the perfect place to say "I do"

We wanted to get married in a location that represented everything we love about California. For us, that meant the Central Coast - rich with rolling, golden hills, old oak trees with stories to tell, sprawling vineyards, and the beautiful and lush landscape along the coast.

Savor every moment

The day of our wedding was truly magical. It was unreal to see our vision come to life in every way possible. Our friends had warned us that the day of the wedding would go by in a flash, but we tried our very best to savor every moment of it.

The Doctor & the Counselor

 Our friends endearingly nicknamed us "The Doctor & the Counselor" and so it felt most appropriate to use our nicknames for the signature drinks. John's drink, "The Doctor," was an Arnold Palmer spiked with bourbon, and my drink, "The Counselor," was a Moscow Mule.
