Encore Celebration

On Saturday, August 7th Chris and I enjoy our Encore Celebration.  This was our celebration for all our friends and family that could not join us at the wedding.  Originally I thought we would have a few guest like 80 or so….MAN WAS I WRONG!!!  Before Chris and I even left for our wedding we already had 80 RSVP’s to the Encore.  I couldn’t believe how many friends and family were joining us.  I believe by the end of the night we had about 135 people roll through the party!!

To me this party was even more challenging to plan than the wedding.  You know for the wedding mom, Abby, and I planned it all in ONE day! YIPPEE!!! When we were on our “scouting” trip.  Now for the Encore Celebration I have been planning a while.  We had our celebration at a Los Vaqueros in the Stock yards.  I picked this location simply because every year our teacher organization has and end of the year party there.  I have always enjoyed that party and the food….then I thought heck lets party hear.  Their location is simply perfect for events like this.  Plus it is located in the Stock yards which offers a tourist like feel for our out of town guest. 

No for the planning….my poor mom!  She didn’t get to really “decorate” for the wedding so I gave her the back home party.  I know how much she loves to decorate and with her AMAZING help it turned out BEAUTIFUL!!!  We spent the morning decorating the room.  It began as a big pile and ended as a masterpiece.  My family always has a way of making everything work out. 

The party was wonderful….Chris and I were so excited to see everyone.  I loved getting to wear my dress again!!!  We couldn’t have asked for a better turn out.  Oh and did I mention that my sister rented us a PHOTO BOOTH (I wanted one but thought it was too much money….so she was kind enough to give it to us)?  Honesty the BEST MONEY ever spent.  We had such a blast in that thing…pretty sure I was hogging it too!  Check out all the super cute pics too!  Brian Capshaw at Photo booth Planet was so kind to provide his booth for our event!!!
