Making the time count

The Newlymeds have returned from Austin where we were able to celebrate the wedding of two of our new friends.  We are at the beginning of the wedding circuit and always look forward to sharing in others' specials days.  (and hopefully weekends, if Doctor J can squeeze in two days off in a row)  Our wedding was such a magical time for us, and now it is fun to watch our friends experience the same special moment!

Doctor J hopped on a plane after an overnight shift and arrived in Austin on Saturday morning.  After a little flag football and a long nap, he was all geared up for the evening's festivities.  I spent the day brunching with a dear childhood friend at South Congress Cafe and enjoying the town.  I also took a lovely walk around Town Lake, one of my favorite Austin activities.


We then got ready for the wedding and enjoyed a fun evening TOGETHER!

Here is a picture of one of the flower girls dancing the night away.  Don't you just love the innocence.


Being a wedding planner and also having the experience of just planning my own wedding, I always love to take in all of the little details.  Two of my favorite details from the wedding were:

1) These creative bride & groom tissues that were placed on a tray before you walked into the ceremony


2) This beautiful chuppah was silk screened with family pictures from all generations.

We then road tripped it back to the big D with our friends C & L who also happened to be in Austin for the weekend.  We chatted about our weekends, celebrities and even found a truck stop with both Wendy's and McDonalds!  Wendy's for the frosty + McDonalds for the mighty kids meal + Doctor J = one happy girl.
