b & free's magical matrimony



This weekend we flew into ole Tejas to witness the marriage of our beloved friends, brooke and freeland. And, also to witness their 2 great danes walking down aisle as flowergirl and ring bearer (wish i had a picture of THAT!) The dogs were outfitted in huge wreaths with the vet. walking them down the aisle! It was one of the coolest things i've seen at a wedding. But enough about the dogs already.

When Adam & I flew into Texas, it was like flying home. It felt like we'd been on a long trip to Erie and now we should be driving to our old rent house! It was weird to stay in a hotel in Waco! But we love Erie (minus the lack of GOOD mexican food) and feels more home-like everyday. It was stinking hot in Texas, too. We are not used to all that crazy heat. Hace mucho calor!

I got to spend a lot of Saturday with the old roommates and friends of Waco, while Adam pulled groomsmen duty. I love sitting on the couch next to girls who know you so stinking well and talking about meaningful life things one second and doing an imitation of a roommate's dance moves the next second. In addition to seeing Lindsey, Holly, Haley, and Bethany, I also got to meet Caroline's fiance!

We like him. He is the milk to her shake.

The wedding was at this old mansion in Waco and was completely beautiful. I wouldn't have changed anything. We are so glad we got to fly in for it! Also, we were on the same flight as Brooke and Free the next morning! Now, some might think that'd be awkward, right? "Hey guys.... hows the honeymoon going?" But not with Brooke and Free- we ate breakfast with them in the Houston airport, even. We love those guys.

Now the pictures you've been waiting for...

I totally understand what you mean about hanging out with friends who know you so well they're like family. It's hard to be away but it makes those reunions that much more meaningful! Glad you had a good time in TX!

Beautiful wedding pictures. SO SORRY we missed it! I know you and all those Texas girls had a good time though. Do you consider yourself a "Texas Girl" now?

Oh goodness! I remember flying back for the first time last year and it was ... sad? Weird? So strange that someplace that was home for so long can become a place to visit. And really, who ever thought one would be excited about visiting Waco? Alas, it is one of my fav places to be ... Adam looks like he is prepping for winter in the north ...
