Alex and Liberty - June 28, 2014
Our ceremony and reception will both take place at the walnut grove at Full Belly Farm in Guinda, CA, about 2 hours away from Berkeley in the beautiful Capay Valley. This is a real, working farm (we get our vegetables from them!), so be prepared to be outside! There are sheep, chickens, and other animals around as well as many delicious crops. Food at the reception is grown with love by the farmers at Full Belly Farm.
In addition to a (hopefully warm) evening filled with dinner, drinks, dancing, and fun, those who are up for it are invited to camp out on the farm with us! (If you don't want to camp, don't worry, there are less rustic accommodations nearby.)
Details are as follows:

16090 Road 43
Guinda, CA 95637
The walnut grove is on your left as you come down Road 43. You can't miss it!
For directions and travel information, see How to Get There.
5pm-10pm. Ceremony begins promptly at 5pm, and is followed by dinner, drinks, and dancing until 10pm. Dinner will be served buffet-style with both meat and vegetarian options.
Those who are camping can arrive as early as 2:30pm to set up tents (see below).
Dress code: "California wedding" -- Sundresses or cocktail dresses and summer suits or nice shirt, tie, and slacks (Hillary Clinton power suits also accepted, but you might get too hot). Remember you'll be outside on possibly uneven ground, so wear sunscreen and leave your stilletto heels at home. Whatever you wear, come ready to DANCE! Flats or cowboy boots suggested over heels.
10pm-??: For those who enjoy it, please join us in camping out on the farm after the festivities have died down. Sit around the bonfire and toast marshmallows under the stars (unless it's like Berkeley, then we'll toast under the clouds). Camp will be at Full Belly Farm, and campers can set up their tents and sleeping bags before the start of the ceremony, as early as 2:30pm. There are no showers, but portable toilets will be available.
We have created a google group to organize camping supplies and rides to the farm. Please join the group and make a post if you can provide rides or if you need a ride to the wedding site.
