The middle of June, we headed up to South Georgia for DW’s cousin’s wedding.
Addy was a beautiful bride and her wedding was just as gorgeous.
The guys worked until lunch on Friday and then we loaded up in Nen’s Tahoe headed north.
Addy’s husband’s family did such a nice job with the rehearsal dinner.
They had decorated with a beach theme and the food was delicious. Dessert was probably my favorite (imagine that) – but it was seriously one of the best pecan pies I have ever had and they served this chocolate/caramel scoop of ice cream on top of it… it was SO good.
Grandma & G-Pa with the girls @ rehearsal dinner
I loved when the pastor prayed that evening, he thanked God for everyone there, and in his prayer he pointed out that that exact group of people would never come together again, except for this occasion. I don’t know why, but I loved that. It just made it seem that much more special. We enjoyed getting to meet many friends of the family up there and also visiting with part of the extended family that we don’t get to see often.
The next day, we enjoyed a lazy morning around Grandma’s pool! I figured we would have last minute wedding things to do…programs to fold, ribbons to tie…SOMETHING… but nope, everything was done. Those guys were on top of it. :)
AB’s favorite thing to do this summer is SWIM, so she had a great time!
“Grandma & G-Pa” have certainly made their own little paradise for relaxing and having a good time. Their pool is area is so fun. I’ve always loved the view from their backyard. DW’s grandfather lives on one side and his uncle & aunt live on the other, so they all get to enjoy the view of the farm.
For lunch, we got some Jan’s fried chicken. It’s tradition when we go to Georgia. After we were full on that, we got ready for the wedding.
I loved the “A & D” moss letters hanging on the door! & NOT JUST because they are mine & my love’s initials, too. :) ha…
Flowers in the church
The ceremony was very sweet and after the new couple was introduced as Mr. & Mrs., we headed to the country club for the reception.
Addy & Daniel did such an impressive job on their first dance.
Adam & DW with their Papa
The whole crew (except my big head is blocking AB…)
Annabelle & Maybree’s first wedding – probably one of very few things they’ll get to experience for the FIRST time TOGETHER. :)
I looked out at the golf course and thought, “Oh, how cute those pictures are going to turn out” before I realized it was Addy & the bridal party! Aren’t the colored parasails the cutest?!?!?
Just like at the rehearsal dinner, we enjoyed seeing lots of my mother-in-law’s extended family, who we don’t get to see very often.
We all hated that we didn’t get to stay to see them drive away, but we were headed back home that night, so we had to hit the road.
It was a fun wedding weekend. There’s nothing like a wedding. (Unless you’re a guy of course…) :)
