Houston Wedding

IMG_1173This weekend Linzy and I were in Houston for Brenden and Allison's wedding. We had an awesome, if slightly busy, time.

It has been a long time since we last went to a friend's wedding out-of town, somewhere that required a lot of people to travel. For a normal local wedding we would go to just the wedding and reception, maybe the rehearsal depending on how we were involved. Which is fun, but in this case there were a lot of good friends all in town for the whole weekend without busy schedules. So we got to do a lot of hanging out and having fun catching up.

Houston was an interesting place to visit, and the weather was pretty pleasant the whole weekend. I can't see how anyone lives there in (say) August though, as it was already pretty humid and it has to be absolutely misearable in late summer.

The wedding itself went smoothly and was a nice ceremony. The reception was a lot of fun as well, and everyone seemed to have a good time. Things ended pretty early on Saturday, but many of us met up afterwards for some pool and indoor shuffleboard at the resort's bar. We had a great time, and I was happy to see my good friends married.

The Johnson boys.

The bow-ties, despite not needing to be tied were still a pain to get on.
