Going to the Chapel

The best club in San Diego on Saturday night hands down was the bayview room at Mission Village. But before that happened, this did:

KP is a good friend from college. She is one of my most fun-loving friends—the girl with a big heart who can’t help but make every room she walks into more exciting. The best part is she found a guy who only adds to it.

What I loved about this wedding was how you could feel the love between the new Mr. and Mrs. and their friends and family around them. I don’t doubt their marriage will be a love-filled, respectful, lifelong commitment. The service had many good reminders about a marriage is all about.

She was the most stunning bride in a dress that was both beautiful and full of personality—just like KP herself.

That night Mr. Davis and I shook our tail feathers with the best of them. This night was food for the soul with my favorite guy, wrapping my hands around his waste, holding him close AND getting low low low low in our apple bottom jeans. Let me tell you, we and the rest of the wedding goers shook it like no other twenty-somethings white people can.

I can’t wait to see the pics from the real photographers. And how much fun is this sneak peak video from Max & Molly Films?

Update: The whole highlights video is even better (hubs and make a brief appearance at 4:36. Dos Eqis, I’ll be waiting by the mailbox for the promo check).

This wedding would have been a blast no matter where it was but, well, it was in San Diego and that makes it that much more awesomer.
The weekend started off right when we arrived at the hotel and were greeted with a bag filled with wine and chocolates plus a pretty schnazzy suite (sometimes a hubs that travels a lot sucks…and then I get free wine). Thank you Hyatt!

Our first night in town we found a dinner cruise out of downtown. The food and scenery were unbelievable. The lack of dancing and completely terrible random music from the dj were awkwardly awesome (love me some Kenny G and Pink in that order).

The next morning, after kicking back with coffee and bagels from Einsteins (only the best bagel shop ever, that sadly hates Iowa apparently), we rented a tandem kayak (via Mission Bay Sportscenter) and paddled around Mission Bay. Absolutely loved this! I highly recommend you do this if you never have the chance. No pics exist (water and cameras don’t mix well) so here is our friend Danny setting up the kayak.
Mission Bay Activities - Kayaking & Beach Cruisers
Afterward we grabbed a couple beach cruisers and biked over to the beach. Thanks to Danny’s recommendation, we stop for lunch at a Mexican place and ordered California burritos. They say it includes “potatoes,” but these are French fries people. Dear arteries: Enjoy!

Can we please bring the beach cruising trend to Cedar Rapids?? It is the best way to spend a Saturday.

This was such a rejuvenating weekend.

Congrats to KP and the new Mr. KP! Thanks for inviting us to be a part of your big day!
