Cori and Kevin have known each other since they were 14 years old. They were neighbors, went to school together, and Cori said that while they never dated in high school, she sure had a big crush on him! When she ran into Kevin at a Fourth of July party in 2007, she didn’t let him out of her sight. They spent the entire summer together, but when fall rolled around, he moved back to San Luis Obispo. The move wasn’t enough to keep them apart, and they decided to keep things going long distance. After what Cori refers to as “six months of shenanigans”, she decided to move to be close to him. It ended up to be the best decision she ever made, and since then, they have spent eight years on the Central Coast together.
Cori said that her wedding was a dream come true, a “rustic, DIY love fest on top of a mountain.” They got married at a privately owned venue, a barn on a hill in Prefumo Canyon with panoramic views of the city. From the ceremony site you could see Morro Rock and the Pismo dunes, with the rolling hills of San Luis right behind them. It was a gorgeous location.
Almost all of their vendors were close friends, so everything was personalized and customized for the couple, making the day extra special. Friends and family supported them through the whole planning process and helped to make their day absolutely perfect. She said it was the most special and glorious day that she could ever imagine!
Their dessert table was absolute yummy perfection! We love all of the different colors, homemade touches, and the array of options.
From the custom seating chart and multiple signs to the breathtaking backdrop and smiles on this gorgeous couple’s faces, this wedding was one for the record books!
