the wedding

Our first stop on our vacation extravaganza was Litchfield Beach, SC for Jessica and Travis' wedding which both Alexander and I were a part of. If you remember I helped Travis surprise Jessica at school with his proposal. Well it turns out I got to be part of another wedding surprise. Becky Castleforte, my former teammate and Jessica's first year mentor at school wasn't able to come to the wedding... until the last minute. She called me after she wasn't able to get through to Mrs. Paukovich (Jessica's mom) and asked me to help her get ahold of her to find out if she could still come down. After the three of us talked we decided it would be fun for to surprise Jessica by having Becky show up at the rehearsal dinner. Her timing that evening couldn't have been more appropriate...

Friday morning the girls all met at Stox & Co. for hair and make-up (and Mimosas...yum!!)
Next, it was back to the
Deetjen House to start getting dressed and ready for pictures.

Buttoning Jessica's dress got a little crazy, but Della (the wedding coordinator) came to the rescue with a crochet hook.

Jessica's mom ("Miss Bernie" to The Bugman). She stuffed her purse with a Hotwheel and M&Ms before the wedding to bribe Bugman into coming down the aisle. It worked like a charm.

A few finishing touches and...


The wedding was beautiful, and the reception was pretty amazing. It was held at the Litchfield Plantation. The plantation was gorgeous, the food was great, I rocked my speech (thanks to a glass or four of champagne), and we had an all around great time! If the wedding pictures are posted online I will post the link, but I haven't talked to Jessica, as we've played some phone tag since they returned home from JAMAICA yesterday.
