Carmel, Monterey & a Wedding

We had quite the whirlwind of a weekend full of great company, good food, beautiful sites and a storybook wedding!  Here is a quick snapshot of all that we did!

  First things first, I got to have lunch with the darling Michaela!  I loved getting to see her...though we did not get nearly enough time together!  I really need to go back and spend the day in San Jose...LOVED the restaurant we ate at and all the fun people watching...it was great!  I always appreciate the time spent connecting with my bloggy friends in person...it reminds me why I blog and enjoy it!  Michaela has defintiely become a dear friend, both in the blog and real world.  :)

Hubby and I picked up our two best friends who flew in from North Carolina for the wedding...we had dinner in Carmel Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal!  I would recommend Little Napoli if you're ever in the area...amaaaazing!

 We got to go to Pebble Beach and check out the beautiful 18th hole.

 We then headed down to Cannery Row and had dinner overlooking the Monterey Bay...can you spot the planking seal in this picture?!

Hubby ordered the fully loaded Bloody Mary...complete with shrimp!  Yum!

 Next, we headed to the Monterey Aquarium...loved the jelly fish!

And this HUGE sea turtle!

 And even BIGGER sun fish!  Amazing.

Of course...the reason we were all in Monterey...was the wedding!  Loved the florals.

 The blushing bride!

 Hubby and I.

 Gorgeous view at the Pasadera Country Club.

 Lots of great details...there was a postcard theme and these were the little place cards...my talented girlfriend made them...pushing her to start an Etsy shop!  :)

Me & Mer...love her!

Sorry for the photo overload...these are just the ones I snapped on my phone!  :)  It was great to reconnect with old friends and make new ones at the wedding!  Loved all the details of the big day and I know we all had a wonderful time celebrating!

Did you all have a great weekend?!
