I *heart* weddings

Our friends J&M finally tied the knot last night! They had been dating for what seems like forever and got engaged last year. We have been looking forward to their wedding for the past 12 months and they did not disappoint.J&M weddingThey held the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and reception at the Petroleum Club, which is on the 43rd (?) floor of a tall building here in H-town and afforded us an excellent view of the city.

They had a harpest, DJ as well as Molly and the Ringwalds as musical entertainment. J&M weddingThey served mojitos (Peach for M whose family lives in Atlanta, Blackberry for J who is apparently always on his, and classic Cuban) in addition to their open bar for our liquid entertainment. J&M weddingThe 4 course sit-down dinner was delicious as were their cakes (the groom's cake was made in the form of a Blackberry! and the bride's cake has the most delicious fondont!). J&M wedding

They even had a candy bar with all sorts of candy in the colors of their wedding (red and purple, apparently). J&M weddingBut my absolute favorite part of the whole affair was the photobooth! We took tons and tons of photos (naturally) and they were so fun! I wish I had taken a photo of all of us in the booth! I did snap tons of us on and off the dance floor!J&M wedding

J&M weddingI wore my favorite pink dress of all time. I have decided that life is too short not to wear my favorite color. Black seems kind of dull to me right now.

We are not especially close to J or M, but they are definitely good peeps.J&M weddingI am especially envious of their honeymoon - 2 weeks to Dubai, Kenya and Seychelles. I would really love to go on another African safari in my life!
