Brent and Liz are great friends of mine and Eric's. Brent and Eric know each other through poker and became fast friends. I'd say that Liz and I hit it off right away as well. It might be the midwesterners in us! Liz first met Brent's sister, Ashley, though work and they became good friends. Such good friends actually, that Ashley invited Liz to the annual Hanksfest in her hometown in upstate New York. Hanksfest has become a notorious party where the Hanks family and their friends get together for a weekend of camping, drinking, socializing, listening to Leroy Townes live, and just an all around good time. This is where Brent and Liz met and from what I understand, the rest is history. These two are such a good match for each other. Anybody can tell when you meet them and I can't even count the times I heard people saying it over the weekend!
Brent and Liz decided to get married in Las Vegas where they both live now. The ceremony was at the beautiful Red Rock Country Club and the reception was in the backyard of a house some of their friends rent out, most commonly known as "The Vine". The backyard was perfect for their laid back reception with a pig roast, open bar, and full stage for Leroy Townes to play all night long (or until there were enough neighbor complaints!) It was only fitting for Leroy Townes to play at their wedding since they had played live the weekend they met! (This band is so good people! If you haven't heard of them, head over to iTunes immediately to check them out.) Guests were told to feel free to dress down for the backyard reception and flannels were abundant and I may have even seen some onesie pajamas! The whole day was very much "Brent and Liz"; a laid-back, good time, with a lot of great people and amazing music.
I could go on and on about this seriously amazing couple, but I'll stop so you can see some photos from their wedding! Here are some of my favorites from the day.
