Corrine and Matt Parker's wedding in Monterey California

A few months ago, my husband and I headed over to the west coast to celebrate the marriage of dear friends, Cory and Matt (Parker).  Their wedding took place in Monterey, California - about two hours from San Francisco and noted for Cannery Row, beautiful scenic views, and the Monterey Aquarium.

Before the ceremony, Cory and Parker took pictures, but they first had to do their first glance.  I love how Parker is keeping his eyes closed - you can see the groomsman here that guided him to the spot where the beautiful bride was waiting.

I really love this picture because you can see Parker's expression of complete awe. 
Here is an example of how beautiful the location was. 

This would look great on a large canvas in their home!

Their ceremony was one of the highlights of their wedding day.  As a wedding planner in Philadelphia, I rarely get to coordinate a ceremony on a cliff overlooking the ocean... I mean... could it be more picturesque?

That tree in the background is perfect too.  They couldn't have picked a better place for a wedding ceremony!  This ceremony was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I've witnessed.

They chose untraditional ceremony music which were personal to them.  Guests appreciated their music choices since we knew their history.

Last minute, Cory asked me to step in to coordinate their ceremony.  I was happy to help, and I made sure that she made it down the aisle.  It was an honor to help in my friends' wedding.

I'm a huge fan of bridesmaids wearing different dresses, and even a bigger fan of dresses of different shades of the same color.  The blue was perfect for this Monterey wedding - because it really brought out the ocean colors. All the ladies looked beautiful!

Cory rocked these awesome kicks in lieu of the traditional wedding shoe.  Also, if you're going to climb rocks to get a great shot, you can't do it in heels!

Isn't she beautiful? She was literally glowing throughout the day.

The reception was hopping and people danced all night.  Celebrating with a great couple, with perfect weather and great company - it was a wonderful wedding we'll never forget.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Parker!!!

Special thanks to their photographer: Colleen Rosenthal : http://www.rosenthalphotography.com/ for providing these great images!
