Where in the World Wednesday - Memphis, TN

This week, I'm in Memphis, Tennessee for Classy in Philadelphia's Where in the World Wednesday! We went there last May for my friend Cristin's wedding. IT WAS AWESOME!

We got there just in time for the rehearsal dinner! Afterward, we went out for a bit and checked out Beale Street. Let's just say it was fun for visiting once or twice but don't know if that would be our usual hangout if we lived there! We made the best of it and had a few beverages...obviously....
The bride's family had left us tickets for a tour of Graceland and for the infamous BBQ Festival which was going on that weekend! We of course checked out both! Here is a room inside of Elvis' home!
Then we headed to the BBQ festival to check it out. People come from all over to compete in the contest. We had fun people watching and tasting the good stuff!
We headed back to Beale Street to check out a place called Silky O'Sullivans for this special bucket of drink! Ha! It was Miller Lite, Sangria, Rum and Champagne. Surprisingly, it was really good!
We headed back to get ready for the amazing wedding that was ahead! Check this out! Their reception was at the Peabody so everyone stayed there too. It was a gorgeous venue and everything was done to a tee! Simply perfection!
The happy couple!!!
We have a habit of being the last to leave wedding receptions and always going out afterwards! It is so fun though. Funny enough, we went out after their reception and when we got back in, the bride and groom were walking out to go to the airport for their honeymoon. Needless to say, we had a great time the whole weekend!
What a fun trip! We had a blast and were sad to leave on Sunday!

Thanks for stopping by for our little weekend tour of Memphis!
