Saturday in California was all about the reason we came:
I want to make a little plug for the Bay Bridge.
I feel like it gets stuck in the Golden Gate's shadow all the time.
No, its not the pretty red-orange color.
And yes, it does lead to Oakland (yikes) instead of a beautiful boat town.
But it is still a good looking bridge!
Anyways, enough about that.
We left San Francisco and took the short 1.5 hour drive to Sacramento and got there just in time for a late lunch.
We ate yummy pizza, browsed some antique stores, and walked around the beautiful downtown area.
The weather and the scenery were completely perfect.
Then, it was on to the wedding.
It has been such a long time since we have seen all of Michael's friends.
The last time we saw Nate, Michael and I were newlyweds living in Oklahoma!
Needless to say, we had such a great time catching up with everyone!
^^Michael and some of his best college friends
^^Words With Friends-ers for life!
We were most happy to see Nate!
He is such a great guy, and was a wonderful friend and roommate to Michael.
We have missed him, and were so excited to meet his bride.
Their wedding was absolutely beautiful.
And so much fun!
From the jokes told by Nate's dad during the ceremony,
to the cute bundt cupcakes (I might have eaten 4)
to dancing and laughing with friends - it was the perfect night!
Of course, it helps when you have the perfect date.
^^Money dancing with the groom
^^More money dancing with the groom
^^The whole OC group at the wedding!
One thing that Nate's Dad kept going on about was how great it is that we are all still friends,
and that we would travel so far for a wedding.
Its just another reason that I am so thankful for my time at OC!
It blessed me with so many things, but most of all, friendships that last a lifetime.
