Weekend Recap- Wedding Edition
So the Robinson's MO these days is that we are always going to weddings or wedding related events and this weekend was full of them!
Friday night, we had a Stock the Bar shower for my long-time family friend, Ben, and his fiance, Emily. I unfortunately forgot to take some pictures. The party was at a house in Brookhaven. It was great to see Ben's parents and a few other friends of mine from college. Ben and Emily are getting married in October in Dahlonega! My whole family is going so needless to say I can't wait!!
After the shower, we hopped over to the St. Regis to grab a drink with our college friends who had just left the rehearsal dinner for our friends getting married on Saturday.
Saturday morning I had a bridal shower for my good friend from college, Lizzie. Lizzie is getting married in Hilton Head in three weeks! Colleen and Carly did a great job decorating and cooking for the shower. Lizzie got all kinds of great gifts and it was a nice, small shower getting to celebrate her and Nick.
Saturday night, we had a wedding for Tommy's old roommate (my high school prom date) and his fiance, Colin and Meghan. I was so excited about this wedding as they are some of our closest couple friends and we knew so many people that were going. It's funny how small the world really gets. The couple we had the shower for Friday night were there because Emily and Meghan work together. It was a great gathering at our favorite place (where we had our reception) Summerour Studios. Meghan did a beautiful job decorating the space. Bold American did a fantastic job with the food. They had a fried chicken station, pulled pork in a mason jar station, and a salmon station. Since our wedding, Summerour has taken over the upstairs that used to be an architectural firm. That is where the cocktail hour was held as well as in the courtyard. Would have been wonderful on our wedding day as it was POURING down rain and our cocktail hour ended up in the main room. Oh well! Here are some pictures from the night. Meghan was glowing and you could just feel the love in the room all night. Such a special time with our friends!
Sunday, we slept in (aren't you exhausted from reading about your weekend because I sure am!) and tried our brunch at Southbound. It was yummyyyy
After brunch, I spent the afternoon running my grocery errands for the week. We popped over to the Willi household to see my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew since we didn't get to see them all weekend. Every time I see Collier I feel like he has changed so I try not to go more than a week without a visit over to them! After a quick visit, we headed to a Red Dot picnic (community groups with our church) in Sandy Springs (we usually go to the Brookhaven events) because the Sandy Springs Red Dot group is really making a huge effort to get involved at my school. My principal, his family, two other teachers, and their husbands all went to be able to promote our school and answer questions any community members had about our school. There was a great turnout and the weather held off! We had a great time and felt very loved that so many people are wanting to help our students.
Looking forward to a great week!
