So the trip was fun, albeit brief. Not only did I get to see some of my old school “Johnny Water Peeps / Precious Cargo “ crew (Melissa, Angie Rohacek, and Casey “Beulah Sheffield” Cross) but some other AmeriCorps peeps as well, most notably Vegan Steve, who officiated the wedding. The ceremony was brief, but incredibly sweet (and no shame- I cried). We hung out at the reception for a while, then headed home that evening about 8:30. (Click the picture above to see a few more shots.)
This was actually the second wedding of a very busy weekend. Wedding #1 was at 9:30 am here in the Columbia area. A USC classmate of mine, Rachael Russell, was marrying her long-time sweetheart Nicholas, and it was also a very short but sweet ceremony. The service was held at the Mitchell House in Lexington, which is set up for this type of deal, so when the service ended, we just went next door for the reception. Good spread of food, and several of my USC friends were there: Matt, Chrissy, the Stekdog, Jenny and Daniel.
That afternoon we bailed on the post-wedding party because of the intense sociality of the weekend. That evening, it was dinner with Fabian and Dianess Maganda, followed by drinks at the Public House with Tricia, Adam, and Michelle.
