Ariel and Craig’s La Venta Inn Wedding was beautifully captured by Stacee on a gorgeous spring day in Palos Verdes. Craig and Ariel first met through mutual friends at a bar. “Craig and I met at the local sports bar in Manhattan Beach over Labor Day weekend. We have mutual friends and this was the first time we had crossed paths. After we all ate, Craig and his friend were leaving when I ran after him to give him my number…The rest is history.”
We are so glad Ariel took that chance and gave Craig her number! We loves these two and their zest for life. They love everything adventurous and can always be found traveling, camping, exploring…you name it, they love it! Their proposal fit wonderfully into their outdoorsy personalities. “The proposal happened in Pebble Beach, CA in July 2018. Craig surprised me with a day trip up to Big Sur. We are big outdoorsy people and love hiking/camping. This was the week that Big Sur had just reopened. We flew up to Monterey and drove down to Big Sur where we went on two hikes. Craig had all intentions of proposing there, but was a little put off by the amount of people. After the hikes we decided to head to Pebble Beach and drive the famous 17-Mile drive. That is where Craig proposed!” This sounds epic!!
This La Venta Inn wedding had beauty, tradition, and glamour all mixed together to create the perfect atmosphere for Ariel and Craig’s family and friends to party the night away! We were so blessed to be part of this wedding day team and we wish Ariel and Craig a lifetime of happiness and adventures together as husband and wife!
