Friendship and Engagement

I consider myself very lucky to say I have two best friends that I have known for over twenty-seven years.  We grew up on the same street and had a blissful childhood of outdoor play, neighborhood truck rides, watching 'Hey Dude', and putting on dance shows for our parents (we even tried to charge admission!)  With three very different personalities we don't always agree and sometimes give each other funny looks but we ALWAYS have a good time and I know these two girls will always be there for me.

In just over a month one of our little trio is getting married!  We celebrated in Charleston a couple of months ago and Easter weekend Em and I co-hosted an engagement party for the Bride and Groom!  I haven't been involved in planning a get-together like this in quite a while and I must say I enjoyed it!  Big shout out to Em's parents for opening their house (and amazing food!) for the party and my parents for helping me get things done (and getting the wine that was SO good!)

Here are a few pictures I took before guest arrived:

The graphic used for the invitation came from Fox Grove Designs and she did a wonderful job creating our custom invitation.
We went for a Virginia theme - Dogwood, Cardinal love birds (did you know the male Cardinal is in fact not red?), Virginia get the idea.

A good time was had by all and we ended the night with the three of us and our families laughing and talking about memories from 20-25 years ago.  Wow, are we really getting that old? 
Cheers to you, Bride and Groom, and I can't wait to celebrate the two of you very soon! 


  1. Hello there! It sounds like you had a lovely party! I love the little print with the Virginia graphic on it. Anyways, I just wanted to thank you for the shout out :) Best wishes to the bride and groom!
