Mid-May Weekending

Some of y'all may have noticed something on my Instagram on Friday afternoon.

Friday was my last day at the job I was at for the first two years that I was back in Columbia. It was a hard decision to leave that job & the friends I made there behind, but I am super excited to start my new job today!

Saturday was all about a wedding.

One that we might have crashed.

The short story is that I got to help out behind the scenes with my favorite Columbia photographer {who was also our wedding photographer}. The mother of the bride & my mom go way back and once she and her daughter heard I was helping out with the photographer, they insisted that Patrick and I come to the reception.

Who are we to say no to a fun night of celebrating and dancing?

Added bonus: they had hired the same band from our reception to play at their reception!

We loved seeing our band again and getting to dance to them. I think that I was on the dance floor the entire night with either my mom or Patrick. There's probably a slew of pictures on Jessica's camera now that I can add to my "Reasons I Shouldn't Dance in Public" collection, but whatever. We had a ball. Best part? The band remembered us and made sure to say hey.

It was a gorgeous reception, and the bride, Marian Bryce, was absolutely stunning!

Also: cheers to this mom!

Not that I ever need an excuse to post a wedding picture {or 5} but Mother's Day seems like a good reason to me ;)

Happy Monday, y'all!
