Weekend Recap

How was your weekend? Ours was filled with a refreshing mix of productivity and relaxation.  It's official! We have a wedding date. WHEW. April 27th, 2013 is our big day. We could not be any more excited.  "Our" chapel is absolutely perfect for us in every single way.  I had much debate after researching spots online, but after walking into this quaint little chapel, Austin & I knew this one was perfect for us.

(Aren't the Azalea's gorgeous? Thankfully, April is prime time Azalea month in the south!)

The interior is absolutely magnificent.  All slate floors and the chandelier took my breath away.  The French light fixture dating back to 1860, was brought to the United States and electrically wired especially for this precious little gem.

I cannot wait to say "I do". Especially here. A very dear family friend of mine is playing the organ in the chapel during the ceremony.  All of the elements coming together just mean so much to me and all have sentimental value, as every wedding day should.  You should have seen how excited Austin and I were about this.  We even did a practice "skip" down the aisle!

The rest of our weekend was filled with catching up on sleep, cold beer, lots of carbs (I'll be a slave to the gym this week) and good friends.  We even got to lay out, yes that is right. I got a suntan in December.  It was marvelous.

Happy Monday!





  1. I am a new follower of your blog & a new blogger myself. I see you are from too. That chapel is beautiful. My husband and I got married in a small church with such cute character, I think that makes it special. You can follow me at
