The time we drove 9 hours

...that is commitment! Some of our good friends were having a small wedding in Pennsylvania last May, and we just couldn't let ourselves miss it. It was going to be much too beautiful of a day not too. So, we started to drive and got a surprise call on the way from one of the groomsmen who said that they wanted us to stay in the Bed & Breakfast with them overnight instead of paying for a hotel.

I would stay with the bride and her friends, and Caleb would stay with the groom and their friends. It was a blast. Little did I know this was in Elizabethtown (yes, where the movie was filmed) and was the most GORGEOUS bed and breakfast EVER!

The Bride, Erin, is now pregnant and is seriously going to be the cutest momma in the world. Did I mention yet how FLAWLESS she was on her wedding day?! I mean, LOOK at that dress!

It was so cool traveling around town the night before the wedding...and also the day of. It was also great to have an appetizer hour before the reception started, and to spend it with friends!

Their wedding was so beautiful, and the reception was an absolute blast. The groom surprised everyone by singing a song to his new wife. Made us all cry happy tears.

Then it was dancing time! You know Caleb and the groom won the contest ;)

The drive there and back both within two days was tiring, but being a part of their amazing day was so worth it! Hoping they can all make it for our big day and celebrate with us!! :)

Happy Travel Tuesday, friends ;)

  10. It makes me happy that you guys made the drive to make it to the wedding. I did a post a while ago about how people need to be more adventurous and do things that maybe aren't comfortable and easy, but are worth the experience. It looks like that wedding was definitely worth the experience. What a beautiful B&B!
