A Casual Beach Wedding at Monterey Beach Party in Monterey, California

Anna Chen (29, in technical outsourcing) and Jeff Chong (33, a software engineer) had their first date on New Year’s Eve in San Francisco, California and had been dating ever since. On their five-year anniversary, Jeff decorated Anna’s place with candles and balloons while she was at work. When she came back home from work, she was pleasantly surprised to find Jeff along with a ring. The couple agreed that they wanted a small wedding with immediate family members and friends, not to mention their dog Didi, to be able to properly celebrate their love for one another. They searched for a venue that allowed pets, and luckily came across Monterey Beach Weddings in Monterey, California. The color palette was sky blue, mint green and lemon yellow that reminded the couple of sea glass to go with their beach wedding, which accented wedding elements from the invitations and programs stationary to the decor seen throughout the venue. Two weeks before the wedding, Anna and Jeff made twine chandeliers to add to the arch and dessert table at the reception. The wedding day was both a casual and intimate celebration with guests, who were able to kick off their shoes and truly take in the beach surroundings.
