Our Wedding

Hi Y'all!

Thanks for taking the time to visit our wedding page -- we're so excited to share our special day with you + want to make sure that you have all the information you need to get your behinds to Big Sur on Friday, August 1st 2014.  We'll periodically post updates to this page so stay in the loop by visiting every now and then before the big day.  

We wanted to send out our save the dates on the early side because we'd like to encourage you to book lodging in Big Sur as soon as you know you can attend.  August is a busy time of year for Big Sur + we want to make sure you can find a suitable place to stay or camp in this beautiful area.  Big Sur is one of the most magical places and with Kentucky wanting to get "married on a mountain" and with it being one of Christina's most favorite of places in the country it was the obvious choice for our matrimony.  

With Love, 

Christina + Chris (Kentucky) 


Disclaimer: Big Sur is one of those very special places where people go to escape the chaos of the city + revel in the beauty of nature.  That being said, many of the innkeepers at Big Sur prefer not to host large groups + we were unable to secure a block of rooms at one place in particular.  

There are so many options if you're feeling adventurous beyond the inns + hotels including yurts, campsites, cabins + private homes and we've tried our best to bring you a comprehensive list below.  We've also listed a few choices in Carmel Valley (located 30 miles north of Big Sur) as we've arranged to have a shuttle driver for a limited number of folks who would prefer to stay in a more populated area.  If you're interested in reserving a spot on the shuttle, please contact Christina by e-mail at christina.zentmyer@gmail.com
