Purpose: To attend Donovan and Cynthia's wedding
Our friends Donovan and Cynthia were married this weekend at The 1927 Lake Lure Inn and Spa. Gabe and I drove to Lake Lure on Saturday to attend their wedding and reception.
Fortunately, we left ourselves plenty of time for the drive. We should have had a few hours between arriving and the beginning of the wedding, but we ran into heavy traffic in Greensboro. They were paving and had blocked off all but one lane of traffic. We still arrived with plenty of time to get dressed and ride the trolley over to the wedding site.
The wedding was at a gazebo, across the Lake from the 1927 Lake Lure Inn. It was very pretty! I didn't get a chance to take too many photos during the ceremony (my camera was misbehaving!), but I made up for it at the reception. We took over 600 photos! We have been spending a lot of time going through the photos so that we can really narrow them down to the best ones.
Parts of Dirty Dancing were filmed at the hotel, and they are very proud of their connection. Gabe and I were amused that one of the songs from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack popped up on our random iPod selection as we were driving up to the hotel. Ha!
