Bachelorette Party Recap

There are not enough pictures or words to do this entire weekend ANY kind of justice.

So just know that.

On Thursday, the entire party had made their way to Los Angeles and the weather was perfect! Once everyone got their things settled we walked into Downtown Westwood for a late lunch and a trip to the Farmer's Market. The girls wanted to spend as much time outside as possible, so this was the perfect start to our trip.

That night we had friends over to our house for pizza and champagne. We had so much fun telling stories, laughing, dancing, and having fun the way old, dear friends can do.


We all took our drunk selves to bed before midnight so we didn't do too much damage early on!

Friday morning - the real party started. We made bagels and coffee at home and by 11am all of us loaded into three cars and headed up to Santa Barbara. 

We drove straight to a lunch spot on State St. called Blush - per the recommendation of my friend Stacie - and had a great girls lunch outside on the patio. 

After our first round of day drinks, we took to the stores! Santa Barbara has a long strip of great stores, and we all had fun popping in and out of stores, enjoying the day off of work.

At 3, we headed to the Fess Parker Hotel across from the ocean to check in and get ready for our first night.

While we were getting all dolled up, a bellman rang the door with a tray full of my favorite things!

Joel had sent us Champs to get ready and it totally got us all in the mood for a night of fun. He's a good catch, huh?

After a few rounds, we headed out for the night.The first stop on our trek was a wine bar/barrell room called Carr


This tasting room had live music, a beer brewery next door, food trucks outside, and cheese and chocolate pairings set up all around the room. It was like serious paradise. 

After a few drinks, we headed to dinner at 8pm at an Italian restaurant in downtown Santa Barbara.


The bridesmaids had champagne ready for everyone as we sat down, and then I TOTALLY blew my carb free diet. Bread, ravioli, and cupcakes were all consumed at this meal! 



After our amazing dinner, we went home for some yummy cupcakes, more champagne, and a seriously aggressive dance party.


 And this was just the first night!
