Big Sur Weekend

A few weekends ago we went to Big Sur for a friend's wedding.  If you haven't travelled to this part of California, you are missing out!  It's a region located off the central coast of California where the mountains meet the ocean. Let me tell you, the views are absolutely stunning.  It was my first time actually staying overnight and I believe me, I soaked up every second.  My husband and I were able to take this trip without kids (which is rare, thank you to my mom & sister)!
Forgoing the typical hotel stay, we opted to stay in a vintage airstream trailer.   The trailers were tucked in the woods on a very private piece of the mountain side.   Ours had been completely restored for the full "glamping" experience.
Our little trailer for the weekend.  
Friday evening we ate at a new local restaurant- Glen Oaks Roadhouse, run by Chef Matt Glazer. I was impressed with the interiors and California infused Cajun food was delightful!

Saturday- The beautiful couple were married at Pfiffer State Park.  The image below was taken by Brittany Esther Photography as Colette's best friend escorted her towards the ceremony site.  It feels so magical there, I can't wait to see more wedding images!

Just married!

After the ceremony, the wedding reception followed at Big Sur Bakery.  The ambiance & food was perfection!

As a farewell send off to the bride & groom we said good-byes Sunday morning at Cafe Kevah.  The Views, the views.... Photos hardly do it justice.



I can hardly wait to go back!  We didn't have enough time to do half of what we wanted;  hiking, exploring caves, beaches & Henry Miller library.  I've driven through Big Sur many times as a kid, it was a treat to come back and really spend time here.
Def a Must See spot in California!
