01-anthony-mary-wedding-023Since Australians don’t get as much delicious Mexican food as we Americans do, Anthony’s out-of-town family and friends seemed to especially appreciate the endless amounts of tacos and tamales.08-anthony-mary-wedding-032The only thing better than the food was the company. It was so nice to spend our night before the wedding relaxing with friends.04-anthony-mary-wedding-028And with family — which includes plenty of little ones! Introducing a stream of cuteness :)

05-anthony-mary-wedding-02906-anthony-mary-wedding-03007-anthony-mary-wedding-031After a lot of mingling, we sat down for multiple rounds of tacos.09-anthony-mary-wedding-033Anthony’s dad gave a hilarious and heartwarming speech!14-anthony-mary-wedding-041And his mom made a stunning cake.13-anthony-mary-wedding-040… and the parents kept delivering. They surprised us all by having an ice cream truck pull up to the driveway! Everyone became about 10 years old at this point and got really, really excited.10-anthony-mary-wedding-035
Anthony and I shared a banana-caramel-chocolate creation. When you can evenly split a cup of creamy ice cream on a hot summer night, you know your relationship is in the right place.11-anthony-mary-wedding-038Sprinkles on top.12-anthony-mary-wedding-039Thanks again to Ian Riley, our awesome photographer. Part III coming soon!

  1. Okay, I’m not even seeing the ice cream in that last pic. All I see are those beautiful nails! What color is that?? Perfect!

    • thanks! don’t remember the color — but it was my first and only experience with Shellac nails! lasted chip-free for about two weeks, which was awesome. definitely worth the extra $10 or so
