Lauren ♥ Chart: A Love Story Made in Texas

Full disclosure: this bride and I still text on a regular basis, and I’m basically obsessed with her. Yeah, yeah, yeah, Chart’s pretty wonderful and all. But LAUREN. She is perfection. Her smile is light-up-the-room-contagious, she’s generous and sincere as they come, and her charismatic magnetism is matched only by her intellect. Sorry y’all, she’s officially TAKEN!

Now, about this wedding…we’ll think of The Westcotts every time we go to the Texas State Fair. “Why,” you ask? “What an unusual association to make,” you think? Well, listen to this. For their wedding reception, Lauren and Chart wanted to give their guests a taste of Texas. So they did the only natural thing: they brought the Texas State Fair into the lobby of the Ritz-Carlton Dallas! Carnival wheel, food stands, funnel cakes, a stilt walker, and the crowning jewel: a replica of the one and only Big Tex, LED style.

Enjoy this unique reception, these huge smiles, and this lovely bride, who’s now become a dear, dear friend.
