Gillespie-Barber Wedding

Brittney Gillespie and Rusty Barber, both of Corsicana, were joined in matrimony June 13, 2013 at the Dreams Resort in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

The bride is the daugher of Nathan and Tammy Mosley Capps of Corsicana. The groom is the son of Pam Knight of Mildred. Tammy Capps served her daughter as matron of honor, and Nathan Capps served as best man.

The bride’s bouquet was fashioned from hot pink and lime green Gerber daisies and roses. She wore an Allure strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline and empire waist, accented with silver rhinestones. The dropped shirred waist and bodice were pleated chiffon, as was the column skirt. The bride chose silver rhinestone sandals, and silver rhinestone jewelry and tiara to accent her bridal gown.

The beach wedding took place on a private, white sand beach facing the Atlantic Ocean and with the Sierra Madre mountains and jungle in the background.

The wedding was followed by cake and champagne toasts on the beach, then dinner at Portofino’s Italian Restaurant at the resort.

Musical selections during the wedding included Iris, by the Goo Goo Dolls; My Kinda Crazy by Brantley Gilbert; and Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not? by Thompson Square.

The couple enjoyed an eight-day extended honeymoon at the Dreams Resort in Puerto Vallarta, and now make their home in Corsicana.

  • samantha stroube daviss.jpg Take time to breathe

    We are all in such a rush these days that time is passing us by and I don’t even think we realize it. This year our family decided to stay home for Spring Break and have a “stay-cation.” I had such feelings of guilt not taking our kids somewhere, because we love to take every opportunity to expose them to the world, but it just wasn’t in the cards for us this year.
