My Best Friend's Wedding

2010's whirlwind of activity for our family kicked off with my best friend's wedding in July. She got married in Austin at a really sweet, pretty venue called Casa Blanca on Brushy Creek. In fact, her amazing wedding planning skills and eye for details were featured in Style Me Pretty's blog, check out the Austin Wedding post here

Ivy Weddings, from our favorite family photographers who did Cade's 4 month pics and baptism photos ( captured Cade in his precious ringbearer outfit. Luckily Amanda was the perfect picture of bliss and laid back bride and loved the cute things Cade and the other ringbearers did as they made their way down the aisle. (Thanks Grammy for becoming an impromptu member of the wedding party as you walked him down the aisle! Also special kudos to Grammy for rigging a velcro baby-size tie that perfectly matched my bridesmaid dress!)

Amanda & Kris also had the genius idea of having a photobooth at the wedding. TNT Photobooths was amazing, they had set up a table nearby so guests could cut & paste their pics into a photo album and write a message to the newlyweds as a sign-in book. Um, way better & more fun to look back on than the satin, ribbon tied, lined guest book we had at the wedding. The photobooth totally kicked my traditional feather pen's ass! The killer part I didn't realize was that a week after the wedding they emailed us a link to our pics, so we could download them ourselves. Thanks, TNT photobooth for the cool digitals!

We had a total blast at the wedding, Amanda was gorgeous and Austin was a blast! I loved that since Amanda is my oldest friend, I got to reconnect with some of the people she's kept in touch with since elementary school. For whatever reason our 5th grade class got pretty close and we all have amazing memories of elementary school. Anytime we run into each other we catch up on the other kids we went to school with and crack up at the "remember whens". I'm fascinated by things that stick in people's minds as memories, so catching up was a really good time.

After we did her wedding, we came back to Dallas for a couple of days and then headed out to San Diego for our family vaca... more pics to be posted on that. Sorry the blog is jumping around a little, since we left for her wedding life has been a mile a minute with trips to Calfornia followed immediately by school starting and daycare germs and family sick days and another trip to California, to today. So... hang on the ride as I catch up on my posts. Eventually I'll go back and post-date so things appear chronologically. For now, enjoy the pics:)
