Glenn and Andrea Create A Fairytale

The beaming bride began her walk down the aisle and I felt a tear come to my eye. I flashed back to the days of college. Andrea had boyfriends here and there as there are with every girl in college. Flashing forward to this day when she marries her match. Everything was just too perfect. Such a wonderful union for two lovely people.

Andrea and Glenn's wedding weekend began as we had a luncheon with the girls on Friday and rehearsal dinner. I was sick the entire week battling to get better! I was still a bit miserable on Friday coughing up a few lungs. The luncheon was beyond amazing at Ocean Prime. Andrea's mom's friends set it up for us. Just perfect. Then the rehearsal dinner was at Iron Cactus. We had such a great time just talking with everyone. Andrea's family is precious and so very kind. It was fun to hang out with them.

We primped all day for the wedding at The Crescent. We laughed, listened to music and just played. All of the bridesmaids are so sweet and friendly so we all got along great.

We finally all headed down for the wedding. It was outside, but not that hot. Everything was gorgeous! The ceremony was both funny and touching. Baby Kayla was the Baby of Honor! She was so good and so very adorable. So much love in that space.

We all headed inside to the reception. I always joke I don't dance, but I decided since Andrea loves to dance that I had to just get over it. I walked in on her brother's arm with Raelyn on the other and tried my best to dance! Then they gals all came in and the Texas Tech Fight Song started. If you haven't seen a bride in the air in a stunt in her dress, you haven't seen anything yet! It was just way too cool. All of the former cheer and dance squad members joined us on the floor for the dance. It was a sight to see!!! Just pure laughter and fun! The rest of the night was spent dancing and talking with new and old friends. Andrea's family is from Louisiana, and boy, they can party! There were more of them out on the dance floor than us! And... the band... Emerald City played the reception. They were amazing... words cannot even describe how great they were! After the wedding we headed across the way to an after party... which I have never been to a wedding with an after party. It was really neat. We were all tired by this time and just enjoyed a nice chat. The bride and groom joined those of us that went to say bye! We didn't get home until 2 AM... well, in all of this, when we went to get our cars from the valet they had apparently wrecked Anna's car... wow... so we were waiting on that to get resolved. It was a fairy tale of a night. Personally it warms my heart that God blessed me with such wonderful people. Looking around that room and listening to the toasts... everyone there was genuine and salt of the earth. Truly blessed are we.
