Cassie's Wedding Week!!

One of my very best friends, Cassie, got married this week!! We have been friends since the 8th grade! This week has definitely been busy but so much fun!

Tuesday was the Bachelorette Party. All the bridesmaids and the bride went to Dallas to a nail salon to get pedicures then we went to The Melting Pot for dinner.

The salon was in Richardson which is about 50 min from Sherman. Well, it ended up taking us 3 hours to get there. Why? Because the iphone navigation system is horrible!! It took us all the way to Dunkenville which is totally on the other side of Dallas. We got in touch with the nail people and they gave us the real directions back to their salon.

Once we got their, we all got pedicures and enjoyed being out of the car! Then we headed over to The Melting Pot....

Oh. My. Word. I can not say enough good things about the Melting Pot. I had never been there before but had only heard good things. It is a bit pricey but a great place to go for special occasions.

For those of you who have never been to The Melting Pot, it is a fondue restaurant. My favorite thing was dessert, of course!! We were brought a plate full of strawberries, cheese cake, marshmellows, pound cake (my fav), and rice crispy treats. Of course we needed some chocolate to dip these delicious goodies favorite was the creme brulee white chocolate with crushed up oreos. Gives me chills just thinking about how delicous that was!!! mmmm!!!!!

After dinner, we went back to Sher-town for the "party". Cassie opened her gifts and we played a few games then crashed at about 1am.

Wednesday was the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. It was super hot!!
Thursday was the big day! They got married on Thursday, June 16th, because it is a family anniversary date and they wanted to keep the tradition. It was the neatest wedding!! The theme was vintage carnival. It was held out at Cassie's parents house. I can not wait to see the professional pictures. They will be stunning!!!

Cassie got in a major car accident the day of her wedding. Yes, I know! It's totally crazy and things like this aren't supposed to happen!! She was t-boned by a truck and the boy driving the truck wasn't old enough to even have a drivers license. He hit her going 60 miles an hour and she was stopped. When help arrived, they didn't think the driver would even be alive. As they approached her car, they were going to have to cut her car to get her out. She was totally fine and climbed out the passenger window. Definitely a God thing!! She did hit her face so she had to go to the hospital to get MRI's and cat scans. Everything looked good but she had a pretty big bruise under her eye.

With all of that said, the wedding was post poned until 8pm. It ended up being perfect timing! The sun was setting and it was absolutely beautiful. Cassie was very proud of her bruise and didn't even want it covered up with make up and she even wore her hospital bracelet!! She looked absolutely amazing!!
