Chic Outdoorsy Wedding Above the Pacific | Big Sur

000091530006.jpg

As California natives, Big Sur has held a special place for both Alexis and Derek and when they selected Ventana for their wedding, they liked the idea of sharing an entire weekend in Big Sur with their friends and family.

The day began with welcome drinks at the Glass House, overlooking Big Sur’s dramatic coastline. Jackson, the 13-year-old family dog played ring bearer for their ceremony in the redwood grove. Wild, unruly grasses in the florals juxtaposed modern lines on the invites and menus, the perfect embrace of natural, yet chic Big Sur luxury. Ventana sits above the fog line and the glow of the setting sun over the mist lit up the oak trees and the guests at their tables overlooking the water. 

For their first dance, a friend performed a Van Morrison tune and after dinner and cake, a sleeping baby Van would be serenaded with more acoustic Van Morrison around the fire pits. The night had exactly the fun, outdoorsy, big family dinner party vibe they had hoped for.
