A True Texas Wedding

Last night we were lucky enough to be a part of our friends Hayley and Matthew’s wedding. It was held at the Salt Lick Pavilion, near Driftwood, Texas. I didn’t know what to expect for a wedding at a barbecue place, and it turned out to be lovely, fun, and delicous.

The pavilion was decked out in twinkle lights, and the tables had centerpieces of boots and flowers. Our favors were koozies imprinted with the wedding date…too cute!

The ceremony was held outside under the pecan trees, and next to a waterfall. It was so beautiful, though the mosquitos had quite a meal with us. We traveled to the wedding with Lindsay and Chad…

And spent time with our friends Rob and Shara…

And Courtney and Mark and little Freya (who at this point had just woken up from her nap and was clutching on to Daddy for dear life)…

And we saw our friends Gabby and Nick, but somehow didn’t get a picture of them, with Gabby’s newly-pregnant tiny belly. And, of course, we saw Hayley and Matthew…

They both looked so gorgeous, and so very happy.

After the ceremony, our group of friends set to work uncorking bottles of wine and serving it up for the guests. We were labeled “The Wine Club”…as we often get together for wine nights, and we traveled with the couple to wineries to choose the local wines for their wedding.

I couldn’t get a good picture of the food, but my plate was piled high with ribs, brisket, sausage, chicken, potato salad, beans, coleslaw, and bread. And people, this wasn’t your everyday barbecue…this stuff was AWESOME. Chad noted that he had never eaten this much at a wedding before. And after dinner, along with three different cakes, we had the restaurant’s signature blueberry and peach cobbler with ice cream. Yum.

There was a heckuva lot of dancing, and even Freya got onto the dance floor a bit…

It was a fabulous evening, with fabulous friends, and I’m so glad we were a part of it.

  2. Oh, Salt Lick! You make me want to go back to Austin. The only thing that could get me there faster than Salt Lick is Kreuz Market. Yum.

  3. That is so cool! I like how it was outdoors and can’t go wrong with Salt Lick! Wow, looks like everyone had a great time! Classic centerpieces also haha 🙂

  4. We have the same exact beer koozies. Same company I am sure. 9 years ago however. I put 5 in a box and hid them in the attic to pull out for our 25th anniversary.

  5. I love country/Texas weddings. I’m having mine in Luckenbach and I’m sure the arrangements are going to be something similar. Very very cute and congrats to the bride and groom. Many blessings!
