Hey, Pictures friends, fans, and family! We hope everyone has recovered from the Thanksgiving craziness just in time for the Winter holiday craziness!! :D We’ve been blessed to be busy this fall and looking forward to some upcoming events as well but first, just in the last few weeks, we had to say a bittersweet goodbye to our friend and awesome party planner, Jo Ann Woodward. We’ve known and worked with her for 20+ years now and will be sad to see her retire; she was really an amazing professional and certainly no one will ever be able to take her place in the industry in quite the same way. We were lucky enough to work with her on her very last event, the gorgeous wedding of Allison Drell at the remodeled Houston Omni and it was a lovely, memorable night! The weekend of the 13th we got to experience a new venue for us, the Lambermont Castle near downtown San Antonio to share the nuptials of Leah and Garrett Flores. Beautiful couple, beautiful ceremony and we couldn’t have done it without Sarah Lomas with All In The Details Events - she and her staff did a really great job and our thanks go out to them! On the 19th, we partied at the Houston Country Club with the new Mr. and Mrs. Mason and Kellie Thomas. Kellie’s dad, Ken Smith, has to be one of the greatest dads we’ve EVER worked with. Going way above and beyond, Ken even rewrote the lyrics to the dance he shared with his daughter Kellie! We were blown away by the whole experience and want to thank Ken, Kellie, Mason and the whole family for letting us share that night, it was awesome! The very next night we were back in San Antonio at the beautiful St. Anthony hotel to celebrate with Danielle Gross and Ryan Larimar. One of our favorite things is to do multiple events within families and since we were able to perform for the second sibling from the Gross family we couldn’t be prouder! Now that the turkey coma has worn off, we’re looking forward to some great holiday parties coming up in Tyler and Driftwood at the iconic Salt Lick pavilion, Debutante celebrations in Corpus Christi and Odessa, as well as weddings in Dripping Springs, Dallas and a special NYE wedding in Waco at the Baylor Club in McLane Stadium! What a great way to start off the new year! As always, we look forward to seeing all of you this year and will be posting future events and public appearances as they come up, so please check back frequently and stay in touch - much love to everyone and Happy Holidays from The Pictures Band!!!
