The Shriner Club, a beautiful and large venue was rented for the day, amazing crowd-pleasing catering from Texas Rib Kings for all of our guests was brought in, kegs were purchased and moved by the Dads, and amazing, ironically large pies were picked up from Tiny Pies, along with bluebell ice cream. The mom's and my matron of honor, Annie, picked up flowers and decorated, and our dream rehearsal dinner, planned for 6 months, came to life. I may be bias, but it was the best 4th of July ever!

Our rehearsal dinner was better than we ever could have imagined. Thanks to Brendan's parents for making our dreams come true and making all of our guests feel welcomed to Texas! It was certainly a night to remember...and people are still remembering the food!
