Helen & Joe (Big Sur, CA)Here's a glimpse of our Q&A with Helen and Joe. Getting to know a little more about them gets us excited to shoot their upcoming Carmel wedding and to get to know all of our 2014 couples to come! Q. What makes you come alive? What are you passionate about? A. I am passionate about the transcendence of love between people and places. I love to travel and see new sights, and I love being around family and good friends. We both love to give back to the community and enjoy volunteering together. Joe loves the outdoors and hiking (he once took his motorcycle cross country, camping and exploring along the way). // Q. Briefly describe your theme, décor, or anything unique you are planning on doing for your wedding. A. Simple elegance. Since the venue is at a winery in Carmel Valley the green valleys and golden sunlight really set the tone. We want a wedding that is naturally beautiful with nothing too cliche - where love in all relationships (us, family, friends) takes precedence.
