My Best Friend's Wedding

Nicolette and I have been friends for over 25 years.  Crazy, right?!  It's almost mind blowing to me that two little gals in pig tails bonded over crayons in kindergarten and managed to stay best friends through so many stages of life.  We've been through so much together and I was so grateful to be such a special part of her big day.

We arrived on Thursday afternoon to a quaint little area of Mt. Pleasant, SC and beautiful weather.  Mt. Pleasant is just outside of Charleston and so picturesque.  We stayed with the family and other members of the bridal party at the Inn at I'On.  Highly recommended!  (It's a bit more expensive than your typical hotel but the rooms were really nice, clean, and a good size.  And the complimentary breakfast was made to order from a good selection)

The ceremony and reception took place right at a amazing spot right on Hobcaw creek.  The weather was absolutely perfect!  Any girl that has dreamed of the classic laid back, breezy, outdoor wedding is dreaming of this day and this place. And Nicolette looked absolutely stunning!!!

 I was a little occupied and didn't get many pictures of the bride and honestly these pictures just don't do the whole thing justice.  I can't wait to see her professional shots.

The newlyweds!

Happy greetings from old friends

Of course no wedding day is complete without a few minor bumps, right?!  Well the bride decided to throw her back out hours before the wedding.  Good thing she knew a good chiropractor!!
