A Bike Ride Through Amsterdam

Jul-22-15  |  Travel







It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.  
-Ernest Hemingway 
 
Thank you Amsterdam for your bustling streets and endless canals...  
Chad and I enjoyed exploring while in the Netherlands for the European Wedding Congress this Spring. Our highlights were navigating the entire city atop a bicycle and hopping on the tram, the Van Gogh Museum, peeking in boutiques in The Nine Streets, brunch at Little Collins, lunch at The Seafood Bar and a beautiful dinner off the beaten path at Wilde Zwijnen.  
See you next time Amsterdam!!

Nestled in the hilltops of the beautiful Carmel Valley the rustic chic Holman Ranch was the setting for Johnny and Joanne's al fresco wedding celebrations. Johnny and Joanne are such a sweet and beautiful couple, you may remember them from their oyster engagement session at Hog Island Oyster Co. It's been such a wonderful journey capturing their love story as it unfolded and their wedding was the pinnacle of it all.

Lobster Bake





'See, he's her lobster!' -Phoebe, FRIENDS 
 
One of my favorite aspects of destination weddings is that they are typically multi day events surrounding the couple being celebrated in a place they love. They allow the couple to create an experience for their closest family and friends sharing what they love most and spending quality time with everyone involved.  
 
Johnny and Joanne gathered their closest family and friends together in Carmel Valley to enjoy an authentic lobster bake as an ode to Johnny's upbringing in New England. Guests from all over the world shared stories over corn on the cob with lobster crackers in hand. It was the perfect way to kick off their wedding celebrations...
