Real Couple: Ali + John San Carlos Cathedral Monterey Wedding

One of Monterey’s most beautiful and traditional wedding venues is the San Carlos Cathedral. The San Carlos Cathedral is the oldest continuously functioning church and the first stone building in the State of California (Source). Due to its history, it was the perfect venue for Ali and John!

The Dress

Ali chose a beautiful strapless ballgown with a long train and a beaded top. It was such a joy helping her choose this dress at Epiphany Boutique! Her train bellows out and creates a remarkable impact. This dress, paired with her Badgley Mischka bridal shoes and her white bouquet by Jocelyn’s flowers, were the perfect combination. We can’t wait to see more of this in 2020 brides!

The Wedding Party

We love that the bridesmaids are dressed in strapless emerald green gowns. Although so many brides are opting for bridesmaids to dress in their own styles, it is refreshing to see the traditional choice for them to all wear the same dress!

The Ceremony

Our favorite part about the ceremony was Ali’s custom made fingertip veil. She wore it lower in her hair, but we love how beautiful it looks- especially from the side!
