Elisabeth & James created an intimate, romantic affair in Big Sur to celebrate their nuptials. The day was all about close friends & family–about 45 people attended. Along with daytime hikes and evening parties, family & friends helped assemble floral arrangements, bouquets and boutonnières at a rental Elisabeth & James found through an employee at the Big Sur Bakery. The personal involvement of guests made everything more meaningful. Elisabeth’s first teenage job was working for a florist so she created her own bouquet. Elisabeth is also an artist and created the couple’s invitation with a hand-carved whale stamp which she painted with gouache. Enjoy the rest of this Intimate Big Sur Wedding captured by Kate Harrison. Be sure to see more prettiness in the full wedding gallery.
Elisabeth & James each drove a Karmann Ghia at one point in their lives: it was James’ first car and Elisabeth drove one years ago in San Francisco. After they placed a hopeful ad on craigslist, a new owner of a white Karmann Ghia responded and loaned her car to them for a few hours! They were giddy.
