Gearing Up for Gorham's Bluff

Wedding Weekend Part Two is now in effect. My dear friend Candice is getting married tomorrow! I am SO excited about her venue, Gorham's Bluff, which is an adorable community located in the tiny town of Pisgah, Alabama. This place is the best kept secret around, but I think it's definitely on its way to being discovered - Tara Guerard of Charleston-based Soiree even blogged about it here. Candice's super-sweet fiance Elliott whisked her away for a romantic weekend in March and capped their last night off by dropping to one knee and proposing on the back porch of their cute cottage - you just don't get any more southern than that, folks! I used to work with Candice at the University of Alabama School of Law (I did the events, she did the annual fund) and we made a pretty great team. We were both hired there after some life-changing circumstances, and formed a fast friendship that I have grown to cherish so much. She and I both were known as the ones would "never settle down" and then we got engaged within one month of each other - how's that for irony? So here's to you, Candice - through all our shoulder shimmy's, counselor-patient quizzes and dance sessions in turtleneck sweaters, I couldn't be happier for you and the life you're about to begin tomorrow. Can't wait to celebrate with y'all this weekend!
