This past weekend David and I made a trip up to Saratoga Springs for one of his best friend’s weddings. It was my first time in Saratoga Springs and I loved the little city that was so full of charm. The streets were lined with grand old Victorian houses and the little downtown area was made up of adorable shops, restaurants, and bars.
On Thursday we got into town and met up with everyone at one of the local bars. It was great to catch up with everyone. On Friday, the day of the wedding, David and I went out and found a cute little place for breakfast, then he was off to see to his groomsman duties. I spent most of the day sleeping off all the beer I’d had the night before and grabbed coffee with the wife of one of the other groomsmen.
The wedding was absolutely beautiful and we had so much fun that I only managed to take one super grainy picture. David has a great, close-knit group of friends and hanging out with them and their significant others is always a great time.
The next morning was rough. I haven’t had that bad of a hangover since New Year’s 2015. I spent most of the night and morning willing my head to stop throbbing and trying not to move. We finally ventured out for food and found a wonderful little spot where I got a hearty breakfast with a side of homemade donuts.
I felt much better after the heavy meal and we headed over to a meet and greet with the bride and groom in their suite. Later David and I went to explore the downtown and found a store that we fell in love with. The owner is an artist that created an adorable little cartoon that David and I both instantly thought looked like Bernie.
David couldn’t leave without picking up some prints. He got the sad looking one since Bernie always has a super depressed look on his face (I swear he is actually a really happy dog) and a happy one to even it out. Plus Bernie loves running around in the yard chasing squirrels and sitting in the sun.
After dinner we headed back over to the bride and groom’s suite for an informal party they were throwing for the few of us left in town. By that point I was done with alcohol for the weekend but it was nice to spend more time with everyone before we all went our separate ways the next day.
The wedding was wonderful, Saratoga Springs was adorable, and we had a wonderful weekend.
