Our Road Trip to Monterey

This past weekend we had a zest first!! Chanda and I attended a wedding, YEP, that’s right. ATTENDED. There was no Tri Tip to BBQ or dresses to pin or tables to set, we simply got dolled up and grabbed a glass of champagne and enjoyed. Crazy! Our dear friend Melissa recently met her sweetie and love of her life, Nick, and we were ready to celebrate!! Boy were they adorable, we were babies balling at their heartfelt vows. The venue was not too shabby either, we loved the gorgeous views at Corral De Tierra Country Club. It was a great breathe of fresh air to take with the hubbies before we plunge into a busy wedding season, so we were sure to relax a little at the lovely Casa De Munras.

Let’s start with a little tour of our awesome hotel, we would be the suckers that pick a hotel that is known for their garden. Plant nerds unite 🙂

We couldn’t decide which we loved more, the rose garden at the pool or awesome fire pit??OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And now for the wedding- yayyyy!

We love when we get to throw the dansko shoes and apron aside and get dolled up for the evening. We both rocked some classic and  fun looks….

I loved the leopard print details, had to bring them out with red lips and my clutch for the night…

Along with some sassy black heels, I must applaud myself for wearing these the entire wedding- it’s tough work!
