Hillary & Wes’ welcome BBQ was fun, casual, and a great way to kick off the weekend. Guests were picked up at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa in old fashioned trolleys and taken to the big red barn. Bluegrass music greeted them upon arrival along with Blackberry Mint Juleps and family photos hanging from the walls hung with twine and clothespins. The photos were enlarged so that guests could really enjoy them.
Handmade paper flowers hung on the crepe paper yellow and red backdrop behind the bluegrass band and bright flowers in vintage tea tins and pottery vases decorated the red and white checked tablecloths.
Guests enjoyed the gourmet burger bar and organic ice cream from Sweet Lucie’s Ice cream as they lounged on hay bale sofas and enjoyed the toasts from friends of Hillary and Wes.
