Bernardus Lodge Wedding - Matthew & Kate


Kate and Matthew had a lovely Carmel destination wedding at Bernardus Lodge & Spa. They had friends and family from California’s Bay Area as well as folks all the way from the East Coast. Guests stayed at the resort for three nights and enjoyed wine tasting and an amazing rehearsal dinner before the wedding day. It’s unbelievable to see what creative designers can do to transform a space! Collette Cuccia’s design team along with Monterey florist Fleurs du Soleil and Fiesta Lighting made magic happen flipping the ceremony space during cocktail hour into a twinkling wonderland dining experience. It was an unforgettable weekend for all! We photographed and filmed both events and what we learned from the people that know them most is that Kate & Matthew’s love story is an algorithm written in the stars.
