Austin Bachelor Party

Texas-Sized Bachelor Party

With less than six weeks until the wedding, Mike and his buds saddled up to Austin for a weekend of beer, BBQ, & bourbon! With no shortage of general shenanigans to chase Texas’ finest BBQ beef brisket and skillfully crafted libations, the group was lucky to make it back in one piece…giddy up!

Bachelorette Fun in the Sun

With the wedding quickly approaching, Shari and her best girlfriends took a weekend to escape for some much-needed poolside R&R and requisite partying in Scottsdale, Arizona. They had an amazing time at the W Scottsdale and left with many great memories, including a photo op with Dennis Rodman himself!
