sunday soccer

This past weekend we finally got around to seeing one of our friend’s (#25) soccer games. We drove out to Pasadena early Sunday morning, and the weather was just perfect.

our wedding: the party – part two

  Our DJ, Allen Darrah (who we again found through Texas Old Town’s preferred vendors), was great. He kept the party going and thankfully didn’t play any cheesy line dances (not really our thing).

our wedding: friends and family at the ceremony

It’s important that I share photos of our friends and family from our wedding day, for they have all shaped who we are today. We are so thankful for those who were able to attend and support us as we became husband and wife. I didn’t realize that Whitney and his groomsmen went out quite […]
