Laduree in Paris

We diligently tried all the best french macarons in Paris, but nothing compared to Laduree! Maybe it was the pastel colors, or the uber cute shop, or the matching ribbons and tissue paper with the Laduree insignia, but nobody does it like Laduree! (A list of our favorite tips for traveling with a camera is included at the end of this blog)

Paris wedding charivari (Shivaree)

In France, the custom of charivari now often includes a drive through the town in a parade of decorated cars with horns blaring.  The older custom was to make noise as the couple left the church or at the home of the newlyweds on their wedding night, but customs change over the years.  This was the couples car for a wedding in Paris .

Everett Family Farm – Farmstand and Event Venue

Photos we took at Everett Family Farm – a little known event venue near Santa Cruz.  The farm is so beautiful in when the persimmon trees have turned orange – a small family wedding would be incredible here in the fall.  They even do flower arrangements for weddings.
