Summer Lover

SUMMER, is my favorite time of the year. The part I love the most about summer is the warm summer nights having dinner outside and really enjoying time with the people I love the most, my husband, dogs and family. My dogs love me during the summer because I actually take them for walks after I get home from work and they love our summer strolls. Living in California is an added bonus in my opinion you can go to the Mountains, the beach or the dessert the choice is yours, there is so much to do. This summer my husband and I decided we are going to try a different restaurant or entertainment place once a week and just date our city, get out there and try something new. This is a stretch for me I am a creature of habit, dinner and movie, what else is there to do after 11 years of marriage! We have discovered that there is a lot to do. I’m excited about this new adventure. We are starting this Friday and we are going to Pala Casino with another couple (I’ve never been there before). I will let you know how it goes. So what are you doing this summer? Whatever you do, don’t forget to I have fun and celebrate being engaged!! Here are some Summer Date Ideas from Platinum Lining Events: Baseball Games – Most guys out there just LOVE summer for one reason… BASEBALL! Surprise your honey with tickets to see his favorite team play baseball. What a fun idea for a date… just watch out for those foul...

I will begin with sharing some of my most memorable moments. It’s been a busy, busy summer; obviously I haven’t posted since May. I have so much to say but instead of giving you a play by play I’m just going to give you a few Rewinds and Recaps….. more to come! Sybelle and Rudy are a great couple. They were actually already married so this was the fun celebration with family and friends with a renewal of vows! The theme was Retro-Vintage with a splash of Hawaiian to celebrate the bride’s heritage. The Ceremony took place on the Fairgrounds In-Field (they were the first in history to have a wedding in this location). The ceremony had the Hawaiian them including a traditional Hawaiian welcome. Guest entered the ceremony through a long underground tunnel and exited through that same tunnel greeted by the Charter Oaks High School Marching band (the bride and grooms former high school) and walked the bride, groom and their entire guest to the cocktail hour at the Avalon. They even hired an onsite day care company that was in a separate room to take care of the guests children’s while they enjoyed the party. The Reception was completely a mix of Retro/Vintage with ever table mirrored with feathers and black and white décor/linens. They had a real vintage...
