Oy with the poodles already! Nothing fills me with more joy — and FOMO — than the fact that there was a Gilmore Girls reunion this weekend. It's been 8 years since the show ended in 2007, aka it's been way too long since our favorite Stars Hollow residents got together. As someone who followed the show when it originally aired, bought the full box set of DVDs, and then re-watched once it hit Netflix, I am slightly obsessed. (Only slightly!) So the GG reunion at the ATX Festival on June 6 was basically like a dream come true. Sadly, I couldn't be there in person (it sold out almost instantly), so I lived vicariously through the photos on social media.
Lucky for me, there were plenty of amazing photos from the festival to tide me over. Nearly all of the main characters were there: Lauren Graham (Lorelai), Alexis Bledel (Rory), Kelly Bishop (Emily), Jared Padalecki (Dean), Scott Patterson (Luke), Milo Ventimiglia (Jess), Matt Czuchry (Logan), Keiko Agena (Lane), Liza Weil (Paris), and Danny Strong (Doyle). Of course the show's amazing/genius creator Amy Sherman-Palladino was there too! Unfortunately, there was no Melissa McCarthy (Sookie), but hey, she's a busy lady.
Here's a round-up of all the best photos from the Gilmore Girls reunion. Warning: You may feel incredibly nostalgic and find yourself binge-watching the show immediately afterwards... Oh wait, that's not a bad thing at all!
All Of Rory's Exes
This photo is literally perfect. But seriously, it's never been more difficult to decide between Jess, Dean, or Logan.
The Gang's All Here
Danny Strong, aka Doyle, shared this group shot. So many feels!
Paris And Doyle 4Ever
The Yale Daily News power couple still reigns strong.
The Gilmore Girls
If this doesn't warm your heart, you may not actually have one.
The Ultimate Selfie
This picture is EVERYTHING. Something tells me if the show was filmed in present time, Lorelai would definitely own a selfie stick.
So touching! The cast left open a seat for the late Edward Herrmann, aka Richard Gilmore, who sadly passed away in December. Lauren Graham's caption says it all.
Luke And Lorelai
YES. Everything about this photo is the best!
Two Of The Best
In Season 1, these guys were the Gilmore ladies' love interests. (#TeamDean forever!)
Hep Alien Reunion
Best news ever? Everybody's favorite garage band Hep Alien reunited too.
Dean And Lane
Lane was always super supportive of Rory and Dean's relationship. Glad to see that's true IRL too!
Emily Gilmore Takes A Selfie
Look at Kelly Bishop's smile! This rules.
"Independence Inn, Michel Speaking"
This is the only photo I saw of Yanic Truesdale (aka the beloved Michel) being there. Thank goodness! It wouldn't be the same without him.
Stars Hollow's Best
And that's a wrap! Oh, and that Luke's Diner sign in the background is a perfect touch.
