Wind and Sea Getting Ready Photos
The¬†girls couldn’t wait for the day to start. We all decided in advance that we would be ready at least 90 minutes before guest arrival. Doing so allowed us to utilize the beautiful Wind and Sea grounds for some great pics:)

All in all it was a great day that went on well into the evening. Wind and Sea Big Sur is a great place for an intimate wedding. The max capacity is 60 persons & guests must be shuttled in as there is limited parking. There are a lot of stairs as the entire property is on a steep slope. I was fortunate to photograph 6 weddings at Wind and Sea this year (and 12 total to date)…I am very familiar with the property & what can be done there.

Don’t hesitate to contact me by clicking this link if you’re thinking of getting married at Wind and Sea. I’m happy to share with you my thoughts about what works, what’s mandatory & what you can skip:) I can also furnish overview shots of different parts of the property decorated for different weddings at different times of the year.
