we flew from NYC to San Antonio, Texas last Friday morning to join Billy’s family for his cousin’s wedding weekend. we flew Southwest Airlines from Newark (works well for us since we live on the west side of Manhattan).
the rehearsal dinner “cocktail fiesta” was held at Club Giraud, and the food was amazing. I didn’t take many photos because I was having too much fun chatting with Billy’s family members and friends, but they had chips, salsa, queso, guacamole, pork tacos, made to order quesadillas, enchiladas, rice, beans, and desserts. we ate a lot!
Billy’s brother and sister + us.
tea is a must while traveling, and kombucha hit the spot in the Texas heat.
the wedding and reception were held at The Argyle on Saturday night – great venue!
day to night flowers.
the decorations were magical, and created a gorgeous glow.
the Texas-style cuisine was served buffet-style and included everything from salad and vegetables to beef tenderloin, potatoes, chicken fried quail and shrimp and grits.
the dance floor and live band (Limelight) were under a large tent, and there was a sitting area, a bar, and a photo booth set up outside.
neon jewelry made a late-night appearance. sliders and curly fries, too. my date:
we danced through the end of the last song, then sent off the bride and groom.
we had lunch with Billy’s mom and sister on Sunday at one of our favorite places, EZ’s – they have a location in Austin (where we both used to live), and there used to be one in Dallas (our hometown). we were the 1st people there. sweet potato tots.
some airplane essentials – slipper socks, pistachios, chocolate and a crossword.
we had so much fun in San Antonio, and I’m thankful we were able to make it to this family celebration. we arrived back in NYC late Sunday night, and got back into the swing of things yesterday. Billy and I had a fun conversation/development about some future plans over the weekend that I’ve been thinking about nonstop! and no, we don’t want to move to San Antonio (although it’s a lovely place). more later…
when/where/who – the last wedding you attended?
