Another of the planned events for the weekend wedding was “Beach Activities”
A family friend graciously hosted the event at their pool house and allowed for easy beach access for the day.
Some guests enjoyed the pool.
Others were spotted in hats and movie star sunglasses, (the Clinton Wedding has nothing on this bunch!!)
Outdoor shower and putting green.
Organized Sport of the day was Liberty Ball, think bocce ball on the beach.
and let the games begin…
Some officials kept score..
while others kept a cold one in the hands of the players
there were bathing beauties spotted on the beach
competition was tough but our hometown girls made it to the final 4
but they were up against a dangerous duo, father of the bride and
it was a close game
but in the end…
the guys won…
The Final Four, (did the girls let them win? we’ll never know..I say rematch at the next wedding!!
all in all it was a great day at the beach!
Now I know normal people take pictures of other people, but sorry folks I’m a chef and in the words of food networks, Alton Brown (I’m here for the food) haha!!
A Mexican themed evening was a huge hit and a favorite cuisine of the bride and groom to be. Good choice it was all delicious!! Whole roasted red snapper with salsa verde, black beans and shredded pork, fresh corn salad and more..
Tortilla Bar set up in the kitchen was quite a hit, with queso and assorted toppings.
Sorry if these pictures are a little out of focus, did I mention they were serving Margaritas too, hence the blurry picture!
I did manage to get a few family shots in too, here the bride and groom to be were having a song preformed for them by those crazy family cousins, (every family has them!! and we love them)
A day trip to Charleston proved to be a sweet experience, with our first stop at the Charleston Candy Kitchen.
Old City Market is an open air market with local vendors showcasing their goods. Running from the waterfront to the main building Market Hall.
Amazing baskets crafted from sweet grass are woven before you eyes. A tradition handed down from African slaves. Well worth the money.
Time for lunch @ Sticky Fingers
Lots of great Charleston Restaurant to choose from…
and lots of sights to see…
