Jowling in California!

July 1, 2012

I went to Morgan Hill, California last month for a good friend’s wedding that I was in. Morgan Hill is about 30 minutes south of San Jose and it is very gorgeous with tons of wineries!

Tyler was originally supposed to go with me but we decided it would be best if he stayed home with the furry ones and to save money. He had to work on Saturday anyways.

Can you believe that we’ve been together every single night since we got married in 2008!? It was our first weekend apart. It turned out great anyways since all of my girlfriends (and sorority sisters) were there so it was pretty much a girls’ weekend. I also think Tyler had a blast without me at home. ;)

I love this shot that I got of the bride getting her makeup done. I was secretly trying to be a photographer.

The bride opened a bottle of champagne and guess where the cork went? Not kidding!

The bride & groom had an amazing photobooth (La PhotoBooth) at their wedding. We were pretty much there all night taking pictures.

The picture above was of us jowling (definition: the violent shaking of one’s head side-to-side in order to obtain a photograph of one’s face distorted from the intense side-to-side motion). If you haven’t tried jowling… I highly recommend it! It’s so much fun!

Of course the weekend went by so fast. I wasn’t ready to leave. It was so great seeing all of the girls again after 4+ years of not seeing each other. It sucks that we live all over the country.

    I’m jealous you got to go to California. Sounds like you had lots of fun. It’s neat to be able to share special moments with good friends. I love the color of your bridesmaid dresses. Bet Tyler was glad to have you back home.

    You went to Morgan Hill?! I was born there and lived there until I was 7 years old. I have so many fond memories of that place! What a small world!
