Michelle and I spent a wonderful weekend with her dad’s side of the family down in Monterrey, CA for her cousin’s wedding. The weather was fantastic, the venue beautiful and the company was wonderful. We had a blast. Michelle and I were fortunate enough to be invited to the rehearsal dinner at a historic building/restaurant called Stokes. We sat next to Keet’s Mother’s Twin Brother Bill and his wife Susan and just had a blast. Lots of great food, wine and conversation about their life in Japan, traveling and kids.
The wedding on the following day was in the Memory Garden near the Portola Hotel which was an open atrium with four massive magnolia trees the provided cover and a hanging opportunity for the lights. The service was touching, Erica and Keet were amazing and we got to spend time with our favorite relatives from Santa Cruz including Erica’s Dad and Step-Mom (Ron & Jill Lindsay).
The day after, we had the chance to visit Keet’s parents house in Carmel Valley and thank them for a lovely weekend. The pictures below only tell a portion of the story of the weekend, but wanted to get them online to share.
