A bunch of iPhone photos from a shared photo stream can't possibly do Molly's gorgeous wedding justice but this fun weekend deserves a quick recap! (You can see pics from her shower and bachelorette earlier this year HERE)
Rob's leave was only approved Friday through Sunday so Thursday I flew down to Clearwater Beach on my own and headed straight to the tiki bar to meet up with Molly, Maggie, and Anna who had already arrived. We had drinks, lounged in the sun, and it was awesome to have some low key time to catch up before everyone arrived. Thursday night we had sunset drinks at the rooftop bar of the Pier 60 Hotel and then did dinner at the Brown Boxer.
Friday morning I went for a quick run, had breakfast at the hotel and headed straight to the pool. Weddings are so much fun because everyone coming into town is so excited and just ready to celebrate the bride and groom. Rob got in around 3pm and I headed to the rehearsal with the other bridesmaids. After the rehearsal, Molly's parents generously hosted a welcome barbecue for everyone at the Clearwater Yacht Club. The location was gorgeous and I loved seeing and catching up with everyone who was in town.
I knew Saturday was going to be a packed day for me so I told Rob to make a tee time and go golfing in the morning. Unfortunately the airlines lost his luggage and while his suitcase made it back to the hotel, his golf clubs never did. I grabbed an iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts (directly across the street - score!) and then headed up to the bridal suite to get my hair done. It was a relaxing day of drinking mimosas and doing hair/makeup and reminded me of college days getting ready together in the tridelt house. When it was time, we took the trolley over to the Carlouel Yacht Club to finish getting ready and take pictures before the ceremony.
The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and like I said these pictures can't do it justice! We ate, drank, danced, and celebrated Molly and Shawn until the very end! Every detail was well thought-out and I loved seeing all of her signature touches.
Luckily, we booked an evening flight home on Sunday so we were able to spend the day on the beach. A couple of rounds of piña coladas with the newlyweds was the perfect way to end the weekend. I am so so happy for Molly and Shawn and so honored to have been a part of their special day!
