Finally it was time for our grand exit at 6:50!

About 10 minutes later, we were dropped off at our limo! All limo photos taken by our iPhones :)
We were SUPER excited. I love limos!!
We got to the Gaylord around 7:40, where Kelly met up with us to take a few more pictures!
Funny story: we were obviously quite elaborately dressed, and while we were checking in, a woman and her young daughter got in line behind us. I had my back to them, and Kelly told me after we walked away from the check-in table that the little girl asked her mother, "Is that a princess?" and Kelly nodded her head as an answer. Awww!
We got up to the room and wanted to get the iconic "carry the bride over the threshold" picture -
Then we had to take some jumping-on-the-bed pictures, naturally.
|The ceiling was a little low for jumping...|
Then we took one last picture on our balcony.
Then, Kelly was done! Onto the rest of the night.
We decided to meet a few friends, which ended up being about 25 people, at a place called The Winewood Grill, a fantastic grill in Grapevine, not far from where the Gaylord Texan was. This place was fantastic and extremely accommodating and I couldn't recommend them enough!
Some of our friends wanted to buy us a bottle of nice wine, so my dear friend and college roommate Sarah chose this wine. It just so happened that I had visited Châteauneuf-du-Pape when I studied abroad. The year? 2009. It was so perfect and serendipitous, I was so moved!!
And here's the whole gang!
So much love! So much support! It was truly a wonderful night and I will never, ever forget it.
Next... The Honeymoon!
