As a photographer, there aren’t many things more rewarding than capturing the pure joy and love shared between a couple on their wedding day. On a moody January afternoon, we had the pleasure of photographing Molly and Brady’s beautiful wedding at The Barns at Cooper Molera in Monterey, CA. Despite a forecast that threatened rain all day, the weather held out just long enough to create the perfect coastal atmosphere for their big day.

The Barns at Cooper Molera – A Monterey, CA venue

The Barns at Cooper Molera provided an absolutely stunning backdrop for Molly and Brady’s wedding. Nestled in the heart of Monterey, this historic venue exudes rustic charm and elegance. This venue includes a stunning barn with a beautiful bridal suite and pairs so well with the historic garden that seems to always be in full bloom. The ceremony and reception included dramatic January skies adding a touch of drama to the already breathtaking surroundings.

Dining and Celebration

As a wedding vendor, one of my favorite aspects of this venue is the dining experience. The Barns at Cooper Molera offers an exquisite culinary experience that leaves a lasting impression on guests. Molly and Brady’s reception was a perfect blend of fun and heartfelt moments, filled with laughter, dancing, and absolutely delicious food.

A Personal Connection

Photographing at The Barns at Cooper Molera holds a special place in my heart, as my husband and I got married at this very venue in July of 2021. Our wedding day was a dream come true, and since then, I’ve cherished the opportunity to document other love stories at this incredible location. The connection to the venue adds an extra layer of passion and care to each photograph I take.

Highlights of Getting Married in Monterey

Monterey is a wonderful destination for weddings, offering a variety of activities and attractions for guests to enjoy. From boutique shopping and world-class dining to exploring the breathtaking coastline and visiting the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, there’s something for everyone. Guests can wander through Cannery Row, enjoy a wine tasting tour in Carmel Valley, or simply relax on the beautiful beaches.
