If all I blog about is weddings, is there any real proof that I do anything else on the weekends?
2011-2012 has become the season for weddings for my best friends, and one Clayton Kelley was no exception. I was a groomswoman (groomsmaid?) and it was, well, pretty much the best.
Clayton and I buddied up as camp counselors many, many summers ago. We first became friends over chow mein. (It’s a long story.) The next summer we took some of the coolest high schoolers in history on a kayaking trip to Missouri and this happened, which probably/definitely sealed the deal on forever-friendship.
Last year when I met Clayton’s then-girlfriend, Lydia, I told Clayton that if something happened and for some idiotic reason he didn’t ask her to marry him, I was keeping her for a friend and ditching him. It wasn’t really a joke. That’s how wonderful we all think she is.
And so the Kelley-Crawford Wedding Weekend happened in Austin, Texas last month. And we all had a really, really good time.
Being a groomswoman was kind of the best of both worlds. This bridal party could not have been even a little bit more fun.
You should know that they had a really fantastic wedding cake. (You might’ve already seen it on CBS. Or a thousand other places on the internet. That’s kinda my fault.)
(And a final p.s.: I left these Marek Alaine handmade lovelies in Austin for them. That’s how much these two love their respective cities and states.)
