Matt + Ali {Shell Beach, CA}

If Matt and Ali were a chocolate truffle they would have a gooey center consisting of awesome-sauce. They were such a joy to be around and photograph on their wedding day.

They got married at The Cliffs Resort in Shell Beach which is just down the 101 from my house. Matt and Ali chose The Cliffs because they wanted to have a destination wedding. Their guests came from L.A. and as far as the east coast. They went to great lengths to create an atmosphere of comfort and enjoyment for all of the people invited and involved. Because Ali is an actress all of the esthetic details were of the utmost importance to her. She really put her heart and soul into making sure her wedding looked and felt beautiful. She wanted people to come for the weekend, celebrate in style, and leave feeling refreshed by the Central Coast love. Matt and Ali, you pulled it off amazingly! Way to throw a party!

Adorments brought the floral beauty. A Santa Maria Mariachi band kept the guests happy during the cocktail hour and The San Luis Jazz Band had everybody dancing into the night. It was such a classy yet cozy wedding celebration.
