A week ago today, Scotty and I left Chautauqua and made our way to San Luis Obispo, CA. We had had a wonderful time in Chautauqua – hanging out with family, enjoying a special visit from cousins Annie and Laura, grilling, sailing, and generally unplugging. I have pretty much dropped my email for the past two weeks and it’s been wonderful – although if you’ve sent me an email and I haven’t responded, I will do that soon. Sorry for the delay. Anyway, it all added up to a fantastic time in NY.
Following the downtime we were ready for a full-throttle onslaught of fun and activity when we arrived in California. My little brother Josh and his fiancé Grace (remember this from last November?) got married on Saturday and it was beautiful, fun, joyous, and perfect. The whole weekend was perfect – from the rehearsal dinner, to the backyard reception with dinner and dancing. Josh and Grace were surrounded by their favorite people and everyone pitched in to create a beautiful celebration. I can’t wait to see the official photographs because the photographers seemed stellar! In the mean time, here’s some pics of all the prep.
As I was busy with flowers, I have to give full photographic credit to my little sister Tot! She took nearly all these pictures and I think she did a great job. At this point we’d all done just about everything we could and it was time to rehearse! So people quickly showered and it was off to the races. The rehearsal dinner was at a gorgeous winery and it was a fantastic evening.
It was such a fun day of prep and evening of celebration! This is the third wedding in my family and it’s starting to feel like we’re getting this thing down.
