It’s officially 2016 wedding season! Hunter and I spent this past weekend in Savannah, celebrating our good friends Taylor & Will.
Taylor and I went to middle and high school together, and then were the only 2 Starr’s Millionaires who attended College of Charleston. We ended up in the same dorm, on the same floor, and just right around the corner from each other freshman year… the rest is history.
Friday night after work, we drove down to Savannah and kicked off the festivities upstairs at Churchill’s Pub with a cocktail party. Shout out to Michelle for hooking me up with the fabulous Troubadour skirt!
I had fun catching up with several high school friends that I hadn’t seen in years. And how good do the oyster shell candles look on the table Mrs. Debartola did?
Saturday morning, Hunter and I woke up and took advantage of the beautiful, sunny day. We walked all around the city and had lunch at a spot that Katie recommended, Collins Quarter. The wait was worth it — the food was phenomenal, and the overall atmosphere was so eclectic and fun. I had the eggs benedict, and Hunter went with the brisket burger. Both got thumbs up.
After walking around all morning in shoes that weren’t ideal, we headed back to Katie & Kyle’s place to relax and get ready for the wedding.
We all knew that the wedding was going to be fashionable & fun, and we were not disappointed. The wedding was held at the Club at the Westin. The ceremony was outside by the golf course, with a big oak tree. I’m pretty sure we all had some happy tears as the wedding parties & grooms came down the aisle.
Once the ceremony was over, everyone was ready to celebrate, and by celebrate, I mean dance. I think I spent 70% of the time on the dance floor, so was glad to use cocktail hour talking with everyone and grabbing some food.
2 random notes from the night: Alex killed his best man speech, and Taylor used succulents everywhere, and I just loved it. Also, I love dresses with pockets, thanks Rent The Runway!
Overall we had a wonderful weekend in Savannah — we ate well, saw old friends, danced the night away, and laughed a lot. As Will’s dad said, “All you need is love” and that’s exactly what there was this weekend.
Congratulations, Taylor & Will!
