With Beth’s wedding this Saturday! Yep! Saturday! Raise your hand if you can’t believe it has been a year! We surely can’t. We figured we would do a little Throwback Thursday so you could see a little of what Teal’s wedding was like. Her wedding was 4 years ago which was pre-blog and pre-crazy running life! Teal is about to celebrate her 4th wedding anniversary and was married November 22, 2008 at the Delaney Vineyards in Grapevine, Texas. Her love of wine and the fact that this place did not have a square inch of carpet made it a perfect place!
The day started out with a little pampering at the Green Peridot Salon in Frisco. Teal booked this place not knowing that it was Daniel Lewis who was voted fan favorite on the Bravo tv show Shear Genius! We all got our hair, makeup, and mini facials done, and even got to hang out with Daniel for a while!
The ceremony and reception were both at the same place to make life easier! We of course took all our pictures and hung out to wait for the wedding. There is such a huge time crunch on wedding day and in order to get the pictures all done Michael and Teal opted to see each other before the actual ceremony. The photographer basically set up the shot and really still makes Teal cry to this day.
The ceremony was very special! Teal is close to both of her dads and it is such a hard thing to deal with as a daughter for what to do when you have two dads on your wedding day. Another perfect thing about Delaney was that it had stairs leading to the aisle and she was able to “split” the walk down the aisle duties with both of her dads. Her step father walked her down the stairs to her dad, who then walked her down the aisle where Michael, and her brother, who was the “Reverend” would give the ceremony. Teal’s brother Brad became an ordained “Reverend” before the wedding to marry Michael and Teal. Yep they let you pick your title and he chose Reverend! Teal’s grandfather spoke at the wedding too and she still cherishes these pictures so much as he was lost only a month later. Teal feels so lucky to have stood up with her most cherished of friends. Some from childhood and others from later but all loved and cherished the same!
The ceremony ended and every one enjoyed cocktail hour while the staff turned the ceremony site into the reception! The changed happened super fast and then it was time to party! We had a seated dinner and then danced the rest of the night away!
Here are just a few pics of the wedding!
The skunk on the groom’s cakes was to remember the proposal. The entire proposal was a mess but memorable. Michael tried to ask Teal 3 times but was interrupted by a sprinkler system turning on, rowdy kids, and finally a skunk that ran in front of them!
Instead of a grand exit in a limo, Teal and Michael opted to leave in the infamous Pickle wagon! This 1960’s VW bus was not even running the day before the wedding but managed to make it!
With all of that said I cannot wait to stand up on Saturday next to Beth and see her get married! I love Beth and Brent so much and they are such a huge part of my life and will be forever! Her friendship means more to me than I can explain and she deserves such a perfect day! We will of course recap the day for you! We can’t wait for Saturday!
