with the guys, their personalities shone through, and everything was fun and fancy at once, just like Caroline and Laurent.  To the newlyweds – I can’t thank you enough for including me in your incredible wedding and am already excited for our next double date over burgers!  Cheers to you!
