I was one of the very lucky few who got to experience an absolutely STUNNING wedding this weekend in the Central Coast California town of Paso Robles. (Pass-oh Roh-bulls. Despite the fact that every town in California has a Spanish name, nothing is pronounced correctly.)
Because all of our friends would be heading up for the shindig, our usual dog sitters wouldn’t be available. Thanks to HomeAway.com, I found a fabulous guest house on a horse farm that welcomed our pooches, and wasn’t that far from the wedding location in the nearby town of Atascadero.
Seriously– it is an unbelievably beautiful area. All the horse ranches, cattle ranches– even llamas! Most of California is this sort of desert-y hill territory– if you’ve only ever seen LA, you’re really missing out.
Even Margo was having fun. This is fluffydog concentrating VERY hard on a nearby rabbit.
The perfect morning walk.
Our friends also put on one HELL of a wedding. It was a blast– filled with great food, lots of love, and all the adorable touches you really want in a wedding. Have you ever been to a wedding where you can tell the couple is trying really hard not to yell, “THIS IS SO AWESOME!!”? This was that kind of wedding.
My handsome fiance.
The reception site was at the top of a hill, with beautiful mature trees shading us from the sun. Breathtaking.
But not as gorgeous as the bride.
