Weekend Wedding in Monterey, California

I was vastly appreciative to my niece for choosing to have her wedding in Monterey, California.

While I doubt my wishes were high on her list in decision making, I was nonetheless both thrilled to able to share this day with her and enjoy such a picturesque place. While this was not my first time in Monterey (Mini Break in Monterey), it was my first time in the fall and with my family.  We were blessed with the perfect Monterey weekend.
