This past weekend, Patrick and I headed down to Hotlanta to see my sorority sister Maggie get hitched:
(Seriously...don't they look straight out of Southern Weddings? #gorgeous) Maggie and Andrew are the kind of couple you want to hang out with all.the.time. They're hilarious, fun, and they just love being around each other. The ceremony was filled with a lot of laughter (and a few happy tears...myself included). I may have crossed the line into ugly-cry as Mags walked down the aisle, which was only slightly embarrassing. (Thanks for letting me use your suit as a tissue, Patrick!)
It was also Patrick and I's first trip/wedding/couple pic together:
And I must say, we killed it. #truth.
Dress: Lilly Pulitzer Aaliyah from Rent the Runway. It's no longer available on the website, but it seems to be on eBay here.
Shoes: Jessica Simpson (and leather-free at that!) that I scored at a consignment store.
Since I live so far away from all of my college friends, it was great to be able to see them and introduce them to my new boo thang. We drank lots of champs, Heather Dubrow-style, and cut a rug on the dance floor.
Before heading back to reality Sunday morning (ok fine, afternoon), our lovely hostess (and driver of what I've dubbed The Deathmobile) Mackenzie took us to Atkins Park Tavern in Atlanta's Virginia Highland neighborhood for brunch.
They had black bean cakes with skillet potatoes on the side. #yesplease #guacstar. Needless to say, I was a very happy vegan.
Maggie and Andrew are off on their honeymoon in Hawaii, and I'm back to the daily grind. Womp womp. But getting a little break from my normal routine has definitely reenergized me to the point I was actually happy to be at work yesterday. Go figure.
How were y'alls weekends?
