After getting married to her soulmate Matt, they had the most lovely reception at the Westin Poinsett, which is always a treat since I don't get to party there very often. You see, as a freshman ADPi, our chapter was kindly asked not to return after some spring formal debauchery. Whatever. It was totally worth it.
We did earn that right back my senior year, thank goodness. But nobody can say we can't throw a heck of a party. ;)
Kate's gown was so beautiful and feminine -- sleek and covered in lace.
The trio was reunited ... love these girls! I got to love on Ashley's baby bump (she is due about 6 weeks before me, does she not look fantastic?!) and we also got to celebrate Kerry's recent engagement!
Dressing for this wedding was a little interesting -- my tummy wasn't large enough to merit a maternity cocktail dress, so I pulled out this Laundry dress from many moons ago. It has ruching on one side and is very stretchy so it worked. I wore those JCP pink medallion pave earrings I'm obsessed with (on clearance now for $7) and a broach cuff that I made.
Here are the girls from my ADPi pledge class. We made sure to behave ourselves this time around.
As an added bonus, I actually got to meet two new friends, Jennifer and Amy, who read my blog! It was so much fun chatting with them. As you get older, it can be hard to meet new girlfriends, but this blog has been such a blessing in that regard!
The next morning on the way out of town, Ian and I grabbed some Starbucks for the road and drove through my alma mater's campus. Furman is just such a lovely place and not just for the memories I built there. In fact, just the other day it was named one of the 10 uniquely stunning college campuses from around the world! Ian had been there with me before, but it was fun driving slowly through the campus, pointing out my old dorm rooms and apartments as well as my classroom buildings and hangouts.
It truly was a spectacular wedding and congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs.!
