Tuesday, October 21


As I mentioned yesterday, I spent Wednesday-Sunday on Hilton Head Island for my best friend's wedding. Besides being a much needed vacation, it was the most perfect wedding trip ever and I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a little post-vacation/wedding depression. All of our best friends and family friends were in one place and the majority of our time was spent on the beach.


On Thursday morning, Ali's grandpa took the wedding party out on his boat for 3 hours. It was the perfect way to kick off the wedding weekend and we had so much fun chatting and soaking in the sun. 


On Friday morning, one of our family friends taught us a Zumba class on the beach. I felt really uncoordinated, and we definitely got a lot of stares, but we had such a blast! One woman riding her bike even stopped and joined in on the fun.

The rest of the day was spent on the beach with friends and family. There literally wasn't a cloud in the sky. We played tons of Kan-Jam and Kadima, went out on paddleboards and kayaks, and basked in the sun. So perfect.

Saturday we got ready at the house, which was really relaxing, and took pictures early afternoon. I can't wait to see how the professional photos turn out.

Ali was the most stunning bride. She was absolutely radiant and shining with so much happiness and love. I definitely teared up seeing her walk down the aisle.

The father of the groom performed the ceremony. It was such a beautiful and sweet ceremony and you could feel God's love everywhere. Especially sweet was the siblings of the bride and groom singing Multiplied by Needtobreathe.

 The rest of the night was spent as any other wedding would go - and it was absolutely perfect. The toasts were funny but sentimental, the first dance made me cry, the food was incredible, and the band ROCKED. I think we would have been dancing until 3 am if we had the choice!

Congratulations and cheers to Ali and Daniel! I feel so lucky and blessed to have been part of your day and surrounded by so much love and happiness. Love you both so very much!
