Hoo Married a Deac

As many of you may know, one of the big trends in weddings now is having the perfect hashtag – it’s a fun way to have your guests post pictures to social media and then by clicking on the aforementioned hashtag, all of your guest’s pictures/tweets/posts will be in one place – little album before your official pictures come in!

So now that we’re all on the same page in hashtag land, my radio silence has been due to that fact that I was in one of my very best friends (actually more like another sister to me – hi Anna!) wedding – and no, it was nothing like the movie!

The week before the wedding, I lurked around my old hometown, Charlotte, NC, running errands and seeing old friends (I wish I had a picture of my book club dinner!!). From Charlotte, Sarah Craig (the bride to be) and I drove down to Hilton Head, South Carolina for the big weekend. There were some intense storms and rain that blew through on Thursday, but Friday dawned clear, sunny, and the perfect temperature – dont you love it when the wedding gods smile down??

So, back to the hashtag: since the bride went to Wake Forest (home of the Demon Deacons – Deacs for short – yeah it’s a weird one, dont ask…) and the groom went to the University of Virginia (home of Wahoos – Hoos for short – again, weird, dont ask), the most clever (cleverist?) hashtag was developed: #HooMarriedaDeac (!)

Sarah Craig and Bill’s wedding was such a great time – I was so blessed to stand next to them as they said their vows in front of so many family and friends. Enjoy this photo heavy post – and cheers to Sas and Bill 🙂
