Although Charles grew up in Los Angeles, since his family moved up to Pebble Beach after he graduated high school, we had spent many weekends there visiting them. From very early on, the Pebble Beach/Carmel area had always felt special to us. In addition to its unbelievably beautiful setting, we celebrated many milestones there throughout our relationship. When we got engaged, we decided we wanted to share the magic of Pebble Beach/Carmel with the people we loved most.
Both being from Georgia, we wanted something within the state we were raised in, but still wanted a destination wedding – one where our guests could completely unplug and be present with us all weekend long. We stumbled upon Ford Plantation and instantly fell in love with its charming yet grand property and knew nothing else would hold a candle to its beauty.
I'm pretty confident in saying that I thought of almost everything when planning my wedding. Except when it came to where I'd get dressed. I assumed I'd primp and prep where I stayed all weekend but it wasn't until that morning, with my makeup artist setting up shop and family and friends running about that I realized a different space might've been a good idea.
