Kicking off our summer of family fun in Texas in the most epic way at Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark in Grand Prairie

Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark hosted my family to a visit for review purposes. The opinions are my own. I was not financially compensated for this post.
Though we’ve lived in Texas for over seven years now, there is still so much to see and do in our state!  This summer the #FabFam has decided to do as much as we can here locally, and really explore the great things our state has to offer.  We are calling it “the summer of Texas fun,” and a few weeks ago we kicked it off, well epically, with a visit at Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark.  

Epic Waters, which just opened in January 2018, is located in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area (in Grand Prairie, TX).   It is easily accessible from north or central Texas.   There are a lot of things that make it epic (more on that below), but arguably the best thing about Epic Waters is that you can enjoy it year-round.  The 80,000 square-foot indoor waterpark has a retractable roof and a climate-controlled interior, meaning you can be comfortable in it whether it’s the blazing humidity of summer, or the golf ball-sized hailstorms of winter in Texas.

Planning My Hollywood Glam Wedding

10 years ago today, I married my best friend, my life partner, and my lifelong epic true love.  After all this time, I had never gotten around to documenting my wedding planning here on the blog.  I decided that at the 10-year mark, it was about time (after finally posting my Old Hollywood-themed engagement photos the other week).  I am always so inspired by others' creativity online, and want to pay it forward in case it helps to inspire others.  So today, I am sharing my wedding planning details.

The theme was driven both by our style, and also by the venue itself.  We wanted a classic, Hollywood glam feel, but were also drawn to the rustic vibes of Calamigos Ranch in the mountains above Malibu.  We ended up thinking of our wedding as "Katherine Hepburn goes on a picnic in the country."  The colors were romantic and glamorous (black, white, red, and silver in satin tones), but the flowers evoked more of a textural, country feel.

Back when I was planning this wedding 11-ish years ago, we didn't have Pinterest.  What we did have was The Knot, and most of the ideas and vendor recommendations that inspired my planning were from local message boards and the "planning bios" of other brides.  Some of the girls I met through those boards are still in my life today, and are some of my best friends.  A lot of the info I have in today's post is adapted from my old planning bio on The Knot.

First, I have a few highlights from the day itself.  Then, keep scrolling for lots of detail photos, all my vendor reviews, and resource links.  I hope you enjoy reliving this planning process with me, and I hope I can inspire some of you for your own special day!
