I am going to do a series of posts about our wedding weekend, starting with my bridesmaid's luncheon! I knew from the start that I wanted it to be simple yet special. I wanted to let these girls know how much they mean to me and how thankful I was to have them there with me for my wedding day. I have a group of 9 best friends that have been together since we were toddlers, and all our moms are best friends too. I knew I wanted all those girls there to celebrate with me, as well as all the amazing women in the Davis family that I would soon be a part of.
When deciding on a location, I quickly had it narrowed down to about 3 spots [being that Greenville is small and doesn't have a huge variety of choices]. However, when my cousin offered to host it at her amazing restaurant in Tarboro, NC my decision was quickly made. She owns On The Square, a small restaurant in downtown Tarboro that has made an impressive name for itself all over North Carolina. I have heard of people traveling from all over to eat here!
Quick background on my cousin, Inez: She was the manager of the restaurant on the top floor of the World Trade Center. Her boyfriend (who is now her husband) was the bartender at the same restaurant. They were both home in Tarboro on 9/11 for a family wedding [thank you, Lord]. After losing all their friends and co-workers, they decided to move back home to Tarboro to be closer to family and open their own restaurant.
Since Tarboro is 45 minutes from Greenville, we decided it would be fun to rent a bus so that we could all travel there together. Mom and I decided on a handful of brunch items that the girls could order from. I ordered french toast, one of my all-time favorites, but I wish I could have had one of each! The huevos rancheros were a huge hit!
