Over the weekend we traveled up to Laurens, South Carolina for the wedding of one of Brandon's very best friends, Andrew Verdin. Brandon had the tremendous honor of being the best man in the wedding. I know he loves Andrew just like a brother and wishes they still lived down the street from one another. Everything was so beautiful and we thank Andrew and Rebekah for allowing us to share a part in their special day. We wish them all the best! We recently hosted a wedding shower for them, which you can read about and see pictures of here.the Best Man and Groom vet school buddies: Reid, Andrew, Brandon, and Matthew vet school friends :) Lindsey & Reid Wilkins, Andrew & Rebekah Verdin, us, Matthew & Breanna Groover some of the rehearsal dinner decor-there was also a fire pit and a projector for a slideshow crab legs galore low country boil boiled peanuts over 40 lbs. of shrimp to be cookedspeeches during the rehearsal dinner Brandon and his dad working on the meat the 192 lb. hog we smoked for the reception pulled pork the best man, groom, and groomsman-Reid-a senior vet student me and my love before the ceremony the ceremony The Groom's parent's home-site of the reception the wedding cake the Groom's cake-Veterinary inspired, of course! the couple's ride to the reception The Bride and Groom-I think the only picture I got of them together all night with my Mama, Mother-in-Law, and Elaine~3 of my favorite people!

Thank God for this sofa! "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 AND DON'T FORGET TO VOTE TODAY!!!
