Another Fab (and Shab) Wedding Weekend

Posted by TEAM PARKER at 5:47 PM 1 comments Links to this post
We survived another crazy fun wedding weekend, but that coupled with the 4th of July, has kept us recovering for several days.

Congratulations to Cyndi and Trae Schultz on your recent nuptials...and what a great celebration!  JP and I started it off on Friday with all of the guys from the wedding party over at the casa.  Let me just say, things get a bit rowdy with a bunch of guys together, kickin' the party off at 9 am on a Friday morning--I can only imagine what the bachelor party trip was like in Vegas.  Then we headed out to the Salt Lick in Driftwood for rehearsal dinner at Thurman's Mansion.  We love the atmosphere at Salt Lick, but had never been to an event at Thurman's Mansion--what a great place for events!  I could also picture a beautiful indoor/outdoor wedding here.

Saturday took JP to lunch with the grroomsmen at Iron Cactus, so Reese and I met up with all the grandparents for brunch at Taverna--one of my faves!  Who doesn't love delish italian fare and $1 mimosas...I mean, can't beat it!  We decided to not take Reese to the wedding with us, so she stayed with the Beverly's again.  I think Reed and Chase are beginning to think she is their little sister...they are so stinkin' cute with her!

There was quite a bit of worry on how the weather would turn out after a full week of rain, but it turned out just perfect.  And thankfully that hurricane gave us some action, because otherwise it probably would have been 100 degrees and miserable.  After a beautiful ceremony, I began sipping on Sweet Leaf Tea and vodka out of a mason jar and didn't put it down all night---yummy!  The venue, Vista West Ranch, was a perfect backdrop for a Texas Vintage/Shabby Chic affair and all of the details dovetailed perfectly.  We left Reese behind on this one, knowing that one of our fave Austin bands was playing and knowing how loud and rowdy things could get.  If you've never heard (and seen) LC Rocks, you should!  They are an 80s cover band that never disappoints.  And let me tell you...they live their work...check them out!

they passed out these awesome sunglasses when LC Rocks started singing "I wear my sunglasses at night..." and I've been wearing them ever since.
Cyndi and Trae, I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon...see you soon!
