  • My fiancée and I were planning coast to coast motorcycle trip across USA and an intimate elopement along the way. Because we are from Europe, I was looking for company who can arrange everything for us and Weddings in Monterey was it. From first email, Brian was very helpful and responsive. He replied and answered all of my questions and helped with choosing the venue. We met 2 days before the ceremony and we went trough everything step by step, so we felt confident everything will be perfect. And so it was! Even more then perfect. The location was amazing and ceremony he wrote was so beautiful! Because we eloped, photographs were very important to us. Heidi did a great job. She made us feel relaxed and easy to work with. She listened to our wishes and helped us with her suggestions. You could see how much experience she has and how easy everything was. Even though it was our first photo shooting together the photos really look amazing. Brian and Heidi, thank you again for the most ... Read more

  • We had our small wedding in Carmel and Brian was our officiant and his wife Heidi did our photography. They were absolutely perfect for our special day. I wrote to each of them and planned our wedding, including location, actual ceremony language, logistics and photography schedule all by email. We never met either of them until the big day and I felt very comfortable doing so. It is rare that you can plan something with any business over email, and be surprised with the results on the positive side. They both felt like friends we had known for some time as they are easy going and wonderful to work with. Brian puts everyone at ease and brings a light nature to the ceremony despite his formal and professional appearance. His wife Heidi did a great job with our photos, both on the day itself with the shooting and the finished product as well. And ours was an outdoor wedding which can always be trickier to execute well. I wholeheartedly would recommend both of them for your wed... Read more

  • We had our vow renewal ceremony at Carmel River State Beach recently. Everything was perfect (except the light drizzle!). Brian was awesome through the whole planning process. He always responded to my emails and had an answer for every question I had. I even had to change the date and it was possible. Every detail was just as promised, or better. Brian is very personable, and his wife Heidi was so great to work with as our photographer. I highly recommend them!

  • Perfect! Our wedding ceremony was everything my husband and I could ever imagine it would be. We are so grateful to Brian and Heidi. They both were very helpful with the process of our wedding and made everything go very smoothly. It was a pleasure to have used the services for our wedding. They both have a great passion for what they do and they have the best upbeat personalities you'll ever find. Brian did an amazing job marrying us and Heidi did an awesome job with the photography! We got married on Carmel River State Beach and it all was stress free, affordable and the set up was very beautiful. If your getting married, I would highly recommend Weddings In Monterey! My husband and I have the greatest memories of our wedding day because of them. Thank you Brian & Heidi!

  • My husband and I loved every minute working with a Brian, and his wife, Heidi throughout the course of our wedding planning leading all the way up to the ceremony and after the fact! They were both extremely fast to respond to the questions we had, and also were helpful when making recommendations! Both are extremely courteous and always had our best interest in mind. At the end, we didn't just gain their services we also gained their friendship! Overall we had an amazing experience working with Weddings in Monterey and they helped ensure our big day was nothing short of perfect!

  • Brian was so responsive and very easy to talk to. He made our day so special and unforgettable. He captured our story very well so the ceremony was very personal and perfect. It was a pleasure to have him officiate our ceremony. The location was perfect. The videographer he recommended captured everything perfectly and although Heidi was photographing another wedding that same day, the associate photographer Brian had in her place was great. Thank you so much for making our day so special Brian! -Brandy and Clinton Stewart 6/24/17 at Stewart's Cove

  • We used weddings in Monterey for our ceremony last week and it was an absolute dream come true! The location was breathtaking, the ceremony was beautiful, just every single thing perfect. My guests couldn't stop talking about how romantic and beautiful everything was! I would highly recommend weddings in Monterey to anyone looking to have a beautiful destination wedding. Brian was a pleasure to work with. From the first email I sent inquiring about a destination wedding to the very last email, Brian was always prompt to respond, very professional, and easy to talk to. Upon meeting him for our rehearsal he let us make any changes we needed to our ceremony, asked if there was anything else we'd like done for our special day and was just so friendly. His wife Heidi who is the photographer, was also a joy to work with! She was so easygoing and just made us feel so comfortable having our photos taken. I can't wait to see the photos! Thank you to Brian and Heidi for making our day unforgetta... Read more

  • We hired Brian and Heidi for our destination wedding in Carmel, and are so glad we did! Even before they were hired, Brian was super responsive by email. He helped us throughout our planning, answering all our questions and providing detailed advice on everything from restaurant venues and best beach locations. His service was superb, personal and thoughtful and he was very engaged. We in so many ways could not have done it without him. His wife, Heidi, who we met at the service, and took our photos (part of the package) was friendly, and a great photographer. We just got our pictures, and they turned out great. While it was an overcast day, everyone looks amazing and well lit.

  • Brian was very easy to work with, from the flowers to photographer, he organized it all so we didn't worry about a thing! Our small ceremony was fun and personable. During the whole process, he was easy to get in contact with, and always answered any questions in a timely matter. His recommendations for restaurants, salons and venues were spot on... He was very accommodating and helpful when we decided to changed venues at the last minute. We highly recommend Brian for a beautiful worry free wedding...

  • My wife and I did not have much time to plan a big wedding, nor could we afford one. However, we both shared a mutual vision of a ceremony overlooking the ocean. After a little research, we discovered Brian and Heidi's intimate, beautiful wedding packages....they were perfect! From day one, Brian remained in constant contact with me, answering all my questions and connecting me with every vendor in the Monterey area. My wife and I appreciated his professionalism, artistic flair, and Heidi's fantastic photography! For such an affordable price, I couldn't believe all that was included in their services. Thank you both for making our special day so memorable! I would definitely recommend Weddings In Monterey! :)

  • Brian and Heidi were a great husband wife/ officiant photographer team who made our special day all that more memorable. Brian was very attentive to our concerns and suggestions leading up to the ceremony. He helped us select a very private yet stunningly beautiful outdoor location likely only known to locals within our budget. Heidi was a highly skilled and personable photographer who captured the great moments during our ceremony and guided us through the "photoshoot". Both were very professional, punctual and responsive. Would highly recommend to any couples looking to tie the knot in the Monterey area.

  • We couldn't have asked for a better team. Brian handled most of our correspondence and did so with knowledge and professionalism. He did a great job with the ceremony, sprinkling in a few personal details but not going overboard and pretending like he was an old friend. He was very accommodating with our many questions about Monterey locations and made helpful suggestions about things like a videographer and backup location in case of rain. Heidi was an excellent photographer. She and her assistant were active and made good use of their time. The photos look wonderful.

  • We used Brian and Heidi for our wedding in Carmel and couldn't be happier with our choice. Brian was so helpful through the process, and made our wedding ceremony very special. He truly captured our relationship and love for each other in what he wrote for the ceremony. Heidi was a pro with the photos, very creative and made us feel so comfortable. They are a great team who's demeanor and professionalism made this a stress free event and a lot of fun. I highly recommend them, they are simply the best!

  • I was impressed by Brian at our first contact. He responded in a timely manner and was very kind and professional throughout the entire planning. I should mention very down to earth with a great personality. As promised, he allowed for unlimited questions/emails and helped guide us during the decision making. He helped provide everything we needed from the location, flowers and photography. His wife Heidi, who does the photography, was also very kind and professional. She came prepared, was patient, and took all requested photos, plus some. We had a few scares the week prior to the wedding due to weather (recent storms, things out of anyone's control), but Brian did a good job at keeping us informed with weather updates, etc. Unfortunately, we were not able to marry at the beach initially chosen in Carmel. However, I have no regrets because the replacement chosen by Brian was breath taking, and what I had envisioned all along. My most favorite part and memory will always be B... Read more
