Amphitheatre of the Redwoods | Santa Cruz wedding venue

The Amphitheatre of the Redwoods is an exceptional site for a wedding.  The trees provide a sort of natural cathedral for the event, and the location allows for all kinds of unique decorations.  But the best part is that the site is completely yours for two days, so there is no rush to put up decorations and get them down before the next wedding party arrives in a few hours.  You could even have the rehearsal dinner here and stay the night!  This site is truly unusual and perfect for a DIY experience.


Updated carrot salad

carrot salad (1 of 2)

After a trip to the farmer’s market, we made old fashioned carrot salad, but gave it an update.  The homemade mayonnaise with lime and ginger gave it an asian flair, so instead of raisins we topped it with poppy seeds, which looked perfect with the spaghetti cut on the carrots.
