Over the next week or so, I’ll be going back in time to recap our wedding week. Since we recently received a batch of lovely photos from Ian Riley, our photographer, it’s time to share the whole story!
On the Thursday before our wedding, Anthony and I parted ways to spend some quality time with our gender-specific friends and family.
The girls kicked off the morning with a bit of pottery painting at Third Coast Clay in Franklin, Tennessee. (Back story is I love painting pottery/painting in general, especially with girlfriends.)First we chose our colors…And then painted away!My mom claims that she is not responsible for my artistic side, but she is so wrong. I ended up with quite a collection of pottery! (And quite a bit of lingerie, which was also gifted during the event )
While we were painting, the boys were golfing!Pretty sure most of Anthony’s boy crew had limited experience on the greens, which I hear made for a fun event.You’ll have to ask my dad for details on how the outing went down, but I know they played some sort of “speed golf” game that emphasized fast swings and little strategy. My man! (and my photographer, in the reflection of his sunglasses!)Back to the girls! We met up for dinner at Pub 5 in Nashville.Wine, salads, and french fries all around — topped off with a sparkly tiara. A last group photo before we headed out for more drinks + line dancing!Speaking of drinks, I’m pretty sure that was the main focus for the boys for the rest of the day. They did some tasting and straight-up drinking at Corsair, an artisan distillery in Nashville.Apparently the cigars also came out.And my dad might have had one too many. 😉What can I say. This family knows how to party.
Up next: Rehearsal dinner!
