Courtney and David's Wedding. Monterey

Ceremony and reception at the Pasadera Country Club in Monterey.

The Monterey peninsula is a beautiful region and benefits from a very temperate climate. Pasadera adds to this a private Jack Nicklaus designed golf course and an impressive rustic earth-toned clubhouse with exposed beams and tile roofs. I'm told that Courtney fell in love with the location when she visited and I can see why! The use of wood, stone, and brick is very nice. There is an incredible faux stone paved courtyard with large Oak trees and a fountain where the ceremony was held.

Courtney and David met at work. That evening Courtney's mom told a great story about how their romance first started involving a hose, drop ceiling, and dripping water. I guess there was something in that water because now they are married! Hmmm, that technique seems to loosely follow a concept put forth in The Game (i.e. Mystery Method).

The clear weather was perfect for their outdoor ceremony and plein air dancing later that evening. The entire wedding was wonderfully relaxed and stress free. There was a hosted bar, open seating, and plenty of areas for guests to congregate both inside and outside the clubhouse. Courtney is half Chinese and David, from Mexico which made for a great mix of guests not to mention the Latin dancing!
