Courtney got hitched!

What.

A.

Weekend.

It was a busy 3 days, but all of it was worth it because this lady is now a "Mrs"!

We kicked the wedding weekend off with a perfectly girly luncheon at Into My Garden Tea Room in downtown Plano.  I've lived most of my life in Plano, and yet I had never been here. The food was phenom. I will be back.

After lunch, we all got pedicures and then walked to the rehearsal at Old Red Museum, which is where the wedding and reception was held.

The rehearsal dinner was at Texas Land and Cattle and after the dinner we all went out to a local bar for some drinks and what eventually turned into a dance party:
Thanking every body for coming.
Shots and later, a dance party
The day of the wedding was hectic and before we knew it, it was time to get Courtney in her dress.

That's my head poking out behind her


All of us with Courtney before we put her in the dress.  I guess this picture is out of order. 
Right before the ceremony, they exchanged cards and held hands while hiding behind the wall. Presh!

The wedding was beautiful and the reception was so much fun.  Proof:

The cake:

side note: if my future husband tries to smash cake in my face, divorce papers will be drawn immed.  I will kill him. 
And the newlyweds rode off in their carriage:

I had some pictures I took on my phone after I did her make-up for her bridal portrait session a few months ago.  I couldn't show you before, but here they are:


She truly was a stunning bride and was glowing all weekend.  I hope my wedding (when I'm 80) is just as fabulous.

Now I have exactly 31 days until I fly to Vegas for Kristina's vows.  After her wedding, I better be on a wedding hiatus, so none of my best bishes better get engaged any time soon.  I'm not kidding.

  1. she was a gorgeous bride. love her dress. and you look so sassy and pretty!

    i just realized the other day that i'm pretty sure the next wedding i'll be in will be my own. i think all my BFF's are done getting married. i'll be 80 as well. weddings will probably be obselete by then.

  10. Love that museum! I work at a museum and the weddings that take place there are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen.

  11. I feel the same way about the cake. If I pay someone to fix my face and you smear cake all over it ON PURPOSE I without doubt would KILL you. I will have this talk before nuptials are exchanged to save the man from embarassment!

  15. So . . . I am 30 years old now, and I think that my bridesmaid fury has died down. Because I grew up in the south and people get married young! I've been a bridesmaid six times and I am very happy to announce that I've reached a lull . . . I love attending weddings, but I'm so happy not to be IN them!

  29. she is a gorgeous bride but the real thing that stands out is how sexy you are in that mask! Damn I bet the men folk ask you to keep that on during the act, huh? Will you wear it when you come visit me?

  30. we did the hand holding thing before our ceremony, made me more nervous I think, but the photographer got a picture from the outside, so we are both in the pic, holding hands, but can't see each other because of the door (if that even makes sense)
    gorgeous bride!! (and wedding party)=)
