In talking about where to have Susie and Ben’s engagement session, their love of all things food and wine kept coming up. When they mentioned Santa Ynez as a potential spot, Paul and I were all about it. We had been craving a Fall getaway, and Santa Ynez is quite possibly the best So Cal can do. We picked apples, tasted olive oil, wandered through vineyards at their peak harvest, looked for pumpkins, and ate and drank some really great food and wine. And if you’re looking for any foodie referrals, Susie and Ben are totally the people to want to know. Not only did Ben pick out the perfect wine for my dad’s birthday, but they introduced us to several incredible restaurants. We are so looking forward to their food-filled wedding next month!
