The California coastline, especially the northern half, is probably our favorite place in the whole world. We have so many wonderful memories, including getting engaged, along the coast that it just seemed like a given that we would get married there.
If you followed our wedding planning from the start, we thought we had nailed down a venue pretty early on just north of Santa Cruz, but that did not end up working out... So we went back to the drawing board and ended up searching primarily on VBRO.com (Vacation Rental By Owner) and that's how we found Point Lobos Ridge.
We went up to visit the house, but we weren't actually able to go inside or really go on the property at all. We just got to look over a fence from a distance. But with the pictures we had seen on their website, we were sold from the beginning.
And now, after the fact, we're clearly able to say, that we couldn't have had our perfect wedding anywhere else...
