Good Days With The Mays

Personal blog for Jess and C.J. May

Here Comes The Bride!

My blog has taken a backseat to the eventful last 10 days. But now I’m back and I can’t wait to share our experiences and pictures with you! Let’s start with Friday, November 18th. C.J. and I got off work and drove 5.5 hours from Gulf Shores, AL to Gainesville, FL. We arrived around midnight to the amazing Airbnb that my mom rented for herself, my aunt and uncle (Kim and John), and C.J. and I.

The next morning, I went to a cute little cabin near the wedding venue to get ready for my cousin Sydney’s wedding! I was a personal attendant for Sydney, which was fun because she was a personal attendant in my wedding. Sydney and her husband, Dylan, got married at The Barn at Rembert Farms in Alachua, FL. The venue was gorgeous; they had a cabin for us girls to get ready in, an outdoor ceremony spot, a barn for cocktail hour, and another barn for the reception.

The outdoor ceremony was beautiful and very sweet; it was easy to tell how excited Sydney and Dylan were to tie the knot. After watching the couple get announced as husband and wife for the first time, the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour that included a giant charcuterie board inside of wagon. Pretty soon it was time for the reception. Sydney and Dylan had a taco bar for dinner and it was a big hit. The night continued with thoughtful toasts, funny stories, and a full dance floor. The party came to an end around 9 pm when we sent the newlyweds off with a tunnel of bubbles.

The rest of that Saturday night was spent at the Airbnb. We chatted, looked through pictures from the wedding, and I attempted to get everyone to download the game “Wordscapes” because it’s my current addiction. If any of you readers feel compelled to download Wordscapes, do so at your own risk. It’s been less than 2 weeks, I’m on level 440, and I can’t stop.

Anyways, on Sunday morning, we all said our goodbyes and C.J. and I drove the 5.5 hours back to our condo. We arrived home around 4pm, and while C.J. chose to spend his evening relaxing, I decided to go walk on the beach for a couple of hours to capture the sunset. I hope you enjoy looking at the Alabama sunsets as much as I do.

Until next time,

Jess May
