California Getaway! Wedding Wishes and Family Fun!

My cousin Melissa and her fiance planned a fabulous wedding in California and we weren't disappointed.  2 days touring San Fransciso with all my cousins....
the painted ladies (remember "Full House"?)

sauteed in butter and garlic - heaven!
found this on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives!
We did it all!
We ate it all!
Muir Woods Overlook along the coast
heading towards Napa Valley
Muir Woods
Glorious wine county
to Dawn Ranch Lodge along the Russian River
cousins in the wedding, cousins at the wedding
cousins staying in the sweet little cabins,
a lovely wedding amongst the towering trees,
a cocktail hour following the ceremony
a lantern lit reception in the apple orchard,
a family barbecue the following day by the pool
 provided by the bride and groom, walks,
cocktails, dancing, laughter, stories, hugs, kisses
we came from everywhere - NJ, MD,
the bride and groom currently live in Japan
back to San Francisco and home with happy memories
Melissa and James off to a honeymoon in Mexico
