California Dreamin’

I went to Vegas for the stagette, which was a raucous good time, then a month and a half flew by and it was time for the wedding! My husband and I had originally talked about taking a two week California tour, but ultimately Ryan’s work was too crazy to go at all so my darling Erin came with me for a whirlwind California girls trip! We left Edmonton at 6 am and while I hardly slept, my adrenaline was keeping me energized along with a few road pops (plane pops?)!

We arrived in San Francisco and headed straight for Paso Robles, in order for me to make it to the rehearsal on time we didn’t have any time for San Francisco stops on the way out. The landscape from San Fran to Paso reminded me so much of British Columbia, we even stopped at a fruit stand just like the many you’ll see dotting the roads on long B.C. road trips.

We made it just in time for the rehearsal, then the bride and groom hosted a welcome party for all the guests at Graveyard Vineyards. It was beautiful there, a great way to meet people and the wine was flowing!

I had many, many glasses of wine so going to breakfast the next morning I really had to nurse the coffee and water. We went to a little bistro called Panolivo in quaint downtown Paso Robles.

It was soon time to head over for the wedding at Hammersky Vineyard. Such a gorgeous setting, I can see why they love it so much. The sky was very threatening all morning and early afternoon but by the time the ceremony began it was perfect.

The ceremony went off without a hitch and was followed by a fab cocktail hour with appetizers and signature drinks, this was a perfect pinterest wedding! The was amazing food for the outdoor reception and a barn dance. It was picturesque venue to say the least and a stunning and joy filled wedding!
