Chateau Julien Wedding | Photos in Carmel Valley

We’ve prepared Jen and Ignacio’s blog post while still here on the beautiful island of Oahu in Hawaii. This Saturday’s destination wedding was gorgeous and we can’t wait to see what we’ve captured. We’ll be coming back to the Bay Area shortly, but not before we spend a few days just enjoying the tropical paradise :)

Jen and Ignacio’s amazing Chateau Julien wedding took place in Carmel Valley on Saturday of Labor Day weekend. While we always love winery weddings this particular venue was just beyond words: the ceremony took place in a barrel-filled wine cellar and the wedding continued with a reception at the stylish courtyard.

Ignacio first saw the bride when she appeared in the doorway of the Chateau and everyone could just feel their love and emotions.

It was awesome to see that the engagement session guestbook we made for Jen and Ignacio was a big hit:

We absolutely loved the courtyard:
