Nestled above the forests and overlooking the dazzling the Monterey Bay, Chaminade Resort & Spa, is a dream wedding destination. After a stunning day with Mila and Jim, I’m excited to share the photos from their wedding day.
Their early December wedding day was a perfect sunny day surrounded by their friends and family gathering in the lush yards of Chaminade overlooking a glittering sun lazily lowering over the Santa Cruz region.
The ceremony was led by their joyous friend, Kelly, and with many fun stories interwoven, we all smiled with Mila and Jim. Kelly hung the mistletoe over them for their celebratory kiss, aw! With beaming smiles on their faces, the two walked back down the aisle as husband and wife.
Guests enjoyed the beautiful outdoor patio and cozy fireplace as they took in the colorful splash of layers over the horizon and the moon coming into view. After an incredible dinner and heartfelt toasts, the newlyweds danced lovingly on the dancefloor. Tony Lindsey and his band filled the room with soul-satisfying music. It was beautiful watching Jim and Mila get lost in each other as they spun around the dance floor, what a sweet love to witness!
Mila and Jim, thank you for the honor of capturing your wedding day!
