My Bestie Bee got married to the awesome Brandon last weekend, and I was honored and thrilled to be a part of their special day.
It was a crazy weekend, with lots of planning and decorating and dress-ordering and hair- and makeup-doing, but in the end everything came together beautifully, and it was a ceremony and reception that I won't soon forget.
Both Britney and Brandon put a lot of thought and effort into the decorations, all of which were beautiful and thoughtful, and the entire evening was a perfect representation of who they are both as individuals and as a couple.
The weekend provided an opportunity to see some Clinton School friends I've not seen in a long time, and it also allowed me to meet and spend time with more of Britney and Brandon's family and friends. I especially loved meeting Alyssa, Brandon's sister's daughter and the flower girl for the wedding -- I'm pretty sure she and I are best friends now.
Parts of the night are still a bit of a blur, but it was an experience I will remember forever.
other highlights included: Indian feasting in Asheville; toured the Biltmore; scored an August 1936 edition of Gone With the Wind [it was originally published in June 1936]; visited the Thomas Wolfe Memorial; family reunion; quality time with the Muffin.
And thus ends this crazy 5-week road trip. I can't believe it, either.
