Well hello there! It has been a long 10 days since we last talked, and I have a lot to say! I have spent the last two weeks gearing up for my best friends wedding, and it could not have been any more perfect. I am going to break up some posts (wedding, food lately, etc.) so today you are going to get a bachelorette weekend recap!
It all started on Memorial Day weekend when 18 girls headed to Newport, RI for the weekend! We drove up early Saturday, and decorated the house before the bride arrived!
The weekend was a nautical themed, and we hung cute decor all over the house we rented! The maid of honor, Kristina did an awesome job at making everyone (yes, all 18 of us) welcome bags.
Chelsea arrived and we quickly got ready for some time at the beach while we all caught up!
It was a little chilly, but the beach was still pretty! We brought some beers and snacks and hung around talking for a while!
Once we got back to the house, we ordered some pizza for dinner and got ready for our first night out! Chelsea wanted us all to wear black (she wore white!) We had nautical themed jello shots too!
It was hard to take pictures of 18 girls at once, so I don’t have many….but I have a lot of my closest UNH friends. Chelsea was my college roommate and we have been best friends for a while now.
It was so nice to have the girls all there celebrating Chelsea (we missed you Christie!) It felt like old times and I know Chelsea felt like it too!
It was a really fun and late night and we spent it dancing away and singing! It was really the perfect first night!
The second day was jam packed, so I am thankful that I woke up feeling good! We had plans to get ready and head to a winery for a tasting…We all had cute shirts to wear that said “crew” and tattoos!
Oh yeah, and bloody mary’s. Always.
Thanks to Paige for letting me photograph your arm, mine got all messed up after I stuck a dry paper towel to it, ha!
The winery was absolutely beautiful and it was SO nice out!
We went to Greenvale Vineyards and they were so accommodating with all of us. Our host made it so fun, and we got such a kick out of her and how she would pour herself some wine each time she tried a new bottle!
After the tasting, we got to buy some bottles and picnic by the vineyard and enjoy the weather. It was amazing!
We stopped for sandwiches on our way home for lunch, as we had late dinner plans. Once we freshened up, we changed to head into town for a sailboat cruise! The weather did not work in our favor, but it was still a blast!
As soon as we got off shore, it was raining and we all got soaked. BUT, we had unlimited beer and champagne, so we were completely fine (if you know what I mean!)
Despite the rain, it was a blast!
When we got back on shore, it was really raining and since we were already wet…we didn’t care! We headed to dinner at a local Mexican spot and got seated at our 9PM reservation!
It was a great night, but after a long day and lots of food…most of us headed home to call it a night!
It was the most fabulous weekend celebrating the most amazing friend!
Chelsea’s wedding recap will be soon, I promise!
