fun-filled four days

Ever have those weekends where you wish you could be in multiple places at once? This past weekend was one of those for us. Richard was a groomsman in the wedding of a good friend from medical school in Charleston, but his college roommate also got married in Spartanburg on Saturday. And not only were the now 7-0 Clemson Tigers were taking on the Maryland Terps just a few short miles from our house, but our dear friends Rebecca and Robert were in DC for yet another wedding all weekend. We ended up getting to spend Thursday night with them and loved having them as house guests, then headed out to Charleston Friday morning for a fabulous weekend in Charleston (and a couple hours in Columbia!).

Rehearsal Dinner at Rue de Jean

With Heather the Bride and Ken the Groom- she looked beautiful and had gorgeous blue shoes!

Heather and Ken had a great Rehearsal Dinner with sweet toasts that made us laugh and cry, and Saturday turned out to be a perfect, sunny day. We did some shopping on King St and headed over to the beach at Sullivans Island before the wedding.

lunch at Poe's Tavern

The wedding was at a pretty old church downtown, and the reception was at the old Rice Mill. The trees outside were decorated with ribbons and chandeliers, and there were birds throughout the inside rooms- the happy couple are now the Doctors Byrd, so that was quite fitting.

On Sunday morning, we tried Husk for brunch, which was just named America's best new restaurant by Bon Appetite. It has amazing decor and was a wonderful experience, but the food didn't quite live up to the hype. Maybe dinner would be better?

loved catching up with Molly!

After brunch, we headed up I-26 to Columbia for a ladies' lunch to celebrate bride-to-be Jess, whose wedding is in just a few short weeks! Hannah, Bec and Jen did a fabulous job hostessing, and it was a treat to see some of my closest SC friends.

After the lunch, we visited with Richard's family for a bit and hit the road back to Charleston to spend the night with Jess and Paul and Ella before our early Monday morning flight. It was a packed weekend, but we wouldn't have it any other way!
