Rehearsal Dinner

Over the weekend we celebrated my brother's wedding. Per his request we held the rehearsal dinner on my parents' patio around the pool. While we were a little concerned about the weather (August in NC can bring a mean evening thunderstorm) it turned out to be a beautiful summer evening.

The beautiful couple

A southern-inspired feast
My bestie drove 3 hours to be my "personal assistant"

Some dear friends gave lovingly of their time and talents to make the weekend so special.
(they are making shrimp 'n grits... mmm!!!)

The boyz are all grins because rehearsing by the pool is so much more fun than at the church

A night to celebrate the love of family and friends!

Hooray!!! Time for a wedding!!

Looks like a fun time had by all! I love the fruit kabobs with the top of the pineapple in the center. Great idea for the left-over top of it.
Thanks for sharing.

Hey Skinny Minnie!

You got a GREAT shot of the kiddos all smiling in their cute little outfits, score.

Your party looks very Pottery Barn-Martha Stewartish, what a great memory!

And last but not least, your best friend has a slammin cute hair-cut, and how sweet of God to provide a precious friend to be by your side on such a big weekend, man He's good to us like that!
