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.

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.
