Big Sur Destination Wedding
My confession is this –
As a guy, one of the most entertaining parts about a wedding is the location and the honeymoon. And who would say no to a Big Sur destination wedding? I am a big fan of the destination weddings and a romantic honeymoon. It’s like a free week or so of travel where you can experience a whole new place. This last week I had the opportunity to head out to Big Sur in California. Robbi (my main squeeze) rented this beautiful barn that had been restored and it was an one of the most peaceful places I’ve been too in a long time. Sat on top of a hill on the ocean it could not have been more perfect. Throw in the gorgeous beaches and ancient forests and you have one beautiful wedding destination. If you get a chance I would recommend going to Pfeiffer Beach. This is where we would have the wedding. We topped it off with a drive up the Oregon coast. There were horses, incredible food, peace and quiet and extremely romantic get away.
One of my favorite things about a spot like this, is that while it certainly isn’t the cheapest place in the world, it can be done really on a really affordable budget. To me, that makes a perfect wedding spot. It still has some of that wild untamed feel to it and there are even places where you can’t get cell phone service and can totally be dialed into the experience. Waking up to the surf and having a gorgeous view of the Milky Way every night just can’t be beaten. I would also recommend playing with the horses and there are some amazing locations to site the dolphins and seals. There are some really wonderful bakeries along the journey and definitely parts of the area that feel really untouched. I’ve also enclosed some photos of our love story there in Big Sur.
