We were thrilled to head to Bodega Bay for the first time to shoot Mark and Heathers Wedding! Bodega Bay is best known as the primary filming location for Alfred Hitchcocks thriller ‘The Birds’ (which is actually an awesome watch if you are into scary movies).
The town is so small but filled with so much charm. The views of the bay are spectacular. Our groom said they visited once and the next trip up they bought their home there along the waterfront! Anyone who has visited can attest that it is a true California gem.
Mark and Heather wanted a very simple wedding. Heather said her main objective was to marry the man she loves and have a beautiful day with their family. Pretty lovely, right?
The details were so gorgeous. Simple with lots of elegance. Heather wore one dress for the cocktail hour and another for the ceremony and dinner. Check out her awesome ring with stones all around the band!
Cocktail hour was on the deck of her neighbors home, complete with pina coladas and an assortment of cheeses, crackers, spicy tuna wraps, oysters and various other hors d’jours.
Heather changed into her wedding dress while the guests moved over to the bride and grooms home to get married on their deck. The brides cousin officiated the wedding while the fog rolled in over the bay. It was a touching and intimate ceremony.
Dinner followed on long, beautifully decorated tables in the couples home.
Mackey the puppy followed Heather around most of the day and was thrilled for the newlyweds as well 😉
The couples favorite Ice Cream Cake was delivered and featured Peas and Carrots, since that is usually how the couple is described. Mark and Heather, like Peas and Carrots wouldn’t typically go together but just kind of work.
We loved this day and loved our time with this great couple.
Congrats Mark & Heather!!
