At the beginning of September, we had the high honor of celebrating the wedding of two dear friends. We've known Anthony since college, where he and Ian spent five years of late nights in studio, and countless football and basketball games in face paint. They spent a summer interning and surfing in LA together, and when they graduated in a terrible economy, Anthony connected Ian to Sasaki. They have been friends and colleagues for almost a decade, and neither of us would be who we are today without him. We met Sara (with no h because h's are ew!) through Anthony after we moved to Boston. They weren't dating at the time, but we like to believe we already knew they would end up together. Sara is a fun, wonderful, and thoughtful friend, and she's kind of a big deal at Google doing lots of important things that go way over my head.
Thanks to their wedding, we headed to Georgia for our first real trip to the deep South, where our first meal was Chick-fil-a at the airport in honor of Sara. We met the rest of the wedding party at the rehearsal; after, we headed to a local restaurant for dinner, signature cocktails (The Foxy Lady and the Fantastic Mr. Fox), and wedding-themed mad libs. We had so much fun hearing Fox and Sara's childhood stories, catching up with old friends, and meeting new ones.
The wedding took place the next afternoon at Sara's family's estate, and the old horse farm was an incredible backdrop for a classy yet casual affair full of Southern charm and hospitality, down to the tiniest details (like bug repellent, and lawn games during the cocktail hour). Dinner was a delicious Southern barbecue, and the live band was fantastic. We had such a wonderful time, and are so glad we get to share life with both of them!

And a shout-out to our good friend Janet, who met us for brunch on the way to the airport, where I had perhaps the best chicken fried steak biscuit and cheesy grits of my life. So thank you Janet, for taking time to see us, and also for the delicious brunch recommendation. We miss you!
