Real Wedding: Debi + Dave’s Beautiful Beach Wedding

I love the simplicity of this beach wedding. The beautiful bouquet, the bride’s hair and gorgeous dress, the groom’s attire (with flip flops!), the bridesmaid’s dress, and the sign welcoming guests to the wedding – and to snuggle up with a blanket and beer! – um, perfect! This is totally my type of wedding. Nothing is over the top, just pure and simple beauty here. This wedding was photographed by the talented Allison C Photography and took place at the beautiful Carmel-by-the-Sea with the reception following at the Carmel Valley Ranch.
