With Arizona temperatures rising, Liz and I were thrilled to set off for San Francisco to attend a friends wedding. However, we didn’t realize that once we got off the plane that the temperature would be half of what it was when we left. That’s right. Half.
Liz found us an incredible room at Casa Linda Hotel. Central to everything and decently priced. But the best part is the view from the room!
We got in fairly late our first night and met some of Liz’s friends for drinks. Somehow, we ended up at Pandora’s karaoke bar, a small place located in the tenderloin, a slightly questionable part of town. There weren’t a ton of people there which is probably a good thing. We weren’t quiet. We danced a lot. And made fun of ourselves.
We started Friday morning with a breakfast at Kate’s kitchen. If you go to San Francisco, I cannot recommend this place enough! They serve big plates of eggs and hash brown and sausage. They have fresh made juice and my favorite part…. gluten free buiscuits!! Can you say food coma?
The rest of Friday consisted of a wine tour in Sonoma. Our friends that would be getting married planned a giant three day party that they happened to have a ceremony in the middle of. They rented two tour buses, served mimosas and took us to two wineries. Many hours later we were dropped off for dinner. It was such a fun way for the friends and families to get to know eachother before the wedding.
The wedding itself was beautiful! It was held at the Palace of Fine Arts and consisted of a short but sweet ceremony then a ride to the reception on two trolley cars. We stopped to take photos at the Golden Gate Bridge on the way.
