Weekend Recap {Brantley & Stanton's Wedding}

This past weekend we headed to my hometown, Greenville, SC, for the wedding of Brantley and Stanton. John has known Stanton since their college days at Western Carolina. Stanton was an usher in our wedding and we were thrilled to be a part of his wedding weekend.

The rehearsal dinner was hosted at Brick Street CafĂ© on Friday night. We found out later from my sister that they are known for their desserts after raving to her about the sweet potato grooms cake. They also had a chocolate cake which I loved because it tasted like a brownie (my fave).

The next night was the wedding at the lovely, Ryan Nicholas Inn. The ceremony was held in the Inn and the reception in the Crystal Pavilion. The Inn was fully decorated for Christmas and the coordinator said that it was their first Christmas wedding.

On Sunday, we went to brunch at Rick Erwin's Nantucket in downtown Greenville with the newlyweds. After two nights sans Emery, we brought her along because everyone wanted to meet her. She was definitely an attention getter. I joked with Stanton that he thought he was going to be the center of attention. He joked back that he is done with that.

There were approximately 20 people in attendance and it was nice to get a little more time with them before they left for their honeymoon this morning.


It was so fun to see John's college buddies, some of whom I haven't seen since we lived in Charlotte and a few that I hadn't met before. The wives were pretty great too. This past weekend made me even more excited to move to Atlanta. It will give us an opportunity to reconnect with so many friends.


  1. Such a great weekend Lovely! I cannot wait for ATL either. I plan on making many a weekend trip so you can break out your makeup and high heels :)

    1. I can't wait. You and Brooks have an open invitation for weekend visits as often as you want.

  2. Loving the green dress, girly! And you guys looked fabulous at the wedding...what a gorgeous venue! Also..the fur the bride wore...YES! I really wanted to wear fur, but it just wasn't cold enough...which I'm not complaining about, but still. :) If I'd had bridals, I would have worn my mom's mink stole.

    1. I literally am going to wear that dress out - work, gender reveal, rehearsal dinner, Christmas pictures and still going.

      The location was beautiful and more pictures don't even begin to do it justice!
