Have you been to Big Sur? If not, please go. If you have, I’m sure you’re already planning another trip. Don’t miss Garrapata State Park, and be sure to do the Soberanes hike. Big Sur is unquestionably one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Mason Jenning’s “Califonia” and “Big Sur” are must-hear songs as you drive the winding coastal highway with the windows rolled down. Here are a few highlights from a recent journey along the ocean – I was especially enamored this trip with the Dr. Seuss trees and ethereal fog.
Ryan & Deirdra’s Wine Country Wedding
Ryan and Deirdra wed in the hills of wine country in California. Healdsburg Country Gardens has a big, old oak tree where they said their vows (and made me tear up). This stunning couple knows how to host a party, with a weekend of events that included a bicycle wine tour in the Russian River Valley and two relaxing nights of wine and great food leading up to the big event. I loved every detail of the wedding day, from the table place cards strung in rows to the paper lanterns adorning the trees and tables. But most of all I loved watching Ryan and Deirdra, two truly amazing people, on one of the happiest days of their lives. Aren’t they shining?
