Wedding Weekend: Road Trip Essentials

We’re going on an adventure! Our wonderful friends Kevin and Emily are getting married this weekend (3/19/16) in Columbia, South Carolina. I get so excited for trips that I usually research so much (on Pinterest) as soon as I can for packing lists, travel essentials – the whole lot!

However, this time I was less prepared. (We leave tomorrow!) That is why I am putting together this packing guide for a wedding weekend away.

Now we just have to take Nyla girl to Misty Glen Kennel and we’ll be all set!DSCN0517
