A few weekends ago, Chris and I traveled back to Michigan for a dear friend's wedding. We spent time with great friends, went to old high school hangouts, and even ate at The Woodshop where Guy Fieri taped his most recent episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, just this last week!
Here are a few shots that a friend took, as she happened to be there at the same time.
Apparently, he spray paints his face on the wall at every restaurant he's been to. Another little piece of history for you, Clarkston. This is also a popular hangout for Kid Rock, as his primary residence is in our hometown. Many local residents have gotten used to seeing him around town, hanging at our bars and restaurants. He's been living there for roughly 10 years, so he's not a celebrity anymore, he's a resident.
Back to the wedding.
It was held at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club- gorgeous- with magical little touches. It was kind of a high school reunion of sorts for Chris and I, and we loved every minute of it. The bride was stunning, as expected.
She was SO excited to see Mini Freed in her pink!
The cake was amazing. Since I can remember, Casey has always been a huge fan of Shark Week. It just so happens that the wedding was the same week as the annual TV marathon. In addition to her love for the series, Casey and her husband went cage diving in South Africa a year ago. I LOVE their incorporation of fun into this sophisticated wedding!
Later on in the night, we went bowling downstairs in the yacht club. Yes, bowling at a wedding.
Not much more needs to be said, really.
All in all, we had a fabulous trip back "home" and can envision ourselves living back there one day. (A long time in the future, after the Air Force has had their way with us.)
Bye, we'll see you again soon, Mitten!
