Hey friends!! How was your weekend? I didn’t get around to blogging this weekend because it was jam packed! We left for Columbus, OH on Saturday morning at early o’clock for our friends’ wedding. We had a short layover in Chicago and got to Ohio around noon. We rented a car and drove about 15 minutes to our hotel downtown.
I found this picture on my husband’s phone from dinner last week when my mother-in-law was in town.
After we arrived, Jon went to meet up with a friend of his while I rested for a bit before getting ready for the wedding later that evening. The wedding and reception was at the Westin Hotel. The hotel is beautiful!
After watching our friends say I do, there was a fun cocktail hour with all the guests. My husband is friends with the groom from college; they were in the same fraternity. A lot of their fraternity brothers attended the wedding so it was really fun getting to catch up with everyone after all these years. Fun fact: My husband and I met in college at Miami of Ohio. He was a junior and I was a freshman. At the cocktail hour, there were a bunch of different napkins personalized by the bride and groom. My favorite included fun facts about them!
After the cocktail hour, we headed back to the same room where the ceremony took place for the reception. They transformed it into a beautiful reception with lots of tables and a dance floor. These were waiting at our seats with lottery tickets inside. How cute!
The couple had a traditional Jewish ceremony and included my favorite Jewish tradition. I always get nervous that someone is going to fall and get hurt, but thankfully no one did. 🙂
We had a blast celebrating the beautiful couple and seeing old friends. After a few hours of dancing we headed back to the hotel for some rest before another early morning flight. We left Columbus at 8:25am and got home to Nashville at 8:40am thanks to the time change! It was so nice to have all Sunday at home to get ahead for the week. We went grocery shopping, walked the dogs, cleaned the whole house, meal prepped and even got in some naps. 🙂
Have a great week, yall!!
