Lubbock Wedding Recap

I know that I normally do my weekend/out of town recaps on the following Monday, but obviously I was too busy, preoccupied or something this week because I totally forgot until Nate practically begged me last night to put the pictures up on Facebook.

Oh yeaaaah! I guess I should blog too! :)

We woke up bright & early Friday morning to head to Lubbock for the weekend, but not without stopping at Starbucks first! Of course we hit some traffic (I told him we should've left earlier!) ;)

Let's get this show on the road!

Is this some kind of a cruel joke?!

We made it! Me on the comfy hotel bed :)

Friday night was the rehearsal & rehearsal dinner which was at Cagle's Steakhouse. Holy deliciousness! The steak was as big as my face.. see for yourself!

See what I mean?

Afterwards, we headed back to the bride & groom's place for some drinks & hanging out. It ended up being a VERY long night. Meaning I fell asleep on the couch while Nate stayed out reminiscing until almost 3 am.

What can I say? He hadn't seen some of those guys in almost 3 years! I couldn't be THAT girlfriend! ;)

Saturday morning, we went and looked around some of the shops surrounding the hotel. They were all new to Nate because it had only been built 2 years ago.

We also took a tour of the Texas Tech campus. He should me the buildings he had classes in, and the infamous apartment they always talk about. It was a lot of fun going down memory lane with him.

Before heading back to the hotel to get ready for the wedding, we stopped at Lubbock's finest - Spanky's!

Best cheesesticks ever, I kid you not!

After getting all dolled up with my gorgeous boy toy, we were off to the bride's parents' place for some pre-wedding shenanigans. Nate was in charge of the music for the wedding & he was also an usher.

Aren't we cute?

Here's a few of my favorites from the wedding/reception.. which by the way was outdoor in the 103 degree heat. Not kidding. I almost died.

Watching his bride walk down the aisle.

She was fighting back tears the whole time!

Right after being pronounced husband & wife, SO adorable!

Table centerpieces, which the wind later ripped off the tables..

CUPCAKES! :)
Love our sweet friends!

Best friends forevah!

Everyone had a blast! It was a pretty wedding, the bride & groom had a lot of fun & they are a couple that will totally last. :)

Congrats guys, glad we could be a part of your special day.. hope you're enjoying Mexico! Love y'all!

1. You're a way cooler girlfriend than me. I would've insisted that he take me back to the hotel, and then return to partying. Mainly because I wouldn't want to risk snoring on the couch...or drooling or something.

2. Outdoor wedding in 103 weather?! They are wayyyy braver than I am. Goodness.

3. I love hydrangea.

You look so pretty, and the wedding looks like a blast! I was just talking to a friend yesterday about out-of-town weddings and how they are always so much fun!
