wedding weekend in Sonoma

As you guys know I have been MIA!  Last weekend we went to Sonoma for a wedding and had some friends visiting.  It was busy, but so much fun!

When we got to Sonoma on Friday we went to a brewery and did some beer tasting




The beer was good, but we had the worst waitress.  She would just walk away while we were talking to her (among other strange behaviors)


Luckily we had good service at dinner.  This is my new favorite drink- champagne with a splash of St. Germaine! yum!

Lindsay, me and the boys went wine tasting before the wedding


We tasted port from this little port sipper! Never seen such a thing before, but it was fun!

The winery had a big "yard."  Lindsay and I lounged while the guys played horseshoes and boche ball.

This is the second winery we went to (and my future home!) haha isn't it gorgeous?!


We also stopped at a farm stand and I got some awesome lemons, tomatoes, peaches and plums!


The wedding ceremony was outside and the reception was in a cool wine room, lined floor to ceiling with wine barrels.



The bride made this cool wall for everyone to pose in.


How cool is this room!?
Sunday we had brunch and yet again had awful service.  We had this strange old man waiter that acted like he was on something.  Very bizzare.  I don't think Sonomians like us!

When we got back to the city it was actually sunny so we went to Golden Gate Park with friends and the dogs and played frisbee golf.  Kind of a slow, boring game if you ask me, but the park was pretty and the girls love to run!










We had a big group dinner with 15 of our friends on Monday night and Cory and Lindsay stayed with us.  It was SOO great to see them and catch up.  We went from seeing them almost daily to not at all for 6 months.  Luckily we will see them in 3 weeks for another wedding and then a week after that in Montana!
