Hearst Castle at Night

Like I blogged about in my post, Fancy Schmancy, my husband and I were recently invited to the Friends of Hearst Castle Enchanting Evening on our anniversary weekend. It was a beautiful black tie dinner by the Neptune Pool. I have been waiting for the professional photos to appear on the website, but in the meantime I thought I’d share a few that we took from my iphone and my husband’s blackberry. Of course, they didn’t turn out to be amazing photos, but you’ll get the point. It was an amazing evening!

The centerpieces were beautiful, even if my photos didn’t do them justice! White star-gazers and lots of greenery.

Synchronized swimmers came out during dinner and put on an amazing show, twice! I don’t know how they got in that pool- it was SO cold out! I took so many photos of the Neptune Pool while we were there. Even in the fog and the cold it was such a beautiful backdrop to dinner.

Of course I took a photo of my favorite part of dinner- the dessert! We had three small bites and they were all delicious. My favorite of the three was the mocha flavored ice cream sandwiched in between two chocolate cookies. Yum! This is us at the end of the night. We were FREEZING but having such a great time. (sorry for the blurry photo-blackberry in the fog)

  1. Ah! I’m all kinds of jealous of you right now. A fancy pants dinner at the Neptune Pool? That’s pretty much the best anniversary I can think of! I did a post on the Hearst Castle in my 100 places to go series and I’ve been obsessed with working it into a family vacation ever since.

    PS You and your husband look gorgeous in the last picture by the way.
