So I have finally come down from my California high and am able to write this post without missing it like crazy! I was lucky enough to accompany my boyfriend to one of his good friends wedding out in Healdsburg, CA, which is just north of Santa Rosa and absolutely STUNNING! Over the past few years it has undergone some stylish transformations bringing in chic hotels, upscale spas, and hip restaurants as well as some great shopping. I’ve spent some time out in Cali for work but that was in the heart of LA and nothing compared to what you see in wine country. I mean how can you not love a place dubbed “wine country”? The downtown of Healdsburg is a walkable distance and has over 30 wine tasting rooms! If Coop’s friends keep picking these epic places to have their weddings I think I’ll keep him around. JUST KIDDING! Sharing a few of my favorite spots we were able to explore during our mini vacation:)
I’ll take one of those chandeliers please.

Barndiva held the most beautiful rehearsal dinner and welcome party for the even more beautiful couple. Not only was the food so delicious, but the photo worthy opportunities were endless!
The ceremony and reception took place at Chalk Hill Estate and I can honestly say that this place has landed itself on the top 10 most beautiful places I have ever seen.
Noble Folk Ice Cream & Pie Bar (Yes, ice cream and pie bar. You read that right)
The Paul Mahder Gallery has the LARGEST moss wall in the United States!
We were able to spend a little time in San Fran before our flight home and what better way to spend it then with tacos and margs! We stopped at Flores, right off of Union Street and not only is the atmosphere and esthetic of the restaurant alluring, the food is DELICIOUS!
We spent three days in Cali and did ALL of this, I can’t wait to go back for a longer and explore a whole lot more!
