We rented a house in Santa Barbara with 2 other couples for a weekend wedding of our friends. We had a blast. It is amazing how much fun getting away from it all for a weekend can be - even when the weather doesn't cooperate!
We went to the beach (bundled in fleece), wandered in and out of antique shops, and checked out the shopping and eating on the main drag - with the wedding as the highlight of the trip. It was breathtaking in the beautiful Santa Barbara hills.
We ended up drining a lot of fantastic, local wine with our close friends that trip and one of my favorite photos is of the group on the balcony.
There is really something about a destination wedding (even if it's just a few hours away like Santa Barbara is for us) that makes for a very special trip together. Even if you're already married to the love of your life.
