Music, Wedding, and Iggy day!

This weekend was jam packed. We started off with a Thursday night rockfest! Our friend Lissa Bruster works for a company that was sponsoring the "Donate Life Rocks" concert, to promote organ and tissue donation. Therefore, we recieved tickets to attend the event which included live music by EVE 6 and Alex Band (with the singer from "The Calling"). We all had a blast! Not only were we able to get up close, but we spent the evening with close friends. Thursday night ended and it was back home to pack and rest up for our Road trip to Chapel Hill on Friday morning. Dr. Andrew Huang would be married in less han 24 hours! We carpooled to Chapel hill with Faith and Chris, and I thought the ride would be filled with chatter and laughing, but instead I feel asleep and so did Ian... so, we were "THOSE" people. After arriving in Chapel Hill we checked into the hotel (The Marriott Courtyard) and upacked. We all got dressed in our formal attire, and went on our way. The wedding was beautiful! Saira was stunning, and Andrew was very relaxed! The ceremony was outside and the weather was perfect! The Carolina Inn was a perfect location. The building was very grand, yet had a historical feel to it.
We then moved indoors for the reception. There was so much food I left the place stuffed. We had what must have been a 8 course meal, topped off with wedding cake and a coffee bar! We now welcome Saira to Richmond, and cannot wait to show her around town!
After the wedding festivitites were over, Andrew and Saira rode away into the darkness by horse and carriage (so romantic!).

Sunday was a cleaning day for Ian and I, so things started out pretty usual. However, today we had planned a special playdate with Christines dog Cooper (another Italian Greyhound). They both came over and it was great to see Beamer and Cooper play together. There are not many Italian Greyhounds in the area, so it was wonderful to get both of them together.

The weekend was perfect, yet exhausting. Both Ian and I start classes tomorrow, and have a 4 day work week, then its off to Charlotte for the VT vs. ECU season kickoff game. GO HOKIES!! Stay posted!!!!
