Weddings weddings everywhere

Steve and I are about burnt out on weddings this summer. After spending tons of time and energy on ours, all of our friends got married this summer too! This weekend we attended Andrew and Cassie's wedding. I have to admit, I was a little bit apprehensive about going. When they came to our wedding last month, they told us how similar our weddings were going to be. Right down to the cowboy boots ,dessert bar, pies and even the centerpieces! We weren't sure how attending this wedding so soon after ours would make us feel. Would they one up us? Would I notice details I left out? Would our friends who have attended both compare everything? I am happy to report that the weddings, though similar in theme, were completely different.

I loved all the details and touches Cassie had added to her wedding. It was a lot of fun and we danced all night long. She looked amazing in her short dress and boots and we drank till the keg ran dry! All in all, I was worrying for no reason. I should have never doubted myself or my wedding. I think no matter how wonderful someone else's wedding is, mine will always be perfect to me. It was after all my wedding and a day Steve and I will never forget. No one can one up that feeling/vision/memory that we have of our wedding day.
Speaking of our wedding day, we received a free night stay at the Raddison in the mail today! That is the hotel we stayed at on our wedding night. It was very nice, but they didn't follow through on some details Steve had planned out as a surprise for me. So when they emailed me asking to do a survey reporting how our stay went, I let them have it! It was our wedding night, everything should have been perfect! So, they wrote me a nice letter apologizing and a gift certificate for a free night's stay. I am sure its for the bottom of the line room... and we had originally stayed in the honeymoon suite.. but we will have to wait and see. Savin' the coupon for a rainy day!

Here are some pics from this weekend's wedding!
