Jessica and Sean | Carmel | September 21 & 22, 2007

I had a fantastic weekend event to cover in Carmel for Jessica and Sean last weekend. The wedding and reception was held at the historic Highlands Inn -- a beautiful location.

They had a warm gathering of family and friends after their rehearsal. The dinner was at Il Fornaio in downtown Carmel. There were some speeches at the rehearsal dinner as well, and it was touching to hear how Sean and Jessica started dating -- they met at Sean's sister's wedding -- for the second time. Jess and Erin had been roommates in college at UCSB and so Sean had known Jess for several years, everything came together a few years later though at the wedding.

On the wedding day, Sean and two of his groomsmen decided to catch some waves, despite the cooler temperatures and steady rain.

The rain was pretty heavy early Saturday, and thankfully the clouds parted by around 1:30 pm and so the outdoor ceremony was on. Jessica was hugely relieved.

It was a great weekend! Have a great honeymoon you two!

Hey Brother -

Loved the photos....I was wondering if it wasn't going to be a surfing wedding on the beach...but your explanation solved that issue for me....

I liked the photo of the program/glasses....not sure why, but I like those. The cake looked scrumptious and the bride dancing with her eyes closed and a smile was priceless.

Great job!!

Peggy :)

In a few of those photos, I could swear the bride was Renee Zellweger. Great photos as usual.

Paul, great photos! You truly capture the great moments. I really like the contrasting light in the photo of the couple on the balcony at sunset. Was the light on the subjects sunlight, other light, or a flash with gel? Great photo.
