My parents drove out the week before the wedding, but the weekend really began on Wednesday. My family started to arrive from Iowa so we hosted a little barbecue for everyone already there. On Thursday, we went to Capitola to hit the beach. That night was my bachelorette party. Woot Woot! Friday was a spa day with all of my girls. Then my BIL hosted a cocktail hour. It was so neat to see my great aunt playing pool with my BIL - and beat him! That night we had the rehearsal in the courtyard of Pruneridge Plaza Hotel (where most of the party was staying) and the rehearsal dinner at Buca di Beppo. My MOH has put together a slide show with pictures of us and with our bridal party for that night. She and my DOC (also a friend) stayed the night. I could barely sleep!
Saturday started out perfectly. My DOC surprised us with bagels and we headed down to the ceremony. Other than getting caught in festival traffic on the way, it went off as planned. We had lunch at the site and then started preparing! I thought I would be stressed, but I was just so excited and wanted to get it moving! I was so thankful when I was able to start walking down the aisle and start my life with my DH.
