Fall, Gilmore Girls, and My Honeymoon
As I write this post I am sipping on hot buttered rum (ever tried it?) and wrapped in a blanket. Fall has officially hit us in Kansas, and I am loving it. Soon I will be decorating with pumpkins, wearing scarves and sweaters, and photographing trees turning colors. And yet… I am thinking of my honeymoon.
What got me thinking of my honeymoon? Gilmore Girls, because of the changing season. It seems like a strange train of thought, but let me back up.
My husband and I got married in August of 2016. We went to California and stood on an outlook overlooking a beach (I don’t have any pictures of this… which will be another story for another time). It was utterly beautiful. My parents were there, and a few cousins, and a friend of Chris performed the ceremony. Afterward we had dinner at a restaurant that overlooked the ocean, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. I loved every moment of it.
On that same trip to get married we had a small honeymoon, that took place in both Solvang and LA. While in LA we explored the Aquarium and visited Warner Bros. This brings me to the Gilmore Girls portion of this post. Gilmore Girls was filmed at Warner Bros, and if you happen to take a tour you will see many Stars Hollow buildings and maybe even get to see the famous gazebo that resides in the middle of the town square. Being the huge Gilmore Girls fan that I am (especially the first four seasons!), I asked if we could tour the Lorelai/Sookie house. Did you know that the front of Sookie’s house faces the street, but if you walk through it and go out the back the “back” of Sookie’s house it doubles as the “front” of Lorelai and Rory’s house? Is that confusing? That’s the trick of photography and film for you!
Whenever I think of Gilmore Girls I think of fall, probably because of the clothes they wear and how it always gives me a cozy feeling when I watch the show. Sometimes I really wish I could live in Stars Hollow! So my random train of thought, from fall, to Gilmore Girls, to my honeymoon. It all makes sense now, right?
I HIGHLY recommend touring Warner Bros. Other great movies and shows that were made by Warner Bros includes the Harry Potter movies, the show Friends, and Tim Burton’s The Corpse Bride. If you are curious about touring the studio while you are in town just click here to explore the Warner Bros site.
I’d love to hear about your honeymoons! Where did you go? Anything significant about it stand out in your mind? What was your favorite part of your honeymoon? Anything you would change?
