Beautiful Texas Wedding

This weekend we went to Texas for a dear family friend's wedding.
Texas, that sounds like a long ways away, but it was actually only about five hours from our house.

 

Here we are at the hotel ready to head out to the ranch for the wedding.
{Oh my goodness...look at how pregnant {huge!!!} I am!}

Grandpa, Grandma and the Little Lady.



The ceremony was in a meadow on their ranch.
So pretty!


The ceremony was very nice, short and sweet.
{Poor John Wayne spent the ceremony in the Suburban with one very upset Little Lady who couldn't sit still or be quiet.  Bless him.}


Brilliant...a bounce house for the kids!!!



It was so cute, they had a whole little area set up for the kids, complete with several adorable kids table and chairs sets.

I'm disappointed that this is the only pic I snapped of the reception area.  This was hands down the best reception I've been to.  I figured that they'd have tents set up, but they didn't, they just had everything set up out in the meadow and that's what made it so wonderful.  The wedding wasn't until 7PM, so by reception time it was starting to get dark and was just absolutely gorgeous...candle lit tables under the Texas stars.


Love how the cakes were displayed!


And the cake was sooo yummy!


My Mom and one of her best friends, the Mother of the Bride.


You would have thought that the bounce house was the highlight of the wedding for the Little Lady...oh no...DANCING!
She literally would have danced every.single.song and her Daddy was a good sport and danced several with her, but well you see, she's heavy!

I'm disappointed that the one picture I snapped of the dance floor didn't turn out.  They had white lights draped in the trees and then three of the "hula hoop chandeliers" {all of you Pinners out there know what I'm talking about!}.


I've been looking forward to this wedding all summer long and it definitely lived up to my expectations!

Congratulations Amy and Ryan!!!

Oh my gosh, I love it! Looks like she must have pinned herself a wedding, so much of that I've seen on Pinterest. How fun for everyone!!!

Glad y'all had a good trip!

You look great, girl!
Yes, of course you look preggy, but hey, it's a packaged deal. ;)
