Audrey and Rob Turner's Wedding #turningturner
This weekend was one for the books. My best friend, Audrey, married the love of her life, Rob. Audrey and I met when we were in the same sorority in college. Our friendship really blossomed though after we graduated from Georgia. She is such a special friend to me and I was so honored to be part of her wedding day. (Pretty cool side note they got married on the same day as her parents. Her parents celebrated their 28th wedding anniversary this weekend too)
Thursday: we met some people for drinks at Cypress Street Pint and Plate to kick off the weekend.
Friday: We had the bridesmaid’s luncheon at the Swan Coach House with all the bridal party girls and a few of her mom’s best friends. It was as always a super girly good time. She gave us some super soft robes to wear while getting ready on Saturday and earrings for the wedding. We had a great lunch and then I went back with her to the hotel to hang out until the rehearsal instead of driving home and basically turning right around. They stayed at the beautiful Georgian Terrace Hotel. We went to the rehearsal at The Foundry at Puritan Mill then back to the Hotel for the rehearsal dinner. The Turner’s had the rehearsal dinner in the Livingston Restaurant in the lobby of the Georgian Terrace Hotel. It was a beautiful location and right across the street from the Fox Theater. The food was delicious and the speeches were great. The weekend really kicked off with a bang! After dinner we went downstairs to the hotel bar called Proof and Provision. Really neat atmosphere. You kinda felt like you were in a cave.
Saturday: WEDDING DAY! My hair appointment was first so I stopped by Starbucks to grab me, the bride and the MOH some coffee! The same hair/makeup lady that did my wedding did Audrey’s. It was a little stressful getting all the girls hair/makeup done but it all came together and everyone looked beautiful! The photographer showed up at around 2:30 and we all got dressed and ready for the night to begin! Audrey and Rob did their first look outside of the hotel in front of the Fox. It was a special moment that we all got to witness as well. Audrey was a stunning bride and Rob was a handsome groom. They both were glowing all night. Just wonderful to experience! We hopped on the trolley and headed to Puritan Mill for pictures and hanging out before the ceremony. The space was decorated beautifully! The photographers were so efficient and we just had the best day! The reception was wonderful. The band was awesome and we danced the night away! The food (Bold American) was just fantastic! Having all my friends in the same room is always such a treat because everyone lives all over the country and in France. We had a wonderful night celebrating a wonderful couple. I am so happy for Audrey and Rob and can’t wait to see what god has in store for their marriage!
