Weekend Recap

We sure were busy this weekend!

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you know all about this. For those who don’t follow me, this weekend John and I had a wedding in Annapolis, Maryland for one of my close friends/coworkers. We spent Friday getting our stuff together and packing, then hit the road bright and early Saturday morning. Armed with coffee and bagels in hand, it took us roughly 5 hours to get to our hotel (not going to lie, I was getting antsy).

Leslie and Nick were married on Nick’s aunt and uncle’s property. The shuttle picked us up at our hotel and we were escorted over the Bay Bridge to their house. We pulled off the main road and went down a winding dirt road to their home.

Can I just say…wow. It was a gorgeous house on amazingly big property overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. Leslie and Nick said their personal and emotional vows while the sun was setting over the water. I of course was tearing up, which is funny since I pretty much laughed throughout my own ceremony.

After their vows, we ate, drank and danced the night away under a beautiful white tent on the property. It was really lovely, and I know Nick and Leslie are going to have a very long, loving life together.

 

 

On Sunday after a ridiculously long drive home (we hit INSANE traffic as soon as we reached Brooklyn), John and I went for dinner at my sister’s house. She just gutted her kitchen and had us all over to christen the place. Next time I’m there, I’ll take some pictures to share. The kitchen/dining room is GORGEOUS and you guys will love it. Blue walls, chocolate-brown floors and cabinets plus amazing tan/brown/gold granite counter-tops. Talk about swoon-worthy. The before-and-after’s with her house are incredible, maybe that will be a post coming soon…

I have more pictures from the wedding on my actual camera (which died during their first dance…awesome planning, Ashley!) so I will update this post later today!!

How was your weekend? Do anything fun? Did you go to any weddings? I’d love to hear about it!!

  1. It looks like a gorgeous place to have a wedding. I haven’t been to any weddings in the last few years – but I have a feeling that as we get a bit older I’ll end up (almost) sick of them, haha.
    I didn’t do anything out of the ordinary this weekend, actually! But Wednesday is a national holiday here in Spain so this week will be a bit weird – but nice to have a day off!

    • We’ve had four since our wedding in June, and have another wedding in two weeks. It’s been wedding overload!!! I’m excited to have a little break from them, to be honest. Plus being at a guest at so many back-to-back wedding’s is expensive!!!

      • We’ve had a ton of weddings this summer, too (including our own)! They’ve all been in/around the Midwest (which would be convenient if we didn’t live in Texas), but we’re wedding-ed out!

        I laughed and cried at the same time while Kevin and I exchanged our personal vows. I’m fairly certain I may have snorted at one point 🙂
