Matt and Jennifer are two of my co-workers at WALB. I’ve only known them since I began working there in January, but they’re already great friends. Jennifer’s inspiring work ethic and Matt’s random “make-you-wanna-burst-out-laughing” comments are definitely a couple of the reasons why I miss working in the Albany newsroom.
Last month, a couple other co-workers threw Matt and Jen an engagement party. Despite the 108534239872 degree “Georgia in June” sticky, face-melting, weather, we all had a blast! Too bad I didn’t know it was a pool party, or I would have shown up in my swimsuit completely shame-free (I’ve put on a few pounds lately and I’m blaming that on being married. 😉 ).
The happy couple!
Someone made some margaritas that were to die for. Ben, one of our news anchors, almost got trampled when he tried to walk off with the cooler. Wonder if that would have made breaking news that night? 😉
And check out that awesome monogrammed beer caddy one of our producers carried around! Me wants one for my birthday…which just so happens to coincide with the start of football season.
Matt is an avid cigar smoker. He’s been teaching me all there is to know about cigars, and I’ve been loving every minute of it. I’ve even learned how to blow smoke rings!
Ah man, posting this next photo makes me very hungry. That food was delish!
This one’s for my co-workers. You’ll only get it if you’ve ever fallen for it. And I have about a million times…
Time to open gifts and eat cake!
Matt, a fellow University of Georgia graduate, loved our gift. At least I’m assuming so by the many enthusiastic expressions he made as Jennifer opened it.
Congratulations Matt and Jennifer! Chris and I can’t wait to celebrate with you at your wedding next month!
Btw, if you are a fan of Elle Golden Photography on Facebook, you would have seen these photos before anyone else. So go add me if you want the inside scoop on all things Elle Golden!
