Jeremy and I were in Charlottesville this past weekend celebrating his friend, Porter’s wedding. Jeremy and Porter met their first year of Darden business school and lived together their second year. They became close friends and Porter was one of Jeremy’s groomsmen in our June wedding. Porter met Katie (his now wife) at Darden so it came full circle last weekend when they got married in Charlottesville.
Lanie and Brian’s wedding was on Saturday October 15 at the Martha’s Vineyard Sailing Camp. The Martha’s Vineyard Sailing Camp is on 15 wooded acres and sits high on a Bluff and overlooks the Lagoon Pond and outer Vineyard Haven Harbor. The view for the wedding was spectacular and something out of a romantic movie. I kept asking myself when Ryan Gosling would appear… Lanie and Brian’s wedding reception was held inside the Martha’s Vineyard Sailing Camp facility and featured timbered vaulted ceilings and a fieldstone fireplace. The entire wedding was so cozy and beautiful. Lanie really outdid herself on planning her wedding.
Last weekend I was in Martha’s Vineyard celebrating my college roommate and sorority sister, Lanie’s wedding! Lanie’s family has had a house in Oak Bluffs for generations and she has spent every one of her summers at Martha’s Vineyard. I visited her the summer after we graduated college and I fell in love with the island. Brian (her now husband) proposed while they were vacationing on the island and I was hoping she’d get marred on Martha’s Vineyard. So when I got the wedding invitation I was so pumped to spend a weekend at Martha’s Vineyard again. It takes planes, trains and automobiles to get to Martha’s Vineyard, but when you get to the island it’s completely worth it.
On Saturday I grabbed lunch with one of my girlfriends and we checked out the Urban Air Market in East Atlanta Village. Urban Air Market is a showcase of emerging sustainable designers and artists. There were local, one of a kind; quality products direct from local Atlanta artisans. The Urban Air Market wasn’t as large as we thought it would be, but we enjoyed walking outside in the warm weather. Even though it is mid October the weather is still in the 80’s in Atlanta, hence the shorts. We grabbed lunch at Tomatillos, a Mexican restaurant and then continued to shop.
One of my closest friends, Laken, got married the weekend of September 24. She lives in Baltimore and had her wedding festivities in the Baltimore area. Friday September 23 her in-laws hosted her wedding rehearsal at the Boathouse Canton, a waterfront grille and seafood restaurant, on the waterfront of Tindeco Wharf in Baltimore’s renowned Harbor. We had a private indoor and outdoor area at the Boathouse Canton with waterfront views of the Harbor. The menu was amazing and the crab cakes were to die for. My husband and I spent the evening catching up with Laken, her husband and both of their families. On Saturday September 24 she got married at the Mt. Washington Mill Dye House.
