Wedding Week Recap in Photos! Pt.1

So, we are ¬†finally home and settled in from our whirlwind Texas wedding and Spain/Transatlantic honeymoon (yes, i said Spain…eppp!). It’s the weekend so i have a little time to sit down and recap all the sweet madness ūüôā So here we go….

Saturday – On the Road

We headed out for Texas on Saturday October 13th and made it about halfway through the drive when we hit major traffic in¬†Louisiana…i’m talking nearly three hours in a dead stop-inch by inch crawl on the long LA bridges…ugh! Not fun anytime, but especially¬†when you’ve already been driving 9 hours.

(Boo traffic, you get a thumbs down!)

Sunday – Texas, baby!

After¬†stopping¬†for the night, we got to TX on Sunday morning and made it in time to attend my home church, i can’t tell you how great it was seeing my family and church members again! I missed them like crazy!! After service we had a family dinner for the¬†first¬†time with my family and Chason’s¬†parents…it was pretty great to have them all together!¬†The rest of the week included lots of walks at my sweet bay, family dinners, lunch with friends, and wedding crafts!¬†Probably one of my favorite moments was making Mr. & Mrs. signs with my mom, my sister and Chason’s mom…so fun!!

(we kind of messed up on the first try lol )

(Lunch with my sweet friend Damaris! Missed this gal! You don’t realize how rare good¬†friends¬†are until you live away from them)


In the middle of the week my cousin Candise flew down all the way from¬†Pennsylvania to be with us…i hadn’t seen her in 6 years!

Thursday – Tuxes, beaches, and bridal showers

On the¬†Thursday¬†before the wedding Chas and I went with his¬†parents¬†to pick up the tuxes and made a little stop through Matagorda Beach to show my mom and dad-in law they’re first TX beach! We had a lovely lunch at this new-ish little place called “Poco Playa” where we enjoyed some seafood and then headed out to the sand and the waves of my sweet Texas ‚̧

That night my sister and my cousin Candise threw me a wonderful and fun bridal party! It meant so much that they went to all the¬†trouble¬†to have this party for me, i wanted to cry! My church ladies, cousins, and friends were there and well as my¬†mamma¬†and¬†mamma¬†in-law…i was a very happy gal!!

My sister surprised me by making my favorite drink, bubble tea, and some yummy cupcakes! And my cousin made the super good food!


We played fun games like the toilet¬†paper wedding gown¬†challenge, and a version of the “Newlyweds” game that my cousin put¬†together, so fun!! She interviewed my husband on video and then asked me the same¬†question¬†to see if our answers matched…we did pretty well ūüôā The party was held by the bay outside of my town and decorated so cute, it was¬†definitely¬†a day i will remember! ‚̧

Friday РDecorating and Rehearsal Dinner


Friday was filled with finishing wedding crafts,¬†rehearsing ¬†decorating, and finally a fun¬†rehearsal¬† dinner…whew, long day for sure! Thankfully Chason’s sis and her husband arrived that day and really helped out! We had both our¬†families, my cousins, and my friend helping at the¬†rehearsal…gosh how i love them for that, they really put¬†they’re¬†backs into the work…literally…everyone was sore after the wedding! I have good peeps! ‚̧




(me and my mum and dad…awwws)

I have¬†to¬†be¬†honest¬†the stress kind of got to us that day…there was just still so¬†much¬†to¬†do and it was pretty head¬†spinning¬†(anxiety¬†meds to the rescue!!). But, thankfully by the end of¬†rehearsal¬†we were back in a happy mood and¬†ready¬†to eat!

We held the dinner at a nice steakhouse in Bay City (where the¬†wedding¬†was) and all my sweet wedding party and family¬†attended…twas a great time having them all there!


By the end of the night we were so out of it, but even still ¬†my awesome preggers cousin and her hubs came to my hotel to help me decide¬†on my wedding makeup…she is kool like that! I¬†barely¬†remember¬†that night¬†because¬†if all the stress and happenings but it was fun having them there hanging while we chose my wedding day look ūüôā

Whew! Sooo, that finally leads us to the big day!!! Stay tuned for part 2 of our wedding recap!
