Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a wedding shower for one of my dearest friends, Elaine.
Elaine and Brandon were lab partners in Vet school and consequently we spent a lot of time together.
Elaine and I served on 3 veterinary missions trips together and have shared the darkest places of hearts with one another.
She is a true sister in Christ and I could not be happier for her as she has finally found her Prince Charming that she has been waiting so long for.
The shower was at Canoe, a gorgeous and delicious restaurant in the Vinings neighborhood of Atlanta, right on the riverbanks of the Chattahoochee River.
We dined al fresco and even though it was near 90 degrees outside we never knew it.
There was a constant breeze and no one was sweating-very comfortable.
Elaine and me-her finace is one lucky man to have her!
She has the sweetest, most gentle spirit and the purest heart.
Plus, she is a fantastic veterinarian.
These were the views from where we were sitting. Just beautiful.
I had the special, which was a salmon burger topped with applewood smoked bacon, a fried egg, and grilled tomatoes with lettuce.
It was wonderful.
Elaine's cake said, "Happily Ever After" on the top-precious!
The ladies at the shower.
So great to catch up with everyone!
Canoe plays host to a variety of events including weddings and receptions. What a beautiful setting.
Erin, who was also in Brandon and Elaine's vet school class just had her first baby 2 months ago!
Her baby girl was so precious and so good.
Y'all, we were there for 3.5 hours and that baby never once cried or fussed.
In fact, Erin finally had to wake her up after the first 2 hours to feed her.
Such a happy and healthy girl!
What a wonderful day with friends and fellowship.
We can't wait to get together again at the end of June for the wedding.
It's going to be beautiful.
