Hallettsville Recap

This past Saturday night we celebrated (one more time!) Ali & Mark's recent marriage. I promise this will be the last post on these two for awhile! The wedding was held in Dallas and Mark's parents offered to host another reception in Hallettsville so many of their friends and family that were unable to attend the wedding could come. I have heard crazy stories about these famous parties in Hallettsville and let me tell you, this one did not disappoint :)

The party kicked off with the Grand March (this was a first for me) which is a tradition at most wedding receptions in this part of the county. Throughout the reception we drank beer and whiskey, ate BBQ and Kolaches (the real kind) and polka danced. I think Nelly might of even squeaked in for a few songs; Tyler's request :)

After the party we headed back to Mark's parents house and went out to the field where they had set up a bonfire. We stayed out there until the wee hours of the night listening to music, talking and drinking Shiner.

Some of the wedding party - getting ready for the Grand March!
