One of Jared's former coworkers and good friends, Karen, invited us to her destination wedding about a year ago (to Carmel, CA). At first, I thought we probably wouldn't go, but then I realized it would be a lot of fun and we made it happen. Brian and Tashina, our amazing friends, told us they would watch the kids. We left Friday night and Saturday we spent the day in Monterey before the wedding. We walked around a lot and ate some really great food right by the ocean.
Before the ceremony, there was a cocktail hour. I cant remember all the food they served, but it was all delish!
They were married right at the edge of these cliffs with the most spectacular view. The whole thing was breathtaking, even though it was cold and foggy.
If you want to see some of the pictures their photographer took, here is the link--you really should peek at them. They had an amazing photographer. I wish I had her skills!
After the ceremony, we had dinner in Carmel. Um, dinner was amazing!
The next day our flight left later, so we drove around Carmel. We did the 17 mile drive--they say it is one of the most scenic drives in the world...right through pebble beach...it was really pretty. The houses on that drive are unbelievable...Oh, to be super, duper rich. After that, we had lunch and drove back to San Jose where we caught our flight and got back home to the kids.
