Andrea's Wedding Weekend

This weekend we went to Dallas for the weekend as our last getaway for the summer, since we won't be going out of town until the weekend of my birthday. We went to Dallas for our good friend Andrea's wedding on Saturday afternoon. We actually left friday morning to start the weekend...we went to one of our favorite places to eat La Madelines for lunch, then went to a few stores to do some shopping at, checked into our hotel, did some more shopping, hung out at the pool/hot tub at the hotel, then ate dinner at the restaurant in our hotel. On Saturday we did some more shopping and then went back to the hotel to start getting ready for our wedding that afternoon. It was SO hot that afternoon for the wedding, but we did survive, the wedding was very sweet and Andrea looked absolutely gorgeous, we spent sometime at the reception and then said our goodbyes to the happy couple. After we left the reception we headed back to the hotel to change out of our dress clothes and went to dinner and to hang out at Dave & Buster's for Josh's (Jake's brother's birthday celebration). On Sunday we headed back towards home and made one stop in Fort Worth at the mall and did a little bit more shopping and then went to eat a quick lunch before heading the rest of the way home.

All in all we had a great weekend, enjoyed seeing two good friends finally get married, had a much needed break from work/life in Abilene, and got alot of new stuff for our apartment and some stuff we both needed. But it was definitely good to be home :)

But here is our weekend in pictures, enjoy!

The happy bride & groom with their wedding party at their wedding reception

the pretty centerpieces at the reception...mirror glass tiles, white tea light votives, pink cherry blossoms inside cylinder vases filled with water, and pink rose petals on the table.

The pink chocolate fondue fountain at the wedding reception

Stephen's groom cake...He is a huge car guy, so it was definitely fitting for him

Andrea's pretty pink cake...two square levels, two round levels, with black decor & diamond rhinestones, and big "R" initail for Rogers

being introduced for the first time as Mr. & Mrs. Stephen Rogers

LOVED her dress...the bottom part below the flowers tears off so the dress becomes short to dance in at the reception.
