Deja Vu

Song - Going to the Chapel of Love by the Dixie Cups

Mr. B and I attended a wedding on Sunday and it happened to be at the same venue where we were married - Hacienda de las Flores in Moraga almost 36 years ago!

They had classical pre-wedding music. 

Sarah & John said their vows in the exact location where we exchanged our vows.  The bride wore a beautiful long gown that was laced up the back and the groom wore khaki's & a plaid shirt. The whole wedding had a casual elegance to it.  Very welcoming!

They had a food truck serving delicious Mexican-Asian fusion food and a mimosa bar.

The stone bench cut into the garden wall was still where I remembered it.

 My niece Katie and my brother Tim taking a little wedding break in 1979 on that same bench!

They used their family's antique saber to cut their cake with. Apparently all members of the family have used that saber for weddings for multiple generations.

In the end, it's all about family, friends, dessert and being comfy!  This is the groom's daughter, Bella.

And in the end all you need is LOVE!
