It won't be long now
A few weeks ago, Chris and I revisited the camp where we will host all things wedding come July. Even our memory of it did not do it justice. It's a place that is so naturally beautiful I couldn't help but take a deep breath and enjoy just being a part of the space.
After perusing the grounds once more, we met with the chef and talked about the menu. My smile as well as our appetites got bigger and bigger as we talked about seasonal produce, antipasta, sun-dried tomato stuffed chicken, pastas that pop with flavor and color, and a french toast brunch among other nosh that had the California foodie in me beaming.
We then had the pleasure of taking up residence in a cabin nestled high up in the tree tops. In July, we'll have the entire facility and grounds exclusively and our guests will stay in these cabins, which are all attached with Ewok village-like pathways. Later, we spent the evening reading and relaxing and imagining how fun the weekend will be with all our guests. Waking up to the view of the giant Sequoia trees and the sound of a babbling stream wasn't too shabby either.
Below is a video tour of both the cabins and the lodge where we will host our reception. We're still saving plenty of surprises but we hope this will get you pumped for the big weekend.
I used to sit in the cube behind you. Then I didn't. And then we fell in love.
