Daphne & Andrew’s Wedding

The last weekend in August we celebrated Daphne & Andrew’s wedding!  The party started for Chrissie and I on Friday at 11am drinking tall boys of Corona Light in a cemetary in uptown Charlotte.  Yes, we are quite aware of how classy we are!

Classy Ladies....

 We had arrived early to the Bridesmaid Brunch, and Daph wasn’t ready for us yet… so what else were we to do?? haha!  Eventually, we went up to the pool-side patio where we joined the bride and other bridesmaids for a delicious brunch.  We had breakfast casserole, cream-cheese muffins, freshly squeezed orange-ade, coffee, fruit, and bacon!!  It was so nice to be able to relax and have fun together before the weekend really got crazy!

 That evening was the rehearsal, followed by an awesome mexican fiesta dinner at Cantina 1511.

 That night, all of us girls had a sleepover at the hotel, and the next morning it was time to get ready for the wedding!

 Their wedding was held at Freedom Park in Charlotte.  The ceremony took place on the island under the weeping willow trees, and the reception was held in the open-air ampitheatre.  All of the decorations were DIY projects, and even though it took FOREVER them and get everything to the wedding planner, I think the results were great!

These next two picture below are from their photographer Tirzah Photography.  Rachel did an AMAZING job capturing the day!!  Go here for more pix: http://www.tirzahphotography.com/2011/09/andrew-daphne-wedding.html

And, last but not least, the bride and groom!  About 3 weeks after their wedding, they moved to Korea for a year to teach English together.  I miss them so much already, but I’m so glad I got to be apart of their most special day! Daph & Andrew – you two are such a sweet and wonderful couple! I wish you nothing but many more happy years filled with fun, and adventure!!  xoxo
