The primary reason Mr. GMET & I ventured to Texas this past weekend was to celebrate the wedding of my fabulous college-friend, Carolyn. We’ve shared so much over the past 10 years and I was honored to be a part of her big day. She made a beautiful bride, of course, and we had terrific fun celebrating all weekend. Congratulations Carolyn & Drew!
The weekend kicked off with the rehearsal dinner featuring BBQ (when in Rome, right?) and sweet cupcakes. All the flowers and decor were of the DIY variety, including the lush bouquets. And as part of the wedding party, I must say we were all fierce, but those groomsman where the ones who were so money.
While the wedding party got started with BBQ, we started toasting our bride one night early at Mi Tierra, a 24-7 authentic Mexican restaurant decked out in holiday decoration year-round. The bright, shiny atmosphere matched that of our group, a combination of bridal party and house party.
We celebrated by hoisting traditional margaritas toward those shiny stars and celebrating Carolyn’s last few nights of Miss-dom. Everything from the food to the drinks (to the shots) were delicious and were only improved by the company and the entertainment.
That’s right. Walking musicians. Mariachi, I suppose? They were quite insistent from the moment we sat down until
after we already paid $6 for a song the moment we left that they should serenade our table. After shooing them a few times we finally had them play a requested “wedding song.” And play they did.
Congrats again, Carolyn & Drew! And thanks for hosting such a lovely weekend.
