It was such a fun weekend, but SUPER busy! Friday night was the rehearsal followed by a small rehearsal dinner at Bene Bene (sadly it is now closed) which means we had some GREAT Italian food. Sorry I don’t really have any pics from that.
Saturday morning I drove out to Arlington to pick up the cupcakes for the wedding at The Red Oven Bakery (sadly this place has also closed so now you’ll never get to experience their greatness). They are the best!
Then I headed up to Frisco to meet up with everyone else and help set up the reception. They had almost all of the tables finished by the time I got there so I helped with the finishing touches and then worked on folding and cutting the programs. I thought the tables turned out really cute…
(that’s my L on the table, LOVE that! I got it as a hostess gift for throwing a baby shower a few years before.)
Saturday night my Dad’s sisters hosted a fajita dinner so that we could get together and have some family time. Here is Dad and his two sisters. I love hanging out with my aunts! Luckily Aunt Cindy lives here so we get to see her often, unfortunately Aunt Leslie lives in North Carolina so we don’t get to see her that often.
It was really good to see the Branches and as always fun to hang with the Sanders, even if Chase and Brice weren’t in town. Since the wedding took place on a Sunday, that made it a impossible for a few of the cousins to come in town. Fortunately, they were represented in spirit (or rather in stick form)!
Here are all the cousins (prom pic style), minus the two cousins on a stick and Jim. Thank goodness Aunt Cindy & Uncle Paul have such a big staircase!
We had a great time at the Sander’s house catching up, enjoying margaritas and eating some great food.
Sunday morning was pretty calm, Beth and I got to just chill at home before heading up to the mall to meet Tiffany & Chrystal to get our makeup done at MAC. That was quite a process. I honestly had NO idea we’d be up there for right at 3 hours. Though, on the plus side we did get to avoid the last minute panic of trying to put together one more table for the reception.
The girls all got ready in the Bridal Suite, which was a Victorian house situated in between the chapel and the reception hall. It gave us all plenty of room to get ready and goof off before the wedding got under way.
Since this post is already getting long, I won’t bore you with more pictures (if we are Facebook friends I’ve got an album of pictures posted you can check out). But I will leave you with this great shot of the Bride & Groom:
Congratulations Scott & Tiffany! We are so happy for you guys. Hope you have a great honeymoon and we will see you when you get back.
