Mr. + Mrs. Zatkulak Downtown Carmel Wedding

Having Maggie and Marcos as one of my couples has been the absolute best! Maggie is such a classic beauty, and she and Marcos are one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever worked with! As I was preparing this blog post, I couldn’t help but want to go back and relive their whole entire day all over again!

Due to Covid, their big celebration is postponed until next summer. Maggie and Marcos didn’t want to wait a whole year to be married though so they kept their wedding date and I’m so glad they did! While this wasn’t the exact day they had originally planned I’d say it turned out to be pretty darn perfect! Sometimes when your plans get turned upside down something even sweeter happens and this was definitely one of those days!

The day started out with the Maggie, Marcos, their families and bridal party all getting ready at the brand new Hotel Carmichael in downtown Carmel! This was such a beautiful setting to start their day! After the sweetest First Looks with Maggie and her bridesmaids and then Maggie, her brothers, and her dad we took a few bridal party portraits in my favorite location… The Carmel Palladium! Then we headed off to their church for them to officially tie the knot! After their classic, beautiful ceremony we were off to take some just married portraits with Maggie and Marcos and man oh man I can’t wait for you to see these! Maggie and Marcos are one of those couples where they are even cuter in between poses, because they can’t take their eyes off of each other or they’re making each other laugh and it’s just a photographer’s dream! It’s so obvious these two are truly best friends and have found their match. You can see that in every single photo! 

Their day ended with the most intimate reception with just their families and a few of their closest friends! They rented out the Sugar Creek Winery in downtown Carmel and it was just perfect! Wine tasting, good food, sweet toasts, lots of laughs and tears, and the sweetest Bride + Groom first dance on the patio surrounded by everyone with sparklers lit! It was truly an unforgettable night that was so fun to capture! 

Maggie and Marcos, what a joy it’s been being your wedding photographer! I’ve loved getting to know you guys all year and getting to capture your love story along the way! Congrats again on the most beautiful day that represented you guys perfectly! Enjoy some of my favorite moments below!
