I love weddings. I look at wedding websites online because I love seeing what people do. The fads, the styles, the traditions (old and new)…so much fun! I took a ton of photos over the weekend and wanted to share just a few of them with everyone. It was such a beautiful wedding, probably one of the best I’ve ever been to.
While the bride and groom left for pictures the guests enjoyed cocktail hour. There were drinks set up in the old general store. I loved the idea of a cocktail hour afterward. It’s a great way for people to socialize, have a snack and not be famished waiting for dinner.
And waiters walked around with appetizers while everyone socialized in the yard. My favorite appetizer were the jalapeno poppers wrapped in bacon. Oh MY! Those were fantastic! Smokey and creamy. Loved it.
The sausage was the best. It was so spicy and delicious. I ate waaay too much. I was stuffed to the brim and couldn’t imagine ever eating again. And then I ate cake. They did the cake cutting. I had a small piece of the wedding cake and a small piece of the groom’s cake (red velvet) and a glass of champagne for the toast.
I joined the group for one song. I don’t listen to country music so I have no idea what song it was. It was clearly a hit because the whole place was on the dance floor and everyone knew the moves (but me) but I did it. And it was a blast!
I was sad to leave the ranch. It was such a cool little hideaway–truly an escape from the “modern” world. As a city girl it was a fun experience for me.
On Sunday we drove to Austin and then flew to Dallas. We had a few hours to kill so we sat in the Cantina Laredo. We split some guacamole and I had a beer (from Portland no less!). It was one of the funnest trips I’ve had in a long time. It was cool stepping out into another world and explore different cultures.
