Ken & Jackie - The Wedding (Part 1)

Ken and Jackie got married yesterday in one of the most original and relaxed weddings I have ever witnessed.  They had no wedding party, just family in attendance, and Ken's dad performed the ceremony.  Everything took place in and on the grounds of a home they've rented for the weekend, so there were no time restrictions or constraints, and everything just sort of "flowed".

The people who own the home are avid hunters, and the inside is filled with animals like the ones below.  You know how in TV shows, any time anyone is from Texas, they have a really strong accent?  I feel like this home would be the stereotypical "Texas" home that people who don't live here must imagine when they think of Texas.

 The flowers were beautiful, especially Jackie's bouquet.  I love the wheat mixed in.

 Just 3 weeks old!

 The actual ceremony took place in a gazebo out back on the water.  Here is Ken getting his first look at Jackie.
 Doesn't she look stunning!  I absolutely love her dress.  So elegant and simple.

 The reception will take place this afternoon....I can't wait!

Tim & Marie - The Wedding

 Tim and Marie got married a couple weeks ago and I'm so glad I was able to be a part of their day.  I hadn't spent a whole lot of time with the couple beforehand, but my impressions of both of them were that they were quiet, a bit reserved, and pretty laid-back.  Well, I think I had Marie pegged - I'm not sure I have ever seen a more laid-back bride.  She was not stressed or rushed about anything!  How awesome to feel that way on your wedding day.   Throughout the night it was amazing to see the transformation that came over her when she would look at Tim.  It was very obvious that she was very in love with him....and he with her, although I have to say I did get the quiet and reserved part wrong with him.  I think Tim had a smile on his face and a laugh or a joke on his lips the whole night.  He is one happy man.  What a beautiful and fun celebration!
