Brittany and Brant, who we became great friends with in Birmingham, came to stay with us and then we drove up to Asheville together.
The drive itself is beautiful, but Asheville is too! It's an interesting town, to say the least. We enjoyed people watching as we drove around the city to kill some time before going into the church - you never know what you'll see in Asheville. Plus, evidently there are a lot of really good vegetarian and vegan restaurants there! We will have to make another trip back so we can actually spend some time in the city and explore all the culture it has.
Brant, Brittany, me, and Paul.
Brittany and I had very similar dresses! It was unplanned but so funny!

Evidently photobooths are the new thing at weddings! We had fun with it!
This was our little group!

I love weddings! They're so much fun. Mark and Emily both looked wonderful, and the wedding was beautiful. We had a great time reuniting with our Birmingham friends, and can't wait for the next reunion!
On a side note, we learned about the "freegan" movement that is forming and spreading in Asheville. Basically, 1 - don't buy anything, 2 - don't support conventional economy, 3 - don't work. To read more about this
