Our Weekend in Texas::Story 4

We've made it to the main event--the wedding of Josh and Sarah. Cameras were banned during the ceremony with the threat of fines if pictures were later discovered. lol. That policy was printed in the entertaining program handout. The ceremony itself was 10 minutes and consisted of awesome trumpet playing, I Corinthians 13 and vows. The guests were dismissed to order from food trucks (more on that later in this post) and Brandi and I hung out during pictures until we could sit down with the family.

Awesome picture I stole from facebook.
The flowers were stunning.
Ready and waiting...
Another pretty arrangement.
The reception area. Each table had a grouping of 3 small flower arrangements.

The Van Heslop family minus a few grandchildren.
The 3 sisters in law.
There was a lineup of 3 food trucks that offered a selection of various foods. Guests could walk up to any truck at any time as often as they wanted and order food. This was such a big city novelty for those of us from Maryland and West Virginia. The menus were as interesting as the trucks.

This is the table where the Heslop family selected drinks from. You see at the right end of the table is water, tea and lemonade. At the other end of the table was cherry limeade another fruity drink and wines. While our husbands waited for food at the food trucks, Brandi and I picked up drinks. Brandi thought Joel would like cherry limeade and I thought it looked good too, but I wanted to know just HOW cherry it tasted. So I filled a cup and tasted it. My first thought was that there was soda in the cherry limeade. My second thought was that that was some super strong soda...and my eyes got big and I started laughing. My first ever taste of an alcoholic beverage. AND I'M PREGNANT!!! It was the tiniest of sips. Just the irony. How naive of us to think the whole table would be non-alcoholic!! lol.

At 10pm Josh and Sarah left the reception through a walkway of sparklers. We left shortly after they did. It had been another big day and we were tired.
