Jack London State Park, Glen Ellen

I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to drive to the Sonoma Valley–blue skies, a crystal clear view of Alcatraz, and hundreds of sail boats in the Marina, and that was just crossing the Golden Gate!  Yesterday, I went to a wedding at Jack London State Park located in Glen Ellen–a truly spectacular venue.  Flanked by a grove of eucalyptus trees, grape vines, and oak trees, is an old winery ruin situated perfectly in the middle.  The wedding was beautiful, and my friend made a gorgeous bride.  You could truly feel everyone’s excitement for the union of this loving couple.  Congrats, Ali and Eric!

Portland Wedding

I went to my good friend Erin’s backyard wedding in Portland this weekend.  Erin looked gorgeous as always and her wedding was so intimate and fun.  Her husband Ian owns Coco Donuts, so their whole house smelled of sweet, delicious fried goodness.  As party favors, they gave out donuts and whole coffee beans roasted by the groom!  So clever.  I had trouble pulling myself away from the flowers by Espe Floral + Foliage.  Apparently I didn’t know a peony from a garden rose.  Rookie mistake.  The florist told me she purchased the garden roses on Monday and babysat them all week.  I really need to learn what goes into babysitting flowers, because my orchid died over the weekend.

I stepped aside once the photographer arrived, so you’ll have to settle for my photos of donuts and flowers.
