I hope y’all had a sunny Memorial Day weekend full of lemonade and cookouts to kick off summer. We had a pretty amazing weekend ourselves – roadtripped with one of our fave couples, the Klebergs, down to the sweet Southern state of Alabama to see our dear friends, Sarah Catherine and Karver, get hitched! It was the perfect excuse to take off a little early and enjoy a full few days of southern hospitality. The wedding was at the home of the bride in the quaint, little town of Florence – how fun is it to explore the place a close friend grew up? We spent the majority of our time sunbathing at the yacht club where the men wore visors and croakies (Michael was in heaven) and the women sipped on gin and tonics. If you’re ever passing through Florence, we highly recommend grabbing dinner at City Hardware (we did… twice). And if you plan to drink a beer or two poolside on a Sunday, be certain to buy your brews the Saturday before (the sale of alcohol on the Sabbath is prohibited – we know, we got the evil eye for trying!).
Photos above from my iPhone: The invitation (by Rock, Paper, Scissors), Michael by the pool, passing through Tennessee (goodness, the South can be beautiful) and the sweetest thing: Mr. Rice serenading the bride and groom at the beginning of the gorgeous reception.
We had the best time. Sarah Catherine was a beautiful, gracious bride. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Bolton! Can’t wait til you’re back from the honeymoon!
