Our good high school friends, Kristin and PJ, have been dating since senior (or junior...can't remember) year of high school and finally tied the knot last weekend (9*22*12). The wedding was in Greenville, South Carolina, and it could not have been a more perfect weekend weather-wise!
The wedding was held at the Westin in downtown Greenville, and the town is set up to where everything you would ever need is within a few blocks. We started the wedding day off at the Carolina Ale House, a bar and grill across the street from the hotel. The upstairs was partly in the open air so it felt awesome to sit, watch football, and have some mimosas with our friends. It had been a while since we had seen most of them, so it was so exciting to get to catch up and meet their significant others :)
The ceremony was at Grace Baptist church, a block behind the hotel, so again, we were able to walk. It was a beautiful ceremony, and I loved her flowers! They were a mix of whites, pinks, blues, and greens. After the ceremony, we walked our way back to the Westin, took a shot of espresso, got some drinks, and hit the dance floor. We all didn't leave the dance floor much during the night, and it was a blast! The band even covered some songs that we loved in high school like "Ain't Life Grand" (not your typical wedding song), so it brought us right back!
Once the wedding was over, we sent Kristin and PJ off with sparklers, and they rode away in a carriage behind a beautiful white horse. The band played another 30 minutes before calling it quits, so we got in a few more dances before heading to a bar next door to continue the dance party. We didn't get to bed until late, but it was worth spending the most time possible with our best friends. I miss them already and counting down the days until we can all see each other again at the next wedding or function!
