December 28 was our one-year anniversary! (Wow, that went by fast.) To commemorate this special occasion, we went back to Austin and stayed a night at the Driskill Hotel. It was lovely. Here's a photo of us on our balcony.
We walked all around the Mezzanine, where our ceremony and reception were held, and relived the moments of our wedding. Here we are right outside the ballroom, where our dinner table was last year.
And here's a shot of the beautiful mirrors that were in the Maximillion Room, where our wedding cakes were served.

Here we are sitting on a bench outside the ballroom. This is the spot where Burke and the groomsmen waited to go in for the ceremony.
And here we are in the ballroom, where our ceremony was held!Later, after we got back from dinner (at East Side Cafe!), we noticed that the Driskill staff had left us some chocolates and Evian as a special treat--probably because we had mentioned we were celebrating our anniversary. They even left a rose on our pillow, but check out what the note says:

Happy Birthday?! Well, they weren't that far off, I guess.
