Jasmine + Dylan | Santa Cruz Wedding

Jasmine+Dylan were married at a small beach at Pigeon Point Lighthouse right outside of Santa Cruz on the most perfect of sunny California days. When Jasmine first wrote me about documenting her wedding, we instantly connected, her thoughtful and honest words stole my heart and I was  overwhelmed with emotion and excitement to capture their celebration. Jasmine+Dylan are beautiful together, perfectly in sync with one another, and just some of the kindest humans I’ve ever had the pleasure to know … attentive, generous, thoughtful, gracious, lovers and wildly loved. They are beautiful and authentic people who I quickly came to admire.

Jasmine envisioned and created a unique wedding in some of the most gorgeous locations along the Coast of California, places that for me, along with the newlyweds who also grew up in Santa Cruz, stir up a deep sense of nostalgia and meaning. This coastline between Santa Cruz and San Fransisco is where many an adventure unfolded growing up, days spent on windy beaches and others under fierce sunshine, first roadtrips and freezing camp-outs, things I completely understood without a word mentioned, we got one another. The wedding party quite literally constructed the ceremony location from scratch, raking the beach and assembling the hand-painted yellow-wood-aisle under the strong mid-day sun, a strong sense of community and friendship accompanied every moment that day. The sweet 70s style coupled with the beach shack architecture of the Pigeon Point Hostel and the epic landscape of the hidden beach followed by the sprawling mountains surrounding the reception location at Pie Ranch, made for a stunning wedding. I am eternally happy to have met Jasmine+Dylan and to have been part of such a beautiful celebration of love. I am so happy for these two love birds and to have them on my life. Here’s to many years more full of love, adventure and joy, congrats to Jas+Dylan!
