For those of you who just have to know, I am pleased to report that Matt and my wedding was a complete success! We had such a wonderful time dancing, eating amazing food, and chatting with just about everyone! The wedding and reception were so beautiful! Our florist Rob Cook did an outstanding job on the floral decorations and our harpist (Cindy Horstman), DJ (Gus Garza), and soloist (Andrew Cook) were phenomenal. The whole scene was spectacularly elegant and everyone had a great time. Matt and I were very proud of ourselves because we both managed not to cry throughout the whole ceremony (though it was really hard because we were so happy).
The only downside to the whole thing was that Mom pulled a muscle in her back and had such an adverse reaction to the doctor’s pain medication that she was too sick to attend the rehearsal dinner. She was feeling much better during the wedding, but she is still recovering from all the aches this last week.
Matt and I had such a blast on our honeymoon! We stayed at the Mansion at Turtle Creek for two nights and then took a road trip to San Antonio for part of the week. We toured the Natural Bridge Caverns near New Braunfels and enjoyed the San Antonio Zoo and Sea World. Of course I took about ten billion photos during the honeymoon and I hope to upload some of those to my Deviantart.com page as soon as I can get my home computer and Internet running again.
Friday and Saturday saw Matt, Mom, Dad, and me moving all of my belongings to Matt’s and my new apartment. Matt has gone back to Pittsburgh to move his things down to San Angelo this week, so I have to unpack and put away the contents of as many remaining boxes as possible so we have room for him too. There is so much to do, but this is so much fun too!
