One of my sweetest friends and college roommate got married this past weekend. I met Lindsay through my FCA small group at the very beginning of my freshman year of college, and we ended up living together during our junior and senior years of college. She and Thomas, her now husband, started dating around the same time that Andrew and I started dating. Andrew and Thomas lived on the same hall their freshman year and were already friends before we started dating, and Andrew was actually the one that introduced Thomas and Lindsay to each other.
Andrew and I both had a lot of fun hanging out with the two of them during college, and Lindsay and I spent many nights hanging out in each other’s rooms at our apartment talking about the boys and wishfully thinking out our weddings. This probably happened a little too much, but it also didn’t help that Pinterest came out during those years. I promise we weren’t crazy.
Lindsay’s wedding weekend kicked off at lunchtime on Friday with the cutest little bridesmaid luncheon. The decor was whimsical and fun (wishing I had taken more photos), and the food was delicious. They also had Brick Street Sweet Potato Cake, and even though we were all stuffed after lunch, we somehow made room for cake. You can’t not eat Brick Street’s cake when it’s offered to you.
All of the bridesmaids except one at the bridal luncheon. This was the tallest bridal party I’ve ever been a part of. Normally I feel like I tower over everyone else, but there were a few bridesmaids that had me beat this time. I should also mention that Lindsay played basketball at Clemson and has quite a few tall, athletic friends (not me, obviously).
The rehearsal dinner was at The Davenport in Greer on Friday night, and once again, everything was just lovely.
One of my favorite things about weddings is the time you get to spend with out-of-town friends. All of my roommates were in the wedding, and we had so much fun hanging out with each other all weekend.
Everything went off without a hitch on Saturday. Lindsay looked gorgeous, and her dress was amazing. The ceremony was beautiful, and we had fun dancing the night away at the reception.
