Blair & Lauren's Wedding


I was trying to push this post back as far as I could awaiting pictures from others… but, people are taking too long! I took a new inexpensive camera to the wedding… ummm so inexpensive it didn’t take good pictures!!!... So atleast we can get the ball rolling…

Lauren Fraser married Blair Nutting last weekend. Why is this so important? Lauren has been my friend since we were six years old. Blair has been my friend since we were sixteen years old. Last year Blair took a liking to Lauren… after years of being friends… and now the rest is just plain history!!!

We all went to Horseshoe Bay for the wedding… so beautiful!!! It was more of a high school reunion than anything. Almost our entire group from high school was there! Friday night we did Rehearsal and then the dinner. Blair’s mom is one of my favorite people in the world. She was our teacher in high school and oh my gosh, she is the most old timey sweet lady. We had a blast at the dinner catching up with all of the “adults” from growing up. Lauren’s parents were friends with many people in our town so it seemed like everyone’s parents were there!!! Nick was a little lost getting to meet everyone!

On the wedding day the bridesmaids and house party were all invited to a brunch at the Marriott. Nick went golfing bright and early so he was on his own. Chandra and Michael got there so we had lunch with them at the Marriott before the wedding and got to catch up on pictures of Landry!

Here comes the bride…

This wedding was huge. Nine groomsmen and bridesmaids!!! The preacher began the wedding and as I stood on the podium awaiting to read my bible verse… he seemed to forget me!!! As I stood there just chilling finally James pulled me from behind as we had been forgotten… I was a little annoyed that I looked dumb until the preacher called us back up to the podium at the end!!! Quite entertaining…. The main point is that my friends were married!!! They are so in love… so adorable… Blair is one of the best men on the planet. He is just a good person. Lauren is amazing beyond belief. Such a perfect match.

At the reception I got to share a table with Heddy and Justin, Lacey, Chandra and Michael, Josh and Autumn, Zack and Holly… It was so great to get to catch up with other classmates as well… Most of our guys came in from all around the states. I hadn’t seen Lacey in a few years so we talked forever about life. After Blair and Lauren went off into the sunset… or dark sky since it was midnight… a few of us headed out to a random bar near the Marriott. Everyone was dancing on the bus… so much fun. I hadn’t hung out with Casey and Kyle in a long time… Kyle doesn’t have Facebook so it’s hard to know what he’s doing at all times!!! I’m not used to staying out that late anymore, but man, it was fun!!!

Friendships that blossom from many years ago are so precious. It’s that feeling knowing that you don’t have to explain yourself and you don’t have to explain your background. Everyone knows what you did in high school and everyone knows your first real boyfriend. It isn’t about proving yourself or playing the game. It’s just about being there with people and catching up on life. I know Sarah would have loved it and we were sad that of our group she had gone to Heaven. She was smiling from above… that is for sure! Nick enjoyed himself and had a great time with everyone. He seemed to fit right in! Our high school reunion is coming up in September and it shall be tough to top the wedding of the year!!!
