Derby Party Hats

Several weeks ago, I posted about a Kentucky Derby theme Rehearsal Dinner we'd been invited to attend in Jacksonville. This past weekend the party went down. When we weren't engaged with wedding related events Friday and Saturday nights, we were sitting poolside at my sister-in-law's house in Jacksonville, soaking up the sun, and feasting on the next great meal, including that low country boil.

Friday night was Kentucky Derby night at a local country clubhouse in celebration of the upcoming marriage of Tristan and Jessica, a marvelous young couple. I've known Tristan since he was two years old and to see him all grown up on the eve of his marriage was wonderful. I remember the heavy, warm air, the lush green vegetation, the smiles of very happy people the mint juleps and derby pie. Oh, and of course, the hats.....


  1. So much fun and so happy that you flew all the way from one coast to the other to join us in our celebration to Jessica and Tristan as they begin their life together as Mr. and Mrs!

  2. Why, I do believe y'all look like you're from the South!
