I am finally able to update about my sister's wedding. Yesterday, we were visiting with family that was in town from Texas and then we came home and crashed. (Last night, we rented a movie from Red Box and 5 minutes into, Jason and I both were asleep. Guess we will have to try to watch it again another time.)
Shawn and Darris got married at Hillwood at Davies Plantation. It was such a neat place to have a wedding. Shawn's theme was "country chic" and I think it couldn't have been more perfect for her personality. (Can you see the moss covered "W" in the picture on the mantle? My mom and dad made that...I think that was one of my favorite things they did for the wedding.)
The food was DELICIOUS! Going with the theme, Shawn wanted some good-ole home cooking. She had Fried chicken and pulled pork, crawfish dressing, macaroni & cheese, a mashed potato bar with all the fixins, fried green tomatoes, corn pudding, green bean bundles, deviled eggs, and rolls.
For wedding cake, we had Muddy's cupcakes! YUM! There were about 7 different flavors the guests could choose from. For a going away happy, Shawn and I piped a "W" on moonpies with icing and wrapped them up in cute little bags (there was even RC cola to drink with them).
The bridesmaid dresses were perfect. They looked great on any body type. Isn't Shawn's dress beautiful? It reminds me of "Sweet Home Alabama". She even wore cowboy boots.
Jackson was the ring"barrow" and couldn't have done a better job! He was such a ham. He behaved and walked down the aisle like a pro and even posed for all the pictures. I was such a proud Momma.
...and Jackson danced like a maniac! Are you seeing the proof on Jackson's shirt and pants that he had a chocolate cupcake? He is SO messy!
