In case any of you have been wondering why I’ve been a wee bit quiet over the past week or two it’s because, I was putting together a wedding. Mr. Dave Campbell and I threw caution (and the stress of planning and scheduling) to the wind and eloped over the weekend! We were married by candlelight in a wine cave at a Calastoga, CA winery on Friday, the anniversary of the day we met. We walked down the aisle together, to Muse’s song “Blackout” and danced to “Love is a Place” by Metric. We sipped champagne, visited the Beringer Vineyard in Napa Valley and stayed for a couple of days at the lovely, Indian Springs Spa where we indulged in massages and mineral baths. Our witness was the photographer and the ceremony was offciated by the flamboyantly fabulous Rev. Blane (seen below flashing “jazz hands” with me), who managed to personalize the event so much that he even included my love/Dave’s hate for Diet Coke.
After that we headed south to San Francisco where we spent a couple of honeymoon days at the swanky W Hotel while shopping, eating amazing food, hanging out at a pub with a bunch of Irish dudes (seen below with us from L-R: Mick #1, Darren, and Mick #2) and for the first time in years, not even checking e-mail. The whole experience was amazing, romantic and for us, absolutely perfect.
As soon as we can figure out a place to hold it (Texas heat makes venue choices difficult), we’ll throw a celebratory party. We can’t wait!
And that folks, is all she wrote!
