I just love The Olema Inn, where Adrea and Dave were married. And of course, the couple loves it too. Says the bride:

First of all I love the drive out to Olema. Either way you go (up Highway 1 or Sir Francis Drake Boulevard) it is a beautiful drive. Dave and I had stayed at The Olema Inn before, and we had always loved the historic building with the naturally lit dinning room. When we got engaged we went out to the inn for lunch and decided right then that we would get married there. We didn’t even look anywhere else! The inn only has 6 rooms upstairs, so we had our immediate family stay with us.

We got married in the garden in the back – there are these beautiful brambly fruit trees in the garden that were full of apples and figs on our August wedding day.

From the groom: My favorite part of the wedding was first spying Adrea in her dress as she walked down the aisle. As per tradition I never saw or heard what the dress was like before that moment, and I actually said out loud, “Oh my god, she is so beautiful.”
