Things started on Thursday evening at the rehearsal dinner.

And here are the bride and groom!
After all of the practicing was over, we headed over to Feedstore BBQ for some dinner. We were handed some meal tickets, and we got our food.
|Chopped Brisket, Turkey, Mac n Cheese, Mashed Potatoes, and Rolls|
|Blackberry Cobbler for dessert :)|
After dinner was over, Blake and Terra Laine handed out the groomsmen and bridesmaids gifts. The bridesmaids got a cute duffel bag with a "wedding day survival kit" inside, and the groomsmen got these personalized mugs:
|Austin's says: "A-HEEZY Best Man July 6, 2012"|
Once the festivities were over we all trotted back to the hotel, hung out for a little bit, and then farmer's fight called it a night. We had a wedding to get ready for!
Friday the 6th was the big day. We woke up, ate lunch, got some last minute supplies (i.e. wine), and headed to the hotel to get ready! Austin had to be ready earlier for pictures and such, so I helped him suit up.

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Blake Whitlow!
The reception was at the Cowboy's Golf Course in Grapevine, and it was beautiful. I just love wedding receptions. So much fun and love and dancing and cake!

Here is the lovely bride's cake:
And the groom's cake:
After our yummy dinner of fish, veggies, salad, and bread, it was time to cut the cake...
...and for Austin to give his speech! Austin's toast was great. I love how great of a friendship Austin and Blake have.
Actually, I love the friendship that all of these boys have! These are Austin's best friends from high school, and they are still all great friends.

Needless to say, we had an amazing time, and we are both so happy for Blake and Terra Laine. They are such a great couple!
