Yosemite is a beautiful place to visit. I am not a camping girl, nor have I ever been... but my fiance convinced me to go with him. I am so glad I went! Yosemite is truly breathtaking. However, I wouldn't have liked it so much without the plush amenities of the Ahwahnee Hotel. It was really nice to spend the day outdoors, hiking, touring the park, having outdoor picnics... however, it was soooo much nicer to come home at night to the Ahwahnee. Once we walked through the doors, we forgot we were "camping". The food is delicious and the hotel is superb. If you're not a "camper" but want to see Yosemite (which I highly recommend) this is the way to go!

The Westlake Village is amazing... you seriously forget you're somewhere in Southern California. The grounds are beautiful, and I adore the European style. The lobby is elegant, warm and cozy. The rooms are gorgeous and a good size. We love to get away here every once in a while. I would move here if I could afford it.
I love Nordstrom! They seriously have the best customer service, ever!!! We bought our flower girl's dresses from the Nordstrom in South Coast Plaza. One of the dresses didn't fit quite right, so the sales associate helped us locate the right size at another Nordstrom and had it transferred over! You may pay a little bit more - but it is so worth it!

We love this restaurant, and its a really fun location on Saturday nights. We celebrated my fiance's 30th birthday here in September. The staff reserved a table near the band, and the service was wonderful. They also allowed me to cut the birthday cake so I didn't have to be a cake cutting fee!!!
While we were there, there was also a small wedding recpetion going on two tables down.They seemed like they were having fun, and weren't bothered by the noise and other guests looking over at their table. If you're looking for a quiet, private location for your wedding reception...probably not the best place. Other than that, I highly recommend it. A+

The minute I stepped into the store, I really liked Mariposa Boutique. The staff was friendly, and not pushy... like other bridal salons. I had purchased my bridesmaid dress for my friend's wedding last year at Mariposa, so naturally when it was my turn, I brought my girls here. So far so good...

We are using Classic for all of our rentals. Our wedding is being held at my aunt's house in Laguna Beach, so everything needs to be rented. So far, so good... They aren't the cheapest rental company around, however they do have a really good selection.

After seeing the movie Because I Said So, I fell in love with Diane Keaton's birthday cake. It was so perfect! Without even tasting their cakes, I ordered a $200 baby shower cake for my best friend. The design was loosely based on some pictures off their website and Diane Keaton's birthday cake. I was nervous, ordering such an important and expensive cake from a bakery I had never tried before.
Needless to say, they did not disappoint. The cake was gorgeous and delicious. The top tier was red velvet, and the bottom tier was marble with a cookies & cream filling. Everyone had two slices of cake and kept raving about how great it was.
