An intimate Big Sur wedding

S&R married with an intimate ceremony and dinner celebration at the breathtakingly beautiful Ventana Inn. Neither Ben or I had ever visited Big Sur, a ridiculously picturesque area south of Monterey where the Santa Lucia Mountains tower over the Pacific Ocean. While preparing for the wedding, we stayed at the more rustic and quirky Deetjen's Big Sur Inn (which does not host weddings but is a wonderful place to stay). It's also conveniently located in a cool redwood grove, which kept the flowers happy. Thank you, S&R, for involving us in your celebration and introducing both of us to such a beautiful part of the world!

On that note, if anyone's looking for event flowers in the Big Sur area, drop us a line : ).

Private dining at Torc

If you're planning an engagement party, rehearsal dinner, birthday, or other celebration, take note: Torc's beautiful second floor dining room is now available for private dining for 10 to 40 guests. The beautiful food (highlighting local ingredients like Hudson pork and foraged mushrooms) and interior (highlighting natural materials like the original stone walls and hardwood floors) make this restaurant one of our favorite places both to enjoy a meal and to work. Here is authenticity and quality, all the way.
