You gotta love short work weeks. I can’t believe this week is already almost over right now. My body is long over due for some rest this weekend. I’ve been feeling kind of under the weather since I got back late on Tuesday night honestly, so I think some time in my PJ’s with my Netflix will be exactly what I need.
I couldn’t let this week slip past without telling you about the whole reason I went down to Florida last weekend: to celebrate Phil’s sister’s wedding.
To make a long story short, Amanda was in the grade above me in high school, so I’ve kept up with her over the years on Facebook and whatnot. Seeing her relationship with her now husband, Eric, grow via social media was such an honor. When Phil and I started dating, I was able to get to know Amanda and Eric as a couple beyond the Instagram filters and became even further convinced that they were perfect for each other.
Their wedding was at the St. Petersburg Shuffle Board Club where I actually attended the wedding of my friend, Katherine, back in April. It’s such a unique and casual venue that gives off all the Florida vibes. Unfortunately, in typical Florida fashion, the rain decided to make an appearance on and off throughout the day, so the wedding and reception were moved inside and no shuffle boarding took place.
In spite of the rain, it was still an absolutely beautiful wedding celebrating the love of Amanda and Eric. I wish I had taken more pictures because there were so many personal touches like this canvas which doubled as a guest book.
One of the things I was looking forward to the most (OK, what I always look forward to the most at weddings) was the cake. Amanda is an amazing cake decorating goddess who made her own wedding cake! She officially deserves some type of medal or something for that.
You can see the rain soaked shuffle board courts in the background. But let’s be real, the bride and groom completely stole the show.
Oh, and I guess this guy doesn’t clean up so bad himself : )
Even though the weekend flew by, I was so honored to be a part of all the wedding festivities leading up to the big day. It’s not every day that you see a couple who literally seem made for each other, but that’s exactly what you get with Amanda and Eric. Congrats to the newlyweds!
Rain on the wedding day: good luck?
What’s the best personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
