Mandy & Clinton’s Marvelous Monterey Pre-Wedding Excursion

Mandy and Clinton both serve in different branches of the military and have thus spent most of their relationship apart, which means the time they have together is that much more precious. It also means that they don’t have many photographs of themselves together!

To remedy this, we met up with them the day before their destination wedding in the coastal town of Monterey. The California sunshine they expected for their wedding weekend was replaced by biting winds and occasional slashes of rain, which made the renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium a welcome backdrop for their pre-wedding photos. With just a few hours to explore the aquatic exhibits, we marveled at the vast kelp forest, pulsating jellyfish, dizzying schools of sardines, preening penguins, and sharks, tuna, and other deep-sea denizens.

It was still light out and fairly dry when the aquarium closed so we made our way to nearby Lovers Point Park in Pacific Grove, hoping to catch their last sunset before they said “I do.” Although the sun mostly hid behind swathes of ominous-looking clouds, we had a fantastic time clambering around the rocks along the land’s edge before finishing with refreshing facefuls of rain. We’re honored to share these photos, and can’t wait to post some from their wedding, too (check back soon)!
