I’m back in Atlanta after a week at home for wedding planning and a weekend trip to my cousin’s wedding!
The wedding was amazing and soo sweet. It took place in an outdoor chapel, so I got front row seating. The ceremony was quite emotional and very beautiful. I think it made Matt and I nervous to say our vows:)
My cousin Chris (the bride’s brother), is a talented musician and he performed during the ceremony – you can hear some of his music here!
Congrats to Carolina and Kris!
For the reception, we walked through a gate to the bride’s backyard for a romantic evening in the garden.
There were hydrangeas in all kinds of beautiful vases.
I got to spend some time with my grandmother!
All of the food was awesome – fresh from a farm-to-table restaurant in Baltimore.
I drank a lot of red wine….
Everyone in this family loves bourbon, so the they did a toast with Manhattans before dinner was served.
They are usually too strong for me, but I enjoyed sipping this one.
Everything was fabulous, especially the bluefish paté and the lamb in phyllo.
The dessert bar!!
I heart wedding cake.
The groom is from Australia and he brought sparkling wine all the way from Tasmania – I was so excited when I saw the bottle!!
And it tasted soo good – made with pinot noir.
What a blast the weekend was, but I’m so excited to be back in Atlanta. After basically a month of traveling every weekend, I probably need to eat a bit less and get back in the grove of normal life. Grocery trip in the AM.
Happy Father’s Day!
