Yeah, that’s how we do things in Georgia!
All joking aside, yesterday was a great day! We were all reunited yesterday for lunch and then an afternoon of shopping and catching up. Due to inclement weather warnings, we left memories of the pool behind for some retail therapy. The focus was on friendship and catching up versus shopping but we still found some good deals. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and Victoria Secret’s 5 for $25 sale were pretty much the only deals we found. I found two colorful Nike Tempo shorts for $17.90 each which is $10 less than normal.
Do new workout clothes make your workouts easier and more fun?
After shopping it was time to get wedding ready. As background, we all lived in the sorority house together during college so sharing a bathroom is something that is second nature for each of us. The new additions, Meghan and Rochelle’s husbands, got quite a kick out of the site.
Some of my best memories in college are getting ready with these ladies! Do you miss roommates if you had them in college? I miss free fashion advice and hair stylists.
And we’re off! Four girls, two boys, and one F250 extended cab!
I’m not going to lie. I think all four of us were surprised by the F-250’s space. We were tight but comfortable and our dresses arrived unwrinkled! Thanks Jason for driving!!
Brad and Alison were married in her home church, Gainesville First United Methodist Church. The wedding was lovely and the bridesmaids dresses were a gorgeous navy blue which blended with the pink peonies beautifully. Alison is an interior designer and you could see her touches throughout the wedding and reception. You could feel their love for each other throughout the entire ceremony as they smiled ear to ear. Weddings make me so happy as I feel they are the start of a new chapter in life for the couple.
The reception was held at the Quinlan Visual Arts Center which was the perfect venue. It was small enough that everyone could watch the bride and groom throughout the evening but had enough nearby hallways and open space that people could breathe and hear each other talk.
The decorations were simple yet elegant floral centerpieces while the art work provided most of the atmosphere and decoration. People really enjoyed exploring Quinlan and its’ art.
The happy bride and groom!
The grooms cake was definitely something to talk about!
The wedding cake was a light lemon cake with vanilla cream cheese frosting. Her bouquet made a gorgeous cake topper!
Best friend for seven years and counting! I’m so glad that we’ve been able to keep in touch and see each other at least once per year since college. Every time we’re together it is as if no time has passed!
