Wedding at Mar Vista Cottages

This October we were lucky enough to book another fall wedding at one of our favorite Mendocino Coast destinations the Mar Vista Cottages at Anchor Bay.  Our Bride, Judy, was all over the DIY details and of course the grounds at Mar Vista are always beautiful.  A close knit group of friends and family sat on hay bails while Judy and Greg exchanged vows.  After the ceremony wedding guests mingled in and around the glass house for some bluegrass music and local faire provided by Trinks Cafe of Gualala.  To top it all off guests were treated to a desert table of eclairs, macaroons, cookies, and more by Franny's Cup and Saucer.  As always Renata did a fantastic job hosting and we all had a great time!
