We traveled to NC this past weekend for our friends Erin and Asa’s wedding. It was a really beautiful wedding out at Deerfields which is about 30 minutes outside of Asheville, and it was of course really great to connect with old friends and celebrate! We drove down Thursday evening, and Drew dropped me off at my aunt and uncle’s farm in Madison County where I was treated to a delicious meal and good company, and Drew drove on to meet all of the guys for the bachelor party. On Friday we headed over to Deerfields for the rehearsal luncheon and then some set up for the big day on Saturday. I helped with decorations and the boys did some of the heavy lifting.
The ceremony took place in a beautiful outdoor chapel on the mountain above Deerfields, and we had a good time adding to some of the natural beauty of the setting. We had to get pretty creative draping the fabric on the structure, but after asking ourselves, what would MacGyver do? we located a tennis shoe, some fishing line and a staple gun (I kid you not) and the problem was solved. After that we closed shop for the evening and got ready for the big event on Saturday!
Following the ceremony on Saturday afternoon, we were treated to a delicious dinner, toasts, and a night of dancing with some of our favorite people. When the ceremony was over, Drew and I both agreed that we love that our friends all have such beautiful weddings. Each one is unique and every time we are struck by the couple’s creativity and the love of our college community.

We were also happily able to squeeze in quick visits with my stepmother Ruth and a Father’s Day breakfast with my dad and sister before hitting the road and heading back to VA…it was a great wedding weekend indeed!
