West Clay was empty on this hot summer day. Kate and Jordan held hands and walked through downtown West Clay, their wedding party following them. The happy noise of their laughter filled the area. This was just one of the great moments from their gorgeous Carmel backyard wedding day.
After doing photos in West Clay, we headed over to the Ritz Charles to do some photos of Kate and Jordan in one of their gardens. The gardens at Ritz Charles are gorgeous and made for a lovely backdrop for photos. Ritz Charles is an important place for Kate and Jordan, because they both work there, and they met while they were working there. We love visiting locations that are significant to our couples for their portraits. It doesn’t hurt that Ritz Charles is also a gorgeous wedding venue.
A big thanks to all the vendors who helped make this wedding so wonderful!
