photos from this trip
as of yesterday, we have officially booked our wedding venue! it is my absolute dream venue in santa barbara and the perfect combination of rustic, woodsy, coastal, and romantic. we’ve never even seen it in person but i am completely and totally obsessed with it. i’m getting so giddy just typing this! our date is pretty inflexible due to reis’ med school schedule so that made it rather difficult when searching for venues. when i originally e-mailed our venue, they said they were booked the whole month of november. so the search continued. then about a week later, they e-mailed me saying they had accidentally overlooked the schedule and our date was actually available!! meant. to. be. anyways, i’m ecstatic. so is reis. we just show it differently (i.e. i text all of my best friends immediately with multiple exclamation points (!!!) and he just says “that’s awesome.”) oh, i love him.
thanks so much mom and dad for going to check it out AND for being our wedding planners AND for dealing with all the “fun” stuff like contracts. i love you.
