COVID-19 can’t stop their love!

Portia and Andrew had their wedding on October 10, 2020. They originally planned to be married at the Highlands Estate in Mendocino County, California, but due to COVID-19, they were forced to switch up their plans. No matter where the couple got married, this wedding would be stunning and elegant.

The newlyweds decided to have their wedding in Monterey, CA at La Playa Carmel. After they said “I do,” they traveled to the destination where their engagement story began. We captured Portia and Andrew’s sunset shots at the Garrapata State Park.

Wedding planning can be a long, thorough process. It is always so refreshing and calming when there’s a wedding coordinator behind the scenes for extra support. Portia and Andrew celebrated their reception in the backyard of their loved ones’ home. Cheri from Coastal Classy Events & Design coordinated a remarkable reception that all of their guests will remember forever.
