This last weekend the hubs and I took a road trip down to Santa Ynez, CA for our dear friend’s wedding. We had an absolute blast with a stop in Paso Robles on the way there and back, a full on surprise Danish festival, a real deal cowboy bar and a small taste of wine country. Here are a few pics of our adventure.
Pit stop in Paso Robles at Artisan to sample the local zin and bubbles
Ate a salad from the garden with our drinks and took the wood fired pizza to go, fennel sausage with herbs
The venue…too bad it’s not very pretty
Pig roast cowboy themed rehearsal was an absolute blast
One hell of a cheese station
My very own real life cowboy
Little did we know the town is an original Danish settlement and it happened to be the annual festival, beer and dancing all day
Abelskivers…traditional Danish pastries
The beautiful couple
Pop Rocks! And man did they rock!!!
One last stop on our way back home, this specialty oil and vinegar store was right up my alley
Probably the best favor I’ve ever received at a wedding, olive oil made from the trees as you enter the venue, I’ve already put it to good use
